Spring Plant Sale

Hillbilly Tomatoes waiting for a home !  Beautiful red, pink beefsteak streaked with yellow and orange.  This is just one of the many choices of heirloom tomatoes available.  Also there are hot and sweet peppers.  Jimmy Nardello, Yummy, and Alma Paprika are some of my favorites. 
The Spring Sale begins May 9th and lasts for the month. 
Everybody expects tomatoes, eggplants and peppers from the Greenhouse but this year we also have a great assortment of flowers and hanging baskets.  The members have been busy starting the tiny seeds and transplanting them into their pots where they wait for their final home.  On Wednesdays, the volunteers make soup and salad for lunch and share their plant knowledge.
