    I'm not sure what is available locally, or what is considered "agricultural", but employer's girlfriend (who had a microgreen farm) has been getting all kinds of discount offers, as many of them are expecting to have to throw lots of this stuff away.
    So I guess the next question is how to get them?

    Insane gardening community cracked me up. I have about seventy five African Violets and about 3/4 at any one time are blooming. People are stunned when they come to my house. Im always giving away plants and leaves. Irislilly can probably relate.

    I love African Violets, but Silvio loves them too, to eat, so none in our house.

    Microgreens come in their own containers usually, I think. Can you phone in a request and do a wise pick up on location ?

    I would love to have a healthy collection of African violets. I don’t do houseplants well at all, tho. DH had some for years, but they have since died We went to the African violet show last year at Missouri botanical Garden’s. The show was wonderful.

    not sure why it is sideways. I think I have the perfect conditions to propagate and grow them.

    Beautiful African Violets!

    On my way to get groceries, I noticed the parking lot at Lowe’s was half full of pallets still shrink-wrapped of soils and soil amendments.
    along with shelter at home orders, we have had significant rain for the last 3 weekends, all keeping people from buying garden supplies.
