Plant Sale- Get Ready for Fall

Fall is one of the best times to plant.  The weather is cooling down, but still warm enough not to freeze, we've had some rain to help out our parched summer soil, and the quiet dormancy of winter allows plants to build up the energy and roots to burst forth in the spring.  Everything about fall planting is good for plants.  So come get some!
