Gardening Season Arrives To The Triangle!

 DSC04661

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!

  1. You have inspired me to plant an herb garden… at those prices, you can’t go wrong! The farmer’s market looks like a lot of fun 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. You are so right. I’m willing to take a chance when I know it only cost me $1.50 to buy an herb. Trust me, I’ve killed my fair share of expensive plants in my time! I’ have had a lot of luck with herbs from the market though. As an added plus I have noticed that the deer don’t mess with my herbs much. It kills me when I buy a plant only to watch it vanish the next day due to our furry friends!

    Good luck with your garden Carrie!
