Just when you thought you couldn’t grow and you didn’t have a green thumb, learn these simple tips and tricks to succeed this year in your vegetable and herb gardens. It is not too late to start your garden! You can buy organic NonGMO starter plants today and eat off of them tomorrow! We bought ours at the Concord, NH Farmers Market. It is located next to the state house every Saturday from 8:30am-12:30pm. Co-ops are another good place to buy NonGmo starter plants and they are open daily. There are also many organic farms that sell starter plants.
The plants we are growing from seed are still very small. We bought starter plants so that we will have food to enjoy sooner. We bought many Kale plants from a country store near by that were ready to pick leaves off of that day. The store owner was able to tell us where the plants came from and how they were grown. This is important to ensure you are eating local sustainable and nontoxic food.
It is essential to buy NonGmo Plants. Locally grown starter plants are best. They can be found at
- Local Co-Ops
- Local Farmers Markets
- Country Stores (ask to be sure)
- Local Organic farms
The bigger the plants get the stronger they get which makes starter plants easier to maintain. All they need is space to grow, water, sunlight and a little protection from unwanted plant-eaters! Stay tuned into LOF blog for more gardening tips, tools and resources.
