Come on down to the 326 Community Market! It's Ginger Time!


No, not THAT Ginger!

I know, it's not as exciting, but I've now got a wonderfully spicy Thai ginger in stock, as well as shampoo ginger (makes a great hand lotion and hair treatment!) and cardamom ginger (not the type that makes pods - this is a type with smokey, savory leaves that are used like bay in cooking).

Soon I'll also have some lovely shell gingers. Though they're often planted as ornamentals, they smell incredible and make a wonderfully soothing tea.


Come on down to the 326 Market in Ocala today and see what else I have. There's a lot going on in the nursery and I'm finding more rare edibles each week.

My wonderful selections include:

BLUEBERRIES: $15.00

APPLES (Anna, Dorsett, Tropic Sweet) $20.00 

PEARS (Pineapple pears are BACK in stock!) $20.00

POMEGRANATES (Various) $20.00

FIGS (Various) $20.00

MULBERRIES (Black and Everbearing) $20.00

JAPANESE PERSIMMONS (Various non-astringent) $29.00

MUSCADINE GRAPES (Black and Green) $9.00

THORNLESS BLACKBERRIES $9.00

BABY MORINGA TREES $8.00

CHINESE GREEN TEA $8.00

MINT $2.00

CUBAN OREGANO $2.00

Coming soon: goji berries, garlic chives, shell ginger, native milkweed and coffee!

The 326 Community Market runs every Thursday from 3 - 7PM and is really easy to find.

Google map is here. Their Facebook page is here (with lots more photos and info):

My prices are good and my gardening advice is free.

Beyond what I carry, there are also folks selling melt-in-your-mouth Florida peaches, goat milk cheese and soap, handcrafts, recycled pallet wood furniture, fresh lemonade, delicious ice cream (from actual hand-milked cows), dolls and lovely homemade greeting cards, crafts, vegetables, baked goods, homemade jams and jellies (really good), local raw honey, homemade birdhouses and more.

It's a great group of people and very friendly... the way a local market should be.

Come on down!

What kind of soil mix do you use for your plants? I've tried the Mel's mix square foot gardening stuff and got root rot on my 8 inch tall papaya seedlings :-( I'm going to try the ones on this page (http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/contain/msg0309313324323.html?144). Yours might be different since you don't expect yours to stay in pots long-term. Thanks!

I've sworn off Mel's Mix forever after some experimentation in multiple beds and pots.

You need something light and airy. Light compost or potting soil with some pine bark and perlite drains nicely. I'm still experimenting, but I definitely like potting soil with lots of air in it. I've also had root rot with heavier soils.
