8th Annual plant sale

The Seed Savers worked hard to produce many varieties of really healthy  tomato and other edible plants.

Set-up started early with a stream of cars delivering plants to waiting volunteers who placed them according to varieties.

By 8.45 we were ready to open – chashiers and talliers in place, holding area staffed, membership table looking spiffy and coffee, muffins and oranges ready for the 20+ volunteers.

 

Sales were steady all morning and hardly any plants were left by noon.
