First seedlings are ready

on Wed, 03/02/2016

2016-03-02-06.58a.pngMy first batch of seedlings is ready for planting! I've got some that I've set aside for myself that I'll be planting in the next few days. I have the following available for sale:

  • Sugar Snap Peas (10)
  • Oregon Giant Peas (17)
  • Burpeeana Early (12)
  • Dwarf Grey Sugar Peas (10)
  • Cascadia Peas (6)
  • Sweet Basil (6)
  • Kentucky Wonder Pole Beans (12)
  • Contender Beans (5)
  • Blue Lake Bush Beans (11)
  • Little Gem Romaine Lettuce (~60)
  • Chinese Cabbage (12)
  • Buttercrunch Lettuce (16)
  • Baby Bok Choi (12)

Beans, herbs, and peas are in plastic pots that are approximately 3.25" square. Greens are in smaller peat pots that you'll plant directly into the ground, as they have smaller root systems that are easily hit by transplant shock.

Plants are grown organically here locally in Gresham by me. I grow seedlings for myself every year and sell the extras to help cover the costs of my garden. There will be more seedlings over the next few months. 

Plants can be picked up in NE Gresham near the college. I may be able to meet you elsewhere if you're buying multiple plants. Discount for orders of 12+ plants.

Initial counts: beans, peas, lettuce, bok choi

on Tue, 02/16/2016

peas.jpgI went through and did some initial counts on what is growing and has been separated out into individual pots. Since the seeds for things like lettuce are so tiny, I always end up with multiple plants in each pot. I've been going through and transplanting them to bigger pots, one plant per spot, so that they have more room to grow. However, I'm only about a third of the way through that process, so these numbers for greens will increase once I finish that work. Beans and peas are already one to a spot since their seeds are significantly larger and easy to separate.

I'll work on getting better numbers over the next few days, as we'll be setting up my shelves and I'll have more room to put all the transplanted seedlings.

I will also likely end up doing a third round of these. I had to stop previously because I ran out of seeds, hence some of the odd numbers you'll see listed. Plus I have the scarlet runner beans that are supposed to be here later this week and some Italian beans.

When it comes to peas and beans, I usually plant at least a dozen, if not more, in my garden as most don't take up a lot of space. I think last year I ended up with something like 25 pea plants in my garden, which produced peas for months, not to mention the beautiful flowers.

Want to pre-order seedlings (aka starts)

transplanting-squash2.pngInterested in buying some seedlings for your garden? I'm currently doing pre-orders so that I can try to match what I am growing with the demand for certain items. Last year I had a lot of demand for certain items and ran out quickly, while other ones I ended up planting more than I had planned because there wasn't as much of a demand. Hopefully with pre-orders I can better match what people want. I can't guarantee that items will absolutely be available, though, as plants can die, I can get a bad batch of seeds, etc. However, I will do my best.

You can view the list of seeds I have here. If you're interested in putting in a pre-order, you can click here. The list should now include everything I will have for this year.
