My Haul from the Annual Master Gardener Plant Sale ~ May 2009

Saturday morning I was up and out of the house by 5:45, picked up my mom and was standing in line at UNCE’s parking lot by 6:15 am. There were only 4 people in front of us…while waiting we had a great chat with one of the Master Gardener’s, Rachael. She’s been in charge of the greenhouse on Valley Road for the last six years.

Tomatoes seem to be the one thing that everyone races for…some people were down-right rude. Big sigh. But I got my ‘maters, and more, without hitting someone over the head with my box. 🙂

All my wee babies are out on the back patio hardening themselves…as they were just taken from the greenhouse on Friday. I’ll plant them by this coming Saturday, if not a bit sooner.




Plants that I bought:

2 Homemade Pickles Cucumber
1 Spacemaster Cucumber
1 Lemon Cucumber
2 Hungarian Stuffing Peppers
1 Acorn Squash
1 Serrano Pepper
1 Delicata Squash
2 Jalapeno Peppers
2 Chamomile, German
4 Tomatillo Heirloom
1 Greek Oregano
2 Brandywine Heirloom Tomato
1 Silvery Fir Tree Heirloom Tomato
2 Red Siberian Heirloom Tomato
1 Sage
1 Parsley
1 Rosemary
1 Fennel Bronze
1 Feverfew
2 American Legion Poppy

Those will be added to the broccoli, cabbage, brussels spouts, beets, carrots, radishes, garlic, red & yellow onions, grey squash, hearts of gold cantaloupe, dill, rosemary, lemon thyme, thyme, sweet basil, oregano, Italian parsley that are already planted.

Still needed are bush bean, sweet white corn, and pumpkin seeds.

****** UPDATE: ******I forgot to add that Rachael said they get a lot of their seeds from Botanical Interests, Inc. in Colorado. They’re great seeds for our altitude here in Northern Nevada.

    Some people can suck the fun out of an event by being poopy. Not cool!

    I would kill to see your garden with my own eyes, and nose, and hands lol.
