Week of 3/30/15
It’s been snowing here in Maine since November, so we’re immersing ourselves in seed ordering and seed starting just to see a glimmer of warmth on the horizon. Something else we’re looking forward to is spring planting (You can read all about how to handle spring plants by following this link)! We’ve picked up several new varieties of spring plants this year, so we put together this blog post to talk about them a little bit.
To ensure that you get the varieties you want, place your orders for spring plants by the first week of May! Our spring plants sell out fairly quickly, so it’s best to order as soon as possible.

Winter (especially here in the Northeast) can be a very overwhelming time to get sick… and unfortunately, it seems to be the most common time to get sick as well. We’ve put together a list of natural immunity boosters you can consume to stave off colds and the flu alike… the best course of action is always prevention!
It’s that time of year again! We’ve started our 2015 seed trials with pansies and tomatoes this year, with many more new and exciting seeds to come!

We’ve put together two lists… one for those gardeners who are just starting their gardening journey, and one for those who have been gardening for many years!
