The 2014 Heirloom Plant Line-Up is Posted!
As I write this, old man Winter still has a tight grip on us — more than 6 inches of snow has once again blanketed the garden. Yet, his icy grip will slowly loosen as the days lengthen, and we slip and slide ever closer to glorious spring (less than 30 days away — at least in “calendar” days!). Friends, it’s time to start thinking about your 2014 garden!
We’ve been very busy at the 2nd Street Chicken Ranch, ordering heirloom seeds, gathering our seed-starting and planting supplies, and updating our website to list all of the heirloom tomato and vegetable plants that we’re offering for sale for the 2014 gardening season!
What’s New for 2014
In addition to more than 20 varieties of heirloom tomato plants, the Coeur d’Alene Coop is also offering heirloom vegetable starts; and for those who have limited garden space or like to grow in containers, we have several space-saving heirloom vegetable plants to suit your small-space needs!
All of our heirloom plants are grown from open pollinated, non-genetically modified seed, in our Coeur d’Alene, Idaho garden. You won’t find the common “big-box store” hybrids here. What you will find are heirloom tomatoes in a rainbow of colors — red, white, and yes, even “blue,” along with orange, yellow, green and purple; and heirloom vegetable starts, including unique cucumbers, pepper (hot and sweet), and summer squashes.
Ordering and Purchasing is Easy!
All our plants are available from our Coeur d’Alene garden and from our stand at the Wednesday Kootenai County Farmer’s Market in Downtown Coeur d’Alene.
However, you can now “reserve” your plants in advance from our website! Just click on the Plant Reservation Form on the Home page. Plants can be pre-ordered for local pick up with a $5 fee via PayPal. The fee will be deducted from your total purchase when you pick up your plants from our garden.
So, grab a cup of tea and check out all our old and new favorites!
