I made my first trip of the year to the Raleigh State Farmer’s Market today and was happy to see loads of vendors selling vegetable plants like tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, corn, watermelon, lettuce, squash ect. They also had tons of herbs on hand and various spring and summer flowers. Not yet as many food (veggie vendors) yet, but I suspect that their numbers will grow in the upcoming weeks as more things come in season.
I found a guy selling herbs in 4-plant packs for $1.50. I picked up cilantro, oregano, english thyme, dill, and chives. I also bought a nice spearmint plant for $2.50. There was tons of basil and other herbs as well.
I’m looking forward to planting them all in my square foot garden later this week!
