The Farm Dirt
News from Bartlett's Farm 
August 10,  2016
We are open every day from 8-7!
(That includes Saturdays and Sundays!)
Planning for the Pops? 
Let us take care of your picnic food and everything else you need!
Check out our take-out catering menu, and place your order early!
Come out to pick up appetizers... entrees... farm grown salads... desserts...great cheeses...mixers...cooler bags...freezy packs...beach chairs...chilled drinks...wines...crackers...and more!
The deadline for ordering food for the Pops concert
is tomorrow, 8/11.
These 'larger format' wines are a great idea for a
large family picnic (or for the Pops Concert, where you may be sitting on the beach with thousands of your best friends.) 
Each box of Bridge Lane Rose is the equivalent of four regular bottles of wine.  Not only is the price more desirable, you won't have the weight of the glass bottles to carry along.  
Magnums are the equivalent of two bottles!

From the Garden Center

The garden center is full of great-looking and healthy perennials like Monarda, Rudbeckia, Echinacea, a great selection of Hydrangeas, and there are still plenty of annuals for filling in holes in the garden!
And don't look now, but we are transitioning to fall planting with  cooler season annuals and perennials arriving.
Ornamental peppers, calibrachoa, new 'Hello' gerberas, and more!

Get back in the garden and remember to water!
