Plants for the Greenhouse – Round 1

Botanical Plate for Caper Bush


[dropcap1]W[/dropcap1]e are back. After a longer than anticipated hiatus that involved lots of drywall dust and late nights, getting to the home stretch with the restaurant. However, that doesn’t mean that we haven’t been on plant patrol! We have continued to order cool seeds and plant for the greenhouse and the patio. The greenhouse should be in place in the next week or so and then we can bring you some live shots of it coming together. In the meantime we thought we would share some of our cool finds arriving in a few days from Richter’s. They are another great online resource for herbs in particular, seeds & plants.

Richter’s is a nursery located in Canada, so you really want to plan ahead and ensure that you only need to place one order. This is our first time ordering from them as well so we will see what condition the plants are in when they arrive, but they have some great varieties we haven’t found elsewhere. They offer both organic and regular seeds and plants and have a really cool section called Seed Zoo, which showcases heirloom varieties of rare legumes, fruits and veggies from locales in Italy, Africa and other places. We are looking into the Italian legumes a little more to see how they might fare in Ohio River Valley soil at Cakeridge (our chefs farm). (more…)
