Strawberry Time

Days of sunlight in the Annapolis Valley along with plentiful rains resulted in early strawberry crops this season and we’re pleased to have them this week-end. The berries are plump and red—delighting the eye and making everyone’s mouth water once more for berries from the Nova Scotia berry patch. Pickup your berries while our supplies last, and don’t forget to stop by our bakery for fresh biscuits. Pick up a carton of cream and you’ll be enjoying local strawberry shortcake once again. Days of berry picking, cleaning, freezing, baking pies, putting up jams and jellies are upon us---indulge your love of strawberries and feast on them while they last.

Elspeth's Top 10 List

This week we’re featuring number 7 on Elspeth’s Top 10 List--the Spanish Daisy. It’s a wonderful little trailing plant with white flowers that looks delicate but can withstand amazing amounts of hot dry sun.  Although we’ve sold out for this season add it to your list of “must haves” for next season.

In The Garden

Remember to fertilize your planters and hanging baskets to keep them flowering all summer long.   We have the product you need---check at our Market counter for 14-14-14—Slow Release Fertilize.  Pick up the packet for $3.39, or choose a larger container if you have masses of flowers to tend.  Remember that Wave Petunias are heavy feeders and slow release fertilizer is not enough for them.

Week-end Special

Looking for a fun burst of color for your gardens and outdoor surroundings?  Our seed geraniums offer a fresh take on a humble flower---bright shades of red, pink, and orange--sure to provide lots of colorful pops on your paths.  Stock up now--just $1.29 each or 10 for nine ninety-nine ($9.99).

Generations before us have relied on geraniums--our grandmother’s over wintered them in sunny kitchen windows, then moved them out of doors and coaxed them into stunning bursts of summer color. For us it’s so much easier---but no less stunning.  Geraniums--a tried and true summer favourite!

For shady areas on your doorstep, deck or garden, plant Impatiens.  Available in a rainbow of glorious colors and sure to delight all summer long.

Flags a Flying

Our 20% off sale continues on garden flags.  Selection includes mini and full size flags, flag poles and wrought iron stands.  Send a summertime signal with a welcome flag.

Shrubs in the Landscape

One of our most requested shrubs are lilacs.  After all, who can resist their cheerful lavender blooms and their sweet scent?  Those who want to plant a lilac but aren’t looking for a huge tree will want to pick a Miss Kim lilac from our selection.  They don’t get too big--just 4 feet high and they’re a later variety to bloom.  Another favourite amongst gardeners is the Mock Orange---budding now, look for the Minnesota Snowflake.

Canada Day - July 1st

At the Market we’ll join in the celebrations of our National Holiday on Sunday, July 1st with our traditional free pancake breakfast.  Rain or shine, we serve from 8:30 to 11 am.  The griddles will be hot with fresh pancakes, juice and coffee--don’t be late--we look forward to seeing everyone on this important national holiday.  For many of you it will be a long week-end--make a visit to the market part of your celebrations.

Summertime

Summer, with its slow, casual pace is about to begin. Folks are setting up the barbeque, spending week-ends and holidays at the lake or the beach, relaxing in their gardens.  Summer is all about outdoor living.  As the song says, “summertime and the livin’ is easy” and the eating is delicious.  At the Market we pride ourselves in helping you get the most out of summertime. Stop by this week and fill up your shopping basket with our helpful ideas. 

 

Happy summertime everyone……Mary
