Trees are budding and blooming, weeds are staking their ground, daffodils are popping up, and plant starts just arrived at the Ashland Food Co-op! It’s time to dust off your garden plans, figure out where the heck your gloves have wandered off to, and prep the soil in your beds. If you want to get a jump start on planting your garden for this spring, try some of the early starts we just got in from Fry Family Farm! The starts currently in stock are frost tolerant and cold hardy. As the weather warms up and we pass the last frost date in late May, the number of starts we carry will more than double, expanding to over 100 varieties.
Our relationship with Fry Family Farm goes back over 20 years. Steve and Suzi Fry are trailblazers for Ashland’s local, organic food movement. We have built a strong mutually beneficial relationship over the years, and proudly offer their Certified Organic plant starts, as well as seasonal produce. New starts are delivered twice a week, so our selection will continue to grow and be updated throughout the season.
