For the Picky Rosé Drinker-
Scribe Winery- Una Lou California Rosé
When Andrew Mariani and his wife, Lia Ices, welcomed their daughter, Una Lou, into the world they created a celebratory rosé in her name. Made from organically farmed Pinot Noir from a few vineyards across Carneros, this rose has aroma and flavors of strawberries and citrus, with hints of salinity. Pair with creamy, bloomy rind cheeses, cold cuts & salads. A percentage of proceeds will go to two organizations that support youth, food and agricultural education: the Edible Schoolyard, and The Center for Land-Based Learning.
For a Crowd-
When Jenny & Francois made “From the Tank®” , they were determined to source the highest possible quality grapes, grown organically or sustainably and hand-harvested, made only with indigenous yeasts and lightly sulfured, just like all the other wines they work with.  Refreshing notes of strawberries, grapefruit, lean acidity and refreshing citrus. Note that perfect shade of "Provençal pink"!
Something a little different!
Graft "Field & Flowers" Gosé Cider
We would like to introduce you to the absurdly delicious all day Gosé cider from Graft brewed with rose hips, hibiscus, rooibos & pink sea salt.  The ultimate spring sipper! You won't want to share, so make sure to buy enough!
 Garden Center "Growings" On
The ever fabulous Japanese Maples have arrived and are looking some fetching! Almost all the trees have a mature height of under 12 feet, perfect for Nantucket winds as they will stay shorter than most fences and hedgerows. Along with the Maples, we have all sorts of dwarf, slow-growing evergreens have arrived as well. With delightful names like “Butter Ball” “White Pygmy” and “Mr. Bowling Ball” they are worth a look!
It's absolutely spectacular out in the Garden Center with new arrivals of spring tulips, hyacinths, azaleas, hydrangeas, lilies and more...

We Made the Paper...Twice!
"There's a real need for alternative energy on the island so we're not putting in a third cable to the mainland"- John Bartlett, quoted in last Thursday's paper
Both John Bartlett & Andrew Spollett were in the Inky this week for their work with solar power and hydroponic farming! Be sure to snag a copy before tomorrow morning to read the whole articles! 

"The benefit of growing hydroponically is a shortened crop cycle. These can grow a lot quicker because they are getting the exact nutrients they need, which is different from growing in soil."- Andrew Spollett, Vegetable Production Manager
