Transplant season is upon us. We've been busily hand-seeding, potting, and tending vegetables for your garden since late February and we can finally share them with you!
Saturdays in May we will have starts at the Clintonville Farmers' Market and Worthington Farmers' Market. We stock our retail partners (Clintonville Community Market, Bexley Natural Market, City Folk's Farm Shop, and Weiland's Market) this week so you can purchase organic herbs, tomatoes, and peppers throughout the city.
