Any hidden gems for culinary gardening?

emannths | Apr 28, 201407:31 AM     31

I'm curious if anyone's got any places they seek out for buying herbs and vegetable plants around here. I'm interested in both interesting, varied selections and value.

For example, Ricky's in Union Sq Somerville sells lots of vegetable seedlings in 6pks for just a couple bucks (as opposed to something like $3 each in pint containers at Home Depot, etc). They also have parsley similarly priced parsley, so you can get 6/$2-3.

Normally we just do everything from seed, but we ran out of time this spring.
