Sadly, there will be no pawpaws this year for Pawtuxet Village. Rhonda and Joe of Rocky Point Blueberry Farm report that the pawpaw crop was ruined this year by the late spring freeze and/or the heavy wind storms we had while the flowers were blooming.On the bright side, we be giving away free seeds and instructions for nurturing your own pawpaw tree! Mark Garrison, the original planter of the grove at Rocky Point, will be here on October 15 with seeds donated by Rhonda and Joe, and expert advice on how to successfully grow your own.
We will also have flyers at the market welcome table about the free trees that will be distributed at the market on October 22 by DEM. Homeowners are eligible to apply for the program which aims to reduce energy use by planting trees in optimal locations.
Thanks to all of you who showed up to shop in the rain last week. And to the scarecrow crafters who created this lovely creature for the Edgewood Garden Club and the market’s entry for the village scarecrow contest.
See you at the market.
