- When planting your seedlings, you are encouraged to water, then water, then water some more before planting.
- Although I have tried to minimize disposable plastic use on the farm, there are currently no truly biodegradable or compostable pots that really work well. I continue to happily take back any gently used SQUARE plastic pots in the 2-6" size range. A few plant species really do not like their roots disturbed and will arrive in "Fertil" pots pots which are organic growing approved wood pulp, and are designed to be directly plantable.
- All our plants are grown with love, and our seeds are from sources that have taken the safe-seed pledge or are otherwise reliable. However, if harvesting for culinary or medicinal purposes it is still YOUR responsibility to ensure proper identification as other adventurous seeds and weed seeds CAN and DO make their way into potting soil, neighboring seedling flats and pots, and garden beds.
