Buy a Seedling or Plant Your Own
Get Your Hands Dirty With Moishe House West Hartford!
In prepping for our garden though, we started way too many seedlings in our greenhouse! We've been offered a second garden on Dover Road to plant the rest of our seedlings, but there's more space than we need and we can't maintain all of these plots on our own. After a lot of discussion, we came up with two solutions:
- We will be offering 3 ft x 3 ft plots (or larger, by request) FOR FREE at the Dover Road garden on a first-come-first-served basis. You will be responsible for the maintenance of your plot and therefore anything you grow in your plot is yours to keep. We do however encourage everyone to leave a tithe behind to be donated to the JFS Food Pantry.
- If you don't feel like starting your plants from scratch, we will be selling our extra seedlings for $1 each. This is a great deal, because we will show you how to sustainably grow and pick your produce so that one seedling will yield consistently throughout the season.
- Tomatoes (Brandywine, Rose, Moskvich, Five Star Grape, Matt's Wild Cherry, Golden Sweet)
- Peppers (Jalafuego, Hot Paper Lantern, Ace Sweet Bell)
- Eggplant (Galine)
- Cucumbers (Diva, Jade)
