The days are warming and the nights are still pretty cold, but there's movement in the earth and among the trees and the bustling birds~~~ I roam around the garden every day looking for emerging growth; I anxiously await the first daffodil blooms. I have seeds germinating under lights and seedlings waiting to be potted up; the weeding has begun in earnest.
The SVGM had its annual spring meeting last Friday: look for news of our outdoor vendor lineup in the next couple of weeks in this email. We've returning vendors and a few new ones, too, ~~~ we're all looking forward to a new growing season after the weather challenges of the past year. We wish our growers a productive early spring as they begin their planting and digging in the hope this new season brings.
Bill Callahan has beef and pork this week and says he will have live guineas available this spring~~~we'll keep you posted.
Be sure to stop by the indoor market for the best local foods available until the growing and the greening is in full swing. Visit us Fridays from 2pm to 5pm through the end of April, in our friendly, sheltered, indoor space. We're but five weeks away from the May 3 opening of our outdoor market season~~~
Blessings for a bright and lovely Spring!
