HERBS – Frost hit our scented geraniums, but with a few survivors. Only ROSEMARY & BAY right now.
GREENS –With the frost, comes the slowing of the greens. It’s just that time of year; can’t fill large orders. Frills Bunches – Green & Scarlet, mixed mustards & chard are all a bit limited for this week. Same for all BGG Mixes. Minutina is still doing well.
