I got an e-mail this morning from the folks at Riverside Nursery in Salem, who are fully stocked for the summer gardening season.
Apparently, owner Bruce Feldberg noticed the rising popularity if heirloom and specialty tomato varieties in gardening magazines and on food shows and local plates. As a result, he has not 10 or 20 varieties for sale at his store, but 90!!
Feldberg also has 40 different kinds of peppers, so head over and check those out, too.
So far, my vegetable garden consist of two cherry tomato seedlings in paper cups that I got from a co-worker. I’d also like to get a few Better Boy plants, but my plot isn’t quite ready for anything yet. I’ve also purchased some seeds for rainbow chard, yellow squash and zucchini.
I guess I’ve got some work to do!
