Thank you for supporting Sound Pine Farm and Milkweed Farm by purchasing seedlings through our online sale! Our pre-orders are now closed.
Below you’ll find details regarding seedling pick-up during the weekend of May 22nd and 23rd, and a link where you can sign up for a time slot to pick up your seedlings using our appointment calendar.
⚘ Please pick up your order at Milkweed Farm, 63 Gott Lane, Brunswick. The farm is located on a single-lane dirt road off of Woodside Road. Make your way to the fork at the end of Gott Lane and take the left driveway. The pick-up location will be located in front of the barn. Please drive slowly, as there are kids, neighbors, and animals around!
⚘ Follow the signs to pick up your seedlings, and remember to practice social distancing guidelines. We ask that you send someone in your place if you are feeling at all sick, wear a mask, and maintain six feet of distance from others.
⚘ We will have six people picking up their orders during each 30 minute time slot. While we wish we could chat with you all, please be mindful of how many folks will be picking up orders each day, and try to keep your visit as brief as possible. Thanks!
⚘ Please bring boxes or trays to take your plants home with you. You will have your own table to transfer your plants from our crates to your boxes.
⚘ If for any reason, one of your seedlings is not available, we will give you a full refund, paid in cash at the time you pick-up. If we can, we’ll also throw in a bonus! Thanks for understanding that these are living beings and things happen!
⚘ Lucretia of Milkweed will happily take back any plastic pots your seedlings were in. Please return them to Milkweed Farm, where there will be a labelled receptacle in front of the barn.
⚘ Never got an invoice? They often end up in the ‘spam’ folder, but let us know if you can’t find it there and we’ll send another.
And some planting info…
⚘ Many of the seedlings will be in biodegradable Jiffypots, which we recommend ripping gently off your seedlings for planting. Plants in Jiffy pots can dry out easily, so keep this in mind while you harden off your plants.
⚘ Before planting, it’s best to ‘harden off’ seedlings– a process of introducing them to outdoor conditions gradually. We have already started this process! Different crops can handle different low temperatures, and you may need to wait to plant some of them until nighttime lows are higher. Here is a guide to help you determine when it’s safe to put plants in the ground. Until then, keep them outside where they can easily be moved to an indoor/ more sheltered location when it’s too cold. Peppers, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, and basil are particularly sensitive! Last year a June 1st frost got some of these “hot crops” unawares!
Thanks and happy gardening!
