The GRP fall crop distribution is next week! So, this weekend would be a great time to make room for more cold weather seeds and broccoli, fennel, collard, scallion, kale, kohlrabi, radicchio or napa cabbage transplants. Haven't joined the GRP yet? It's never too late! Visit to enroll today.

Plum Street Market Garden isn't just a clever name.
