Press Street Gardens Plant Sale continues

We’ve got 25 varieties of tomatoes, and not a single one is run-of-the-mill! If you miss our nighttime plant sale on Saturday the 9th, you can still get great melons, cucumbers, peppers, flowers, herbs, medicinals, native plants, cacti and more on Sunday morning. We accept cash and plastic (and maybe even really cool barter).
