How Does Your Garden Grow?

With silver bells, and cockle shells, And pretty maids all in a row?

Ha, not be contrary, but my garden doesn’t look like that. Sure maybe I could manage the silver bells and depending on the price, the cockle shells are doable. But the maids, let alone pretty, and then getting them to line up, it’s not going to happen.

Even if you don’t have a fairy tale/nursery rhyme garden, you can get started on one this weekend. The weather is suppose to oblige and SunGold has tomato starts for your garden and rhubarb for your now, as the crop comes in prices will be dropping.

If you are more container inclined, Blue Heron and Westwind Gardens have herb starts. Or for a little more variety

Gardening At Day

there are veg starts available at Osmogaia- they are according to our crack staff, it is, “truly beautiful and fantastic produce!”. So by the laws of transference, your produce will be beautiful and fantastic too.

If it will be nice enough to garden, it will be nice enough to grill. Stop by Highland Oak along with their pastured beef, they will be offering eggs on sale – 2 doz for $10 this weekend. Saturday night dinner, Sunday morning breakfast. How cool is that?

Lauretta Jean’s biscuits are yum, yum, yum, yum.

Lovejoy Foods just celebrated their Annibirthary and are entering their 5thyear. Not only a feel good story since 80% of all businesses fail in the first year, Lovejoy has a wonderful pulled pork sandwich. Fork tender on a brioche bun, plus Jo will be super excited to sell you one. Super. Excited.

It was as good as it looks

Lady-Lane is scheduled to show up and bring their milk and dairy to the market.

Winter’s Farm had limited amounts of asparagus last week, it’s going to happen again so if you want to get your stalk on, get going early.

If you enter the Market from the NW and feel PSU smells lavendery fresh, that has a lot to do with Dancing Light Ranch, who specialize in all things lavender – fresh stalks, soaps, and other products.

Our PSU Market runs every Saturday 8:30-2. Unlike every Saturday, tomorrow is supposed to beautiful, warm and have limited amounts of asparagus; larger quantities of rhubarb.
