Ballard Sprouts plant give-away Saturday May 20, 2017

This plant giveaway is for those who are planting giving gardens for food banks and meal kitchens. You should have received an email about this; most of the plants will be at the greenhouse in Ballard. Some will be at the Providence Regina House Food Bank (in South Park) during its regular hours (9-noon). The plants include warmer weather starts such as beans and squash and some tomatoes. A heat-tolerant lettuce Jericho will also be available.

2017’s STARTS seeded by Sprouts volunteers

Volunteers have seeded lettuce, chard, tomatoes, peppers, kale and Asian greens for distribution to Seattle Giving Gardeners. Later there’ll be summer squash and cucumbers. When will these be ready to distribute? It depends upon the weather: our greenhouses are passive greenhouses but cozy, even on our snowy days. We’ll send a notice through the city of Seattle’s listserve when they’re ready. Hint: perhaps late March or early April for the cooler weather crops; May for warmer weather crops. And THANK YOU to the volunteers who make this happen every Spring.
