I finally finished potting plants up last week and now they just need some time to grow and deal with being a tomato plant in Kansas City. I’ve got lots of days of moving plants inside and outside to protect them from our roller coaster weather, but the ones that survive will be tough as nails and ready to plant in your gardens in about a month.
We had a few casualties and lack of germination of some varieties, so I updated the flier to reflect the changes. I will not have German Johnson, Abe Lincoln, Grandpa Charlie, and Polish Linguisa this year. I added Purple Potato Top and Stupice to the list though.
Please print off the flier and bring your own container to take your plants home in this year and I’ll hook you up with a free plant of your choice!
As always, I recommend waiting until the first full week of May to plant outside, but I know some of you get impatient and want to plant early. If you come to one of the early plant sale dates, don’t be surprised that the plants are a bit small. I have them timed just so they’ll be at their prime for planting in early May. You can plant earlier if you want to take a chance, but be prepared to cover them on cool nights as any frost will kill them.
I’ll be open for sales on the following dates and times. If you need a different time than those I list, please let me know and I’ll work out a time for you to stop by.
