Sunday, March 15, Noon to 3 pm. This is a super time to slip some plants into the soil that will thrive this season. Gregory Ware will be at The Newton (in front of the former Southwest Gardener shop) with a selection of his locally grown organic plants that are set to grow now. One change this time: Please come prepared to pay for plants with CASH or CHECK. Many thanks!
Here’s a list of what you’ll find:
Squash Varieties – Flamino a Costata, an heirloom type zucchini; Benning’s Green Tint scallop patty pan; Raven dark green zucchini; Angel Hair personal-sized spaghetti squash; Bush Baby zucchini; Honey Bear acorn squash; JWS butternut squash developed by Johnny’s Seeds of Maine; Eight Ball round, green zucchini; Jester delicata squash; old-time favorite (we always sell out of this one) Yellow Crook Neck squash.
We have six types of Cucumbers – Diva, Early Fortune, Lemon, Parisian Pickling, Bushy and Japanese Climbing . Those last two are both ideal for large pots or smaller gardens.
Beans – In cell packs we have some ‘Clemson Spineless’ Okra & ‘Provider’ Green beans. We have 3 types of Runner beans – ‘Scarlet’, ‘Sunset’ & the notorious ‘Painted Lady’.
Yes, there are tomatoes and herbs – We have close to a dozen types of tomatoes which are good sized and ready to plant. You’ll also find a small selection of herbs. Gregory promises to bring whatever looks saleable. He’ll also bring a few potted herb gardens in granite wear pots.
This will be a busy Sunday so please feel free to park in the lots across 3rd Avenue or in the light rail lot across Camelback (where there is shade and a light-controlled crosswalk).
