Fertilizer Friday - Harvesting for Market

Nasturtium flowers

Golden Chard

 Going to the Oakland County Market tomorrow and went to the greenhouse and harvested a boatload of flowers and greens. I'll have spinach, baby lettuces with herbs, parsley, rosemary and golden chard. Wonder if I'll be eating lots of vegetables this week with the leftovers from the market...

The packages will sell for 2-3 dollars each with volume discounts for multiple packages. Also am bringing some small houseplants I potted into 6" pots, herb plants that are ready - cat grass, catnip, cilantro, thyme and oregano, and some dried flowers. This market is also a flea market so I will probably offer some of my garden books and my brother's abstract watercolors. Hoping it will go well. If not I will bring my knitting.

Pam and I had a big day Thursday. We got all of the Raker's plugs potted up - 537 plants into 4" and a few one gallons. The new shelves have filled up - bought five more 4 tier shelves - and the greenhouse is almost packed. Help! The Walter's shipment comes in this next week and I have no idea where I am going to put it!
Linking to Tootsie Time this week for Fertilizer Friday. This is a blog that gathers links from bloggers around the world to show off and flaunt their flowers each and every Friday. Check some of the other blogs out!
