The Minneapolis Farmers Market at
Plants. If you have not gotten your green thumb out and planted something yet this spring, now is the time to do it. The Minneapolis Farmers Market has several local growers to choose from selling a diverse array of seedlings, decorative plants, and flowers. (You can see the full vendor list by clicking: Plants & Cut Flowers.) There were just too many lush green things to choose from, and I’m not particularly good at keeping plants alive. I’m also on a limited budget.
My hot-tooth, if there is such a thing, won out. I bought a Thai Dragon pepper plant that will mature in 70 days. The soil card says, “…fruits are 8 times hotter than standard jalapenos...” It already has a few green peppers, but they will need to turn red before use. Being a novice at keeping plants alive, I read the instructions thoroughly. Care: “Full Sun,” check; “keep well-watered,” check. Well, if that is it, I’m set to have a few hot meals ahead me.
