When does summer start? Astronomically, it starts this year on June 21 when the sun is directly over, at solar noon, The Tropic of Cancer, 23°26′14.2″ north of the Equator. Meteorologically, summer starts on June 1. Economically it starts on Memorial Day. The calendar date of the original Memorial Day, May 30, just happened to coincide with the star of meteorological summer. This year it looks like summer will start today, May 23 since frost threats are extremely unlikely at least until sometime in late September.
Today we will have someone to help you down at the stand from 10AM to 5PM.
PLANTS! TREES! SHRUBS! FLOWERS! EDIBLES!
Find trees, shrubs, and perennial and annual plants available in both the greenhouse to the left of the parking lot and in our new nursery space right to the left of the market building. Many plants we are selling are edible or produce edible fruit which makes them Bridge Card eligible. Besides the Bridge card and cash or check we are now accepting credit/debit cards.
We have realized that some may not own a large enough vehicle to transport large bushes or trees. Ask about local delivery!
