All about the edibles this week

It should be a nice week to be outside – getting ready for the spring.

We should be getting our bigger shipment of tomatoes in by sometime this coming week. We have some now but should have more soon. Come on in to see or just call us at (520) 575-0995 to see if they’ve come in.

We’re getting ready for all things edible! Here’s a list just to name a few: blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, apples, peaches, plums, figs, strawberries, artichokes, onions and the aforementioned tomatoes. And, look for seeds for spring peas, beans, melons, squash…of course don’t forget the amendments! We have the best available to give your plants and seeds the most comfortable resting – and growing – place.

Time to learn about Citrus, come to our seminar

It’s been a great winter. Heck, it’s felt more like spring but we don’t want to jinx it, either.
But we also want to prepare you for what’s ahead. So, there’s no time like Feb. 18 to teach you or re-inform you about growing citrus in the Tucson climate.
That’s why we are having our annual Citrus Seminar beginning at 10:30 a.m. to noon. It’s a Saturday so come on in and sit and listen to what one of our many resident experts have to say about growing and caring for citrus plants. Felicia Chapman is our girl on this one. You’ll love her easy-going, informative style when it comes to discussing citrus.
There’s a lot to know about citrus in the desert: what varieties thrive in the desert, pruning and feeding, pest control and container growing. And, so much more.
If you haven’t fed your citrus this year, please do. The time is approaching. Remember, it’s Valentine’s Day, Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend. But, Felicia will remind you when you’re here.
When it’s all over we’ll have citrus-tasting from the many varieties we have here in the store.
