Welcome to the Neighborhood: Egg|Plant Urban Farm Supply

Our very good family friends Audrey Matson and Bob Lies are opening an urban homesteading store called Egg|Plant on Selby Avenue 1 block east of Fairview (about 4 blocks west of Snelling).

Their official opening is tomorrow, April 1 (no fooling!), and they're all stocked up with an amazing selection of gardening supplies, heritage seeds, plants, composters, planters, implements, books, and backyard chicken supplies. Audrey knows her stuff, too--she's the one who turned us on to raising chickens a couple of years ago.

It's been really fun watching Bob and Audrey plan Egg|Plant and make it a reality.

So, before you put in your garden in this year, stop in and check out Egg|Plant. We think it's destined to be another great independent store that makes St. Paul such a great place to live!

Above, a few preview photos of Egg|Plant as Audrey and Bob and their kids (and a few of ours) prepare for opening day.
