Hurry up and wait
Not this time around.
I have to say, you either have the patience for seeds or you don't. I love the idea of it, but this year my stick-to-it-iveness just ain't in it for the long haul. So a trip to Union Square Market is on the cards to visit one of my all- time favourite stalls - Silver Heights Farm. They have everything you could want to plant in the edible department - small plug form. You name it... they have it! Collards, peas, leafy greens, broccoli, Asian greens... gosh the list is long.
I don't want to give too much away as it will spoil the sheer joy of perusing the goodies. This for me is a good compromise between sowing the seeds myself and buying produce fully grown.
I still get to nourish my green thumb and feed the family home-grown produce, which in some way we have all tended to along the way.
