The hot temperatures the last few days have finally given the veggies the boost they needed to put on a growth spurt. Expect to see a lot more variety at this Saturday’s market, such as rainbow Swiss chard from Blue Skys Farm.
Memorial Day weekend means cookouts and the first trips to the beach; you can find fresh fish and chicken, beef, pork and lamb, cheese, nuts, greens and veggies, rolls, breads, desserts and more for the grill or take along. Browse the vendors and ask for their recommendations; they really know their stuff!
Our new tulip tree was planted on Wednesday; we hope it will soon be casting a cooling shadow at the east end of the line up. Thanks to volunteers Steve Stycos, Penelope Hough, Lynne Harrington, Sandy Jacobi, Lisa Gibb and Annemarie Bruun for braving the heat. Watering help is still needed to ensure that this tree and the young ones planted last fall will survive and thrive. Please stop by the market welcome table or e-mail to volunteer.
The tree was paid for by the Friends of the Pawtuxet and a donation in memory of Mary Bruun and Elaine Dedora.
See you at the market.
