Best Instant Garden

It’s a good thing the supply chain appears to be holding up, because if we had to feed ourselves from what we’ve been able to grow in our garden, we’d be pretty hungry. Our seeds never sprouted. Our cucumbers never cucumbered and our corn never corned. But then we discovered Vilardi Gardens, a stop at local farmers markets that will deliver to your door. We got online and loaded our cart with tomato, pepper, eggplant and zucchini “starts.” Vilardi does a lot of the hard work for you, getting your plants up and running – but then it’s up to you to make the magic – and the veggies. Our Vilardi zucchini went wild, and the tomato plants shot up overnight. We might not be able to live off our garden, but we’re pretty sure we’ll get a nice salad or two out of it, and plenty of enjoyment from watching it grow.
