Raised Bed Gardening and Eating Well in Austin, Texas

Updated Vegetable, Herb and Ornamental Transplant Sales this Weekend, March 3rd, 2012 February 29, 2012

Early March is the perfect time to get your Spring vegetables and herbs in the ground, and there are several big sales coming up.  My favorite, The Sunshine Community Garden Spring Plant Sale is a big one.  Always the first Saturday in March, so this year it will be on March 3, 2012, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  This is more than a sale, it is a Festival with lots of vendors and things for the kiddos.  This sale has more heirloom varieties of vegetables, including many hard to find tomatoes and peppers, than you are likely to find at area nurseries.   Many of the transplants are donated by Gabriel Valley Farms, and some by local gardeners at the community garden.  Get there early, there will be folks lining up before 8:00 to get first dibs on the plants, and they usually sell out.

Another great place to buy your Spring transplants is Johnson’s Backyard Garden.  Also on March 3, 2011 from 10:00 to 1:00 at the farm.  You can also order online for pick up at the farm.  Johnson’s has a wide variety of heirloom tomatoes and peppers as well.  Johnson’s also has a limited variety of transplants at each of the Farmer’s Markets.

Zilker Botanical Gardens will also hoast the Austin Organic Gardeners Plant Sale on March 3, from 9:00 to 2:00.  This sale includes vegetables, herbs and ornamentals as well.

Springdale Farm will have tomato transplants for sale at the farmstand on Saturday, from 9:00 to 1:00.   755 Springdale Road.  Get your just picked veggies for the week, and transplants to grow your own.
