Friends of the Farms announces vegetable starter plant sale

In a spur-of-the-moment development, Bainbridge Island's Friends of the Farms will be unloading a bevy of vegetable starts this weekend.

A vegetable starter plant sale will be from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14 at the Morales Farm.

Morales Farm is located at Lovgreen Road and Highway 305.

"Friends of the Farms is offering a variety of vegetable starters suitable for commercial farmers, P-patchers, schools, faith groups, businesses or private homes," said Wendy Tyner of Friends of the Farms.

"Donations of any amount will be accepted and all proceeds will support local farming," she said.

Friends of the Farms raced to organize the sale this week after receiving a phone call from a plant distributor in Oregon. The distributor is donating 50 vegetable starts to support the island's advocate for local farming.
