The fabulous wall of seeds at Naomi's
The other day I was visiting a friend and she started telling me about this nursery that had recently moved into her neighborhood. She got more and more excited as she described it to me and next thing I know, we're in her car on our way to Naomi's Organic Farm Supply. It really IS about the cutest garden store I've ever seen, and Portland has its fair share of great ones.
Naomi and friends
This place has personality and is totally approachable (look at their fun, homemade signage and displays!) but it's also well stocked for the more seasoned gardener who needs very specific soil amendments, hard-to-find seeds, chickens and animal feed, and books.
They carry the wonderful Oregon-based Adaptive Seeds line from which I selected a packet of the mysterious Buddha's Hand Cosmos. Isn't she stunning?!
They also sell plants, a wonderful selection of edibles and otherwise. I will definitely be doing a lot of shopping here.
