Planting Boxes

Garden in a Box

Fresh veggie and flower starts, ready to go in the ground this Spring!

We have six types of boxes this year, and they're ready to order! Check out our newest box, Thomas Jefferson's' Vegetable Garden.

In addition to our popular Cutting Garden and Patio Gardens, we also have a Children's Garden of small, easy-to-grow vegetables, an Eating the Rainbow garden of brightly-colored, oh-so-heathy vegetables, and garden of all heirloom varieties.

 

The gardens come in a reusable wooden tray; they'll be fully hardened-off and ready to put in your prepared bed. Each box comes with with planting, care and feeding, and harvesting of your plants, along with plastic label tags. 

How Does it Work?

  • Order your box(es) in advance at the links below.

  • We'll notify of a pick-up/delivery time about two weeks before the plants are ready to go home. 

  • Pick up your flat of plants at the farm, or we can deliver to your door. Sorry, we can't ship these plants; they're too delicate to survive the trip. 

Important note: The actual plants you will receive MAY vary, depending on germination and growth rates of the plants we've picked out. 

Another important note: Square may tell you that the boxes will be available right away, but they'll actually be available in late April (hardened off and ready to go straight in the ground!)

Simply put, eating the rainbow involves eating fruits and vegetables of different colors every day. Plants contain different pigments, or phytonutrients, which give them their color. Different-colored plants are linked to higher levels of specific nutrients and health benefits. While eating more vegetables and fruit is always a good idea, focusing on eating a variety of colors will increase your intake of different nutrients to benefit various areas of your health.. 

 

Plants in the set may include: Tricolor mix bean, Dragon Purple carrot, Elegance greens mix, Clementine caultiflower, Cherokee Purple tomato, Brandywine tomato, Rainbow carrots, Zephyr summer squash, Green zebra tomato, Louisiana long green eggplant, Dancer or Listada de gandia eggplant, Three root grex beet mix, Amy's Apricot Mix cherry tomato, Lunchbox peppers, and green and purple kale.
