Lubbock is warming up, the days are getting longer, and it’s time to start working on your garden. Many places around the Hub City are starting to sell seedlings, and Texas Tech isn’t missing out on the action.  

It’s a bit late in the season to start your own tomato or pepper plants from seeds in order to harvest by the end of the summer, so finding strong seedlings is a great way to start your garden. The TTU greenhouse grows a variety of plants including vegetables, herbs, landscaping plants, cacti, and more.  

This year’s sale will be on Saturday, May 6, 2023, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 

These sales are on a first come, first served basis, so it is important to get there early if there is a certain plant you have in mind.  

Texas is a great state to grow a salsa garden in, so this can be your chance to support the TTU garden while also getting your green thumb. All you need is a tomato plant, a hot pepper plant, and some cilantro to get your salsa garden on the right track.  

I’ve started my garden and am currently growing red and yellow Brandywine tomatoes, serranos, jalapeños, bell peppers, and tomatillos. I made my planters out of wood pallets and a bit of tender love and care. Filled them up with good soil, gathered my seedlings, and am on my way to grow a salsa garden for the third time.
