Join us in creating a more sustainable Phoenix!
I am in love with the new Urban Farm Nursery that just opened at 7120 N. 12th St, just north of Glendale in Phoenix. They specialize in edible crops for our urban gardens and carry a wide selection of season appropriate transplants. They are currently open on Fridays & Saturdays from 8:30am - 5:30pm and Sundays from 10am - 5pm, and during the week when classes are scheduled. For permies looking for locally owned nurseries in central Phoenix you may want to check them out!
Me too please!
thanks so much!
please post it for all of us. thanks.
I can't wait to see what you have available!!! Thanks for the info.
great idea Catherine! I know I am loving my great luck with Nasturtium and Marigolds.... now working on expanding. Always wondering about eating leaves and flowers of the varied veggies growing.
Some leaves are edible too. Nasturtiums for instance. I did an external blog on using the leaves as a substitute for grape leaves in my take on Dolma. Turned out great.
yep love those leaves... but always used small ones. Dolma? I am there!
Please direct me to your blog.As always, thanks.
wondering how much damage and benefit all that cold weather and cold temps did. I finally got frost cloth on yesterday around 4pm! And more to come today?
Linda, we had hail here about a half an hour ago, but it was short lived. I just put on a note on the Hail post I did here on the site. Storm looks to be moving in a northerly pattern right now.
Here is the post on the dolma - gosh it turned out great. Let me know if you try it and how it turns out. Be sure to catch my note about making sure they are tight in the pan or they come apart.
Catherine, I have never seen my leaves so big that I thought I could do this... but will have to try. THanks for posting the link.
Thanks for the suggestion, Catherine. Couldn't agree more! Yes, we do have plans to carry edible flower transplants and seeds in season. I was tempted to bring in some of them this season (transplants) but could only find conventionally grown, and didn't want folks to think they could just pop those in their mouths as they could have been sprayed. So it is wonderful to hear Suzanne will start growing some for us!
Please keep the suggestions coming, especially on varieties (and sources for them) that you have had success with. Do you have some books we might carry in the nursery? Can we post your edible flower list in our resource area?
Heather I missed this note from you. Yes I have books, friend me so I can email you. And yes you can certainly post the list in your resource area.
Heather, do you have a website? Greg's website doesn't seem to have a separate section for the nursery & the website seems like its having some trouble with coding or something?
and will you still have toms on sunday?
