  • Organic Sugar Baby Watermelon Seedling

    Growing to five to six inches when ripe, this sweet watermelon is the ideal size to for a couple to eat at one time or store in the fridge. The skin of the melons have light and dark green stripes.

  • Organic Sugarloaf Borca Chicory Seedling

    Each pot includes one to three seedlings depending on the size of each.

    Sugarloaf Borca Chicory has a distinctive presence in the garden. We have found it to be sweeter than other chicories we have grown. Try it in this simple Chicory Salad with Walnuts and Parmesan recipe by Ellie Krieger on foodnetwork.com.

    1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
    1 tbsp. sherry vinegar
    3 tbsps. walnut oil
    1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 lb. chicory
    1/4 cup shaved Parmesan cheese

    In a dry skillet, toast the nuts over medium-high heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Set aside to cool. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, mustard, salt and pepper, to taste. In a large bowl, toss the chicory with the dressing. Place on individual plates and top with walnuts and shaved Parmesan.

  • Organic Sweet Alyssum Seedling

    One of our favorite seed producers from whom we purchased these seeds thinks the fragrance of this white Sweet Alyssum is heavenly, and we can’t disagree. But, the reason we love it is because it helps us protect our lettuces and other leafy greens by attracting lots of beneficial insects, including syrphid flies that eat aphids and lay their eggs among the flowers.

  • Organic Syrian Oregano Seedling

    Space the seedlings 12″ apart in a bed with at least four hours of sun. Prune the plant after it reaches six inches in height to encourage it to bush out.

  • Organic Tall Green Purslane Seedlings

    Each pot includes one to three seedlings depending on the size of each.

  • Organic Tanya’s Pink Pod Bush Bean Seedling

    Two small seedlings or one large seedling per pot.

  • Organic Tatsoi Seedling

    Each pot includes one to three seedlings depending on the size of each.

    Tatsoi with its dark green spoon-shaped leaves on tender crisp white stalks is the epitome of tangy. We rarely eat a salad without it, and it is de rigeur in stir-frys. It is fun to watch it grow into a rosette of perky leaves that becomes such a beautiful element in the garden.
