It feels great to have plants in the ground. We have transplanted a whole round of kale and have a round of lettuce ready to go into two of our unheated hoophouses. The weather has been so warm that even with the hoophouse doors open and sides rolled up, we are in t-shirts!
This Friday, April 24th, and Saturday, April 25th, are the last days for the Midcoast Winter Market (at the Topsham Fairgrounds) and the Brunswick Winter Market (at Fort Andross), respectively. Thanks, all, for a great winter season!
We will have willow and pussy willow stems from Campo di Fiori available for sale again this week at both markets. The Japanese pussy willows with the grey catkins are done; this week Andrew is giving us European pussy willows, which have smaller, pink catkins. All of these stems will last - with no water - in a vase or urn for weeks. You can put them in water, but the catkins will fall off and they will start to produce leaves!
