It's Time to Plant Your Garden!

We are so happy to welcome Tracy Turner this Sunday at the Farmers Market! She will have vegetable and herb plants to help get you started with your garden, along with a variety of young plants like tomatoes, squash, melons, beans, peppers, cucumbers, and eggplant in 4" pots for $1 to $2. All of Tracy's plants are started and grown organically in her greenhouse in Ramona. She also plans to have a variety of Herbs in one gallon containers for $5 each at the Sunday Market. Tracy has been growing vegetables at her "you-pick" garden in Ramona for the past 10 years, where she helped to form the Ramona Garden Club. In 2009 she expanded plant sales to Wynola in a little garden shop.  Be sure to stop by and meet her, she's a great gal to know here in Julian.  Besides owning an operating Wynola Junction Antiques just down the road, , she was in the peace corps as an agriculture volunteer, her dad owns a local apple orchard, she's a really nice and humble person with a great sense of humor, and be SURE to ask her about her 2 babies that were just born on Friday--here's a picture of one of them below...See you tommorrow! 


Oh, and don't forget all of our other great weekly vendors, including: Baba Foods with Fresh Hummus, Fresh Hot Sambusas and Tamales, Nuts, Reusable Tupperware, Julian Bakery featuring Fresh Baked Breads and Apple Pie, and 6 or more produce tents full of locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables!
