|Thinking About That 'Mater Sandwich!|
Homegrown tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes
What'd life be without homegrown tomatoes?
Only two things that money can't buy
That's true love & homegrown tomatoes.
- Song by Guy Clark
It's warm and time to plant your summer garden! Our tables are full of yummy veggie transplants.
Did You Know? Most of Reems Creek Nursery’s vegetables are grown on our Propagation Farm in the Reems Creek Valley. We grow them sustainably - using organic fertilizers and organic pest control (if needed).
We’re growing 35 tomato varieties, 11 sweet pepper varieties, 16 hot pepper varieties, and lots of other warm season veggies like summer & winter squash, cucumbers, melons, and more! Click the link and scroll down for our Warm Season Veggie List – all varieties are not available at the same time but will be brought in to the Garden Center when ready.
Plants like squash will be producing edible squashes very quickly!
Organic Fertilizers…we have lots of great choices. You’ll find them in our lower Garden Shop!
- Tomato Cages: Use a heavier duty cage for tomatoes, and lighter duty cages for peppers and eggplant.
- Mix a good handful of Daddy Pete’s Kickin’ Chicken into the soil in each planting hole.
- Follow up with a liquid feeding of Neptune’s Harvest Fish & Seaweed Fertilizer.
- Veggies require 1 inch of water per week. Use a rain gauge to monitor rain amounts and water accordingly. Moisture extremes can lead to blossom end rot on tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant.
P.S. Get your kids excited about gardening too! There's magic in eating food grown in your own garden and connecting the dots about where food comes from. Let them plant some easy seeds like beans or squash and watch their eyes light up when they sprout and grow.

Two Houseplant Shipments this week!
We hope to have one out by Friday and the other shipment out by Saturday.
Surround yourself with soothing green - indoors and out! Houseplants add that tropical vibe just in time for summer gatherings. Shipment includes more porch ferns too.
If you are styling your patio or deck, remember that tropicals thrive in bright indirect light, Direct sun can burn their leaves...so arrange your plants with an eye toward their light requirements. Looking for a little style inspiration? Check out @hiltoncarter on Instagram.
|From Wilma: Late spring is a time of transition in our landscapes and gardens. Most spring-flowering plants have finished blooming and there can be a lull in color until summer annuals and perennials “kick in”. Colorful hanging baskets, pre-made container gardens, roses, and some perennials can help with this transition.|
Cool-season veggies aren’t fond of warmer temperatures and may be beginning to look tired, however, summer veggies and herbs love it and now is the optimal time to plant them. Houseplants can transition to semi-shady outside locations. Now is a good time to repot them if needed.
There are lots of interesting foliage textures and many shades of green at this time. Foliage on the mountainsides seems extra “lush” this year. I love walking through the conifer displays at the Garden Center and observing the emerging cones and soft new growth on them.
Wilma Penland is the co-founder of Reems Creek Nursery and our horticultural mentor.

|Memorial Day Observance in Weaverville|
|The Town of Weaverville will have a Memorial Day Observance on Monday, May 30th at 11AM at Lake Louise.|
Following the observance the Dry Ridge Museum in the Community Center will be open with a display of uniforms, letters, artifacts, etc. from local men (including Bill Penland) and women who served in the military. While stationed in France in WW1 Bill’s grandfather, D.E.Penland, was walking when he saw a small statue partially hidden in the dirt off to the side. He stopped and picked it up and when he did there was an explosion where he would have been had he continued walking. He felt it saved his life and brought it home with him after the war. This statue is on display at the museum.
