The first full moon in May has always signaled the beginning of gardening season here in Rhode Island and Southeastern, MA. And this year, what a great full moon it will be! The official full moon occurs at 12:14am on May 16th, and the lunar eclipse, when the full moon passes through the shadow of the Earth, will peak at 12:11am on that same date. The moon, appearing larger than normal due to its proximity to earth, will take on a reddish glow, thus the term "blood moon". Let's hope this colliding celestial energy sets all of our gardening friends off on a pathway to a great growing season.
In that spirit, we will be a opening up the Roadside Stand for a few additional hours this coming week, details below. In the coming week additional inventory will also begin to arrive. The majority of our organic herb and vegetable plants will be here May 14th, we have an amazing array of heirloom and unusual items heading our way. And, lots of additional gorgeous pollinator annuals and beneficial native plant plugs will be here on or around May 18th. Inventory is arriving - and leaving - too quickly to keep our website lists up to date. Stop by often to see what's available or send us a message if you are looking for something special. And remember, our signature gallon sized neonicotinoid free straight species native perennials will be ready in June to get your summer pollinator garden buzzing. They are coming along great, can't wait to share them with you.
