As temperatures finally grow warmer and the rains start to move out of the area, cabin fever gives way to at last getting outside to enjoy the spring sunshine. What better way to do so than by planting a garden that offers rewards all summer long?
Heirloom Solutions, part of the Heirloom Market and Café, has countless started plants ready to go into the ground immediately. From vegetables to prairie plants, they have everything a gardener could look for. Vegetable offerings include broccoli, cauliflower, kale, lettuce, cabbage, and more! All are the heirloom varieties prized by experienced gardeners for their stronger, fuller flavors and biogenetic diversity as well as the ability to plant seeds from this year to start next year’s garden without buying more of the same plant. “We are extremely excited to have so many beautiful varieties of heirloom plants available for our customers. This year we had great germination from all of our staple plants and even great germination from our amazing new varieties. We have a bigger selection of herbs, tomatoes and peppers,” says Marci Minnick-Heard, the plant specialist at the Heirloom Market and Café.
New this weekend are tomatoes, a particular favorite for those who find vine-ripened, home grown vegetables greatly preferable to those purchased at the supermarket. Heloom Solutions offers many different heirloom varieties from which to choose in order to fulfill anyone’s particular tomato craving. “If you are into heirloom tomatoes, we have Italian Romas, Hungarian Hearts, Amish Paste and many more tomato varieties ready for you to pick up now,” says Minnick-Heard. Pick from four different varieties of cherry tomatoes including chocolate cherry and emerald green cherry tomatoes or go more traditional with a gold medal tomato plant. Also available are many types of green, pink, white, red, pear, and roma tomatoes. More obscure varieties can be obtained as well, such as Kellogg’s Breakfast Tomatoes.
Since most tomato plants favor areas with plenty of sunshine, planting a tomato garden is the perfect excuse to get out in the sun and get this spring’s first sunburn. Not only does this provide the opportunity to get outside and enjoy the weather now, fresh tomatoes will be ripening and ready for delicious and healthy meals and snacks all summer long.
The sale is open from 9am-8pm Monday through Saturday and 11am-4pm on Sunday.
