    At this point we are deciding how to conduct the upcoming season. We have lots of plants, jam and flowers, but it may not be possible to have an open market as we have done in the past. We are playing with lots of ideas: taking orders on-line, packing your orders, even having a "trust" system where customers chose what they want then dropping money and checks in a box. Meanwhile we are exploring digital transactions like Square.com and Venmo

    Whatever develops we will notify our customers as quickly as possible. Thanks, Rick and Jackie

     

     

    We have been looking forward to seeing everyone soon when the Iris will be blooming, and we will be selling heirloom tomato and pepper starts. We hope to be open but must be realistic in light of the current health situation.
