I am not sure how many people realize they can bring seed to their local greenhouses and ask for custom plants. Most would prefer a quantity order for the extra labeling and specifications. Our nursery man labels each tray with my name, the items planted and correlates my planting schedule with the desired size of plant etc... grows organically on request - and seems really attentive each year we bring them seed. Imagine my delight when I first approached them almost 7 years ago!
Today I took the following seeds where they will be grown to a good planting size for our Northeast climate, picked up around 3rd week of May, hardened off, and planted in the fields on our farm.
I am planting ALOT less this year as I focus on our 20c kitchen - up and running - and all the other details that go into bringing a successful product to market!
