Farmers Market Finds

I've the good fortune to work near the Downtown Portland Farmers Market which recenty re-opened late last month.

My favourite part of the market are the plants offered throughout the growing season, and I've had quite a bit of luck finding plants I've been searching for awhile, or had absolutely no luck starting from seed.

Last week I brought home (on the bus, no less!) five Foxglove (digitalis purpurea), two white Bearded Tongue, three Creeping Phlox, a six pack of Oregon Giant Peas and lastly, a White Peshwar Poppy which once divided, turned into six individual starts. And all of this for about $35.00!
