|Just a portion of what you will find at the Tilth sale|
If you live in the Seattle area and grow things to eat - then you will regret missing the Tilth Edible Plant Sale this weekend. You will find more tomato plants than you will know what to do with - all great varieties for the region. You will also find dozens of varieties of lettuces, onions, squash and brassicas (including the purple peacock kale-broccoli mix that I have been lusting for!).
|Seattle Youth Garden Works will be there with their hardworking youth|
|If you don't want to browse, pre-packs are available, such as Mothers Day Pack or Beginner's Vegetable Garden|
Where I really go nuts is the edible flower and herb section. Herbs that you have never seen sold anywhere else will entice you to spend more money than you had planned. I volunteered to set up the dozens and dozens of tables for the sale last night and came home with such gems as ginger-mint, lemon verbena, Australian bush mint (smells like a hippie's house... in a good way), sweet cicely and scented geraniums. I have two half barrels at on the patio that will soon be overflowing with smells, leaves, vines and flowers.
