Greetings to our Friends & Fellow Gardeners,
Just a quick note to let you know that Fall Vegetable Starts are here. Most are ready now, and the ones that require cooler weather will be here soon. It’s time to plant those ‘cool-season’ crops, like kale, lettuce, chard, mustards, etc. so you will have lovely home-grown greens to harvest this fall and (with some protection) winter. We have vegetable starts in 2 ½” pots, and some in 10” fiber pots as well. Our selection includes:
Kale (Red Russian, White Russian, Tuscan/Lacinato, Winterbor, Dwf. Blue Curled)Broccoli Raab
Piracicaba ‘Calabrese-type’ Broccoli
Lettuce (Romaine, Butterhead, Leaf, Mesclun, Heirloom, etc.)
Swiss Chard (Ruby Red, Seafoam, Fordhook Giant, Bright Lights)
Collards (Georgia, Variegated)
Spinach (super-hardy Serbian Heirloom)
Bull’s Blood Beet Greens
Mustard Greens (Senposai, Mizspoona, Giant Indian Red)
whatever else I have forgotten…..
We also have LOTS of cool-season veggie seeds, as well as lots of discounted summer vegetable and flower seeds (25% off) that will give you a head-start next year.
Be sure to ask about getting some of our Row Cover Fabric to help keep your seedbeds from drying out and to provide some frost protection and insect protection for fall & winter crops. We carry two weights: lightweight ‘Seed Guard’ (1/2 oz.), and medium-heavy ‘Ensulate’ (1 ½ oz.).
Garlic and Shallots should arrive in the first week of September. We will have certified organic Inchelium Red soft-neck garlic, and 2 varieties of hard-neck garlic: Spanish Roja and German Red.
Look for our August 20/20 Sale Announcement in a few days (the sale will take place on Tuesday, 8/20) featuring an assortment of great plants and products at 20% discount for one day only), and our Fall Newsletter/Fall Sale Announcement in about a week
The weather has been very kind lately, with reasonable temperatures and some moisture – perfect planting weather! So we look forward to seeing you soon.
All the best,
Eve & Mikl Brawner & the wonderful staff at Harlequin’s Gardens
