Fall is here at the market...squash, apples, apple butter, and caramel corn.  Fall also means the end of peaches, nectarines, and plums.  We still have some in stock, but they are soon to be gone, so eat up!

 

 

Tip of the Week

People are always asking us...trim roses in the fall or spring?  Spring is a better time than fall for a few reasons.  First, trimming in the spring allows you to see what you've lost in growth over the winter and trim accordingly.  This allows you to keep some extra height or size that wintered well. Second, the rose hips that the plant produces are beneficial in signaling the plant to stop blooming for the season.  They also prepare the plant to bloom in the spring because their appearance that the plant has pollinated.
