Fedco Tree Sale – That Strawberry Room
After loading the trees into the truck we headed back inside to the strawberry room.
Near the inside door were sprouted gingers, sweet potato slips, catnip and rows of boxes with varieties of strawberries in white bags. We chose Earliglow, an earlier bearing variety, and Jewel a mid-season. Each bag of 50 plants cost $19.
We walked the perimeter of the room, enchanted by boxes of potted lettuces, Tiger Lillies, irises, peony trees, and herbs. I found a bunch of 3 Lavender Grosso crowns for $12. Couldn’t resist. They had Munstead, too.
Next, we headed up the hill to the Organic Growers Supply warehouse on the Bellsqueeze Road. Others were lined up to get their potato tuber orders. We climbed the stairs to the warehouse and bought a 50lb bag of gypsum ($!8) and a bag of organic Yukon Gold tubers for $9.25, which should produce about 25 pounds of potatoes this summer.
We headed back home joyfully with our treasures packed in the back of the truck.
THE FEDCO TREE SALE WILL CONTINUE ON FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MAY 6-7 FROM 9:00AM-3:00PM.
