March Madness

March Madness for sure! Snow, ice, rain, more snow, and continuing freezing temps make us wonder if spring will EVER arrive! Seeds are coming in, along with light and airy spring scarves, new garden pots, gloves, tools etc. We will be attending the New England Product Trade show in Portland next weekend for even more new goodies to add to the mix.
BUT...we have decided to take a late winter retail break. We will remain open this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the 3rd, 4th and 5th, but then we are closing the store for the rest of the month of March. We will reopen, hopefully to a bit warmer and less snowy weather in April with new things arriving daily after that and the spring gardening season will be upon us.
Last year at this time we were already out in the garden working on the foundation for the store (no snow, not even any mud!) Amazing how different each winter can be!
So, remember that we are always happy to open the store on your schedule, just call us if you need anything at all..359-5030 or 359-8414..we will be checking messages regularly and working in the store processing new deliveries.
Try not to go mad waiting for winter to depart...soon the tulips and daffodils will be sprouting, the rhubarb will be poking out of the foundation snowbanks and robins will dot the yard.
