After what seemed like 2 weeks of well above average hot/sunny weather here in lovely Vermont (which me and the plants appreciated very much) we now find ourselves back to more normal, cooler, temperatures. We also have found ourselves in a lower than average rainfall period as well. Not that I’m complaining about that. People don’t buy very many plants or garden in the pouring rain, so sunshine is my friend.
We have had our most successful opening weekend in our history. For this we thank all of you very much. We still have a large and great selection of beautiful hanging baskets, planters, color bowls and individual flowers to choose from. The cooler veggie plants such as kale, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, onions and leeks are still in good supply. We now have cherry tomatoes ready to go and soon we’ll have a wide variety of tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cukes, zukes, summer & winter squash ready also.
We are at Farmers Market every Saturday from 9-2, Grace Church on Sunday mornings from 10-1, and at the farm most weekdays, though it is strongly suggested that you CALL AHEAD (282-8420) before coming out. We have lives which must be lived and obligations and appointments away from the farm daily. Please call ahead to avoid unnesessary frustration on your part.
We are primarilly small local growers, not a retail garden center per-se. Most often we are a staff of ONE, and if we have a doctors appointment, or a child who needs a ride home from school we aren’t at the farm for an indetermined period of time during the day. We hope that you will understand this reality of our lives.
In our defense, we really do have gorgeous plants and it’s worth the little extra effort to make an appointment ahead of time. Just think how special you’ll feel being treated like a VIP.
Peace and good gardening,
