Well, I went to the farmer's market today to get veggie plants and somehow came home without marigolds, peas, corn, and squash. they had them there, I just somehow ended up forgetting them in my frenzy to get tomatoes, peppers, watermelon, and zucchini.

I don't esp. want to head back tomorrow since we live all the way up in morrisville. anyone know of a garden center/nursery closer that has thee veggies? I went to the one on 55 between high house and beaver creek yesterday and didn't see these specific plants.

Is this implying you have something against Lowes/etc?

There is a Lowes off of Chapel Hill Blvd and Cary Blvd - a little ways down the road but closer. They likely have all of those (watermelon maybe not) - call and ask

I don't think you can buy peas or corn plants anywhere. Those really need to be direct sowed in the ground. Peas grow very fast like weeds anyway. You should have no problem fidning squash seedlings at big box stores.

That's funny!

I've never seen corn and peas sold as seedlings before. Peas are really easy to grow from seeds. Just drop a few seeds in the ground and they will germinate by the end of the week! I've never grown corn before. I was always under the impression you needed to grow a lot of it so it could pollenate. I could be totally wrong though.

Good luck!

Ace Hardware in Apex (the one on 55). What they don't have, they can help you start from seed yourself. They've been there forever, so can give you advice on getting good results in local conditions.

What a DUH moment I had. You could have gone (or still go) to Gertie's off of 540 and Leesville. She has all of the things you mention. Very quaint small little place but nice. d'oh!
