Also, there are just 2 weeks left (but plenty of spots still available) before their early season discount ends on Spring and Summer seasonal CSA memberships.These seasonal options are a great way to negotiate the more expensive full season CSA and it's perfect for someone wanting to try a CSA out for the first time.

Are you looking for an unusual Valentine's Day gift, one that is calorie-free and smells delicious enough to eat? Give a beautiful basket of herb plants from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse in Hillsboro. These plants, each in its own 3 inch diameter pot, can be kept on a sunny windowsill and clipped throughout the winter to add flavor to your Valentine's cooking. Set the herb plants into the garden in spring, where they will thrive and are winter-hardy. Put together your own selection of plants from the listing on this week's market.  The baskets will also be available after Valentine's Day, with an Easter or spring theme.
