It's time to think about your SUMMER GARDEN!
As a totally surreal Spring has shifted toward a beautifully cool and sunny Summer, we find ourselves unceremoniously ripping out our Spring annuals (so floriferous, they've been blooming since March, oblivious to the pandemic-related chaos around them) and replanting our demonstration gardens with Summer-to-Fall favorites that promise to evoke ooohs and aaahs from June all the way to September (and beyond!).
With so many of us turning to vegetable gardening, starting seeds from scratch and remembering how it feels to slow down and be thankful for the good things in our lives, we're appreciating (and working in) our gardens more than ever. The birds are still singing, the bees and butterflies are still foraging (and needing sustenance!) and sunsets haven't been cancelled. There is still so much to be grateful for.
We want to WELCOME all of the NEW gardeners we've met recently in the nursery, over the phone and through social media to one of the most rewarding hobbies/lifestyles/obsessions of all time! You're going to have so much fun. We've never felt more supported and more essential to our community than we have in the last couple of months. Gardening is a solace, and we are so thankful to have it – and you! – in these isolating times. Be well friends!
