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.
