Days are getting longer and the sun is shining brighter.  We are finalizing our garden plan and now it’s time to start pulling out our planters from the greenhouse nursery and start filling them with soil and seeds for early spring harvest on some vegetables and definitely early ripening of those longer fruits and vegetables that take longer to ripen.  Why wait until late August and September when our goal is to have ripe tomatoes in late June and early July.

At Bahrstead’s we are thinking ahead ahead and have the luxury of utilizing our building to give our seedlings a head start.  Once we get them going, we will be moving them out to our hoop houses when the temperatures stay above 40 deg F.  Below are a few places to consider for finding seeds for plants you'd enjoy.
