Putting your Garden to Bed? You can save those dahlia tubers! 
And once you get the old stuff cleared out, you will find some space to plant daffodils! Planting them in the ground NOW will bring you beautiful blooms in the spring!  We have lots of varieties and mixes and plenty of specimens that you could enter in the Nantucket Garden Club Daffodil Show in the spring!  We've been working in the garden, putting it to bed, these last several days (before the rain) and finding new spots to plant these bright, sunshiny flowers! 
Not sure how to go about planting bulbs? 
Starting Thursday, November 9

It's time again for the
Nantucket Chamber of Commerce Red Ticket Event!
For every $25 you spend at a participating merchant,
you receive a red ticket. Collect them and keep track of the numbers, then on Christmas Eve, head to Main Street where you could win 
$1000 or $5000 if you have the winning number! 
If you won't be on Nantucket on Christmas Eve, you may put your tickets in our donation bucket.  We will be donating tickets to the Liz de Souza Memorial Fund this year. 
The cooler weather has us thinking about spending a little more time inside and that makes us think of making our indoor spaces a little cozier!  What better way to do that than to add some houseplants!  And to make it even better, they are 50% off now!  
Annuals, succulents, pottery, statuary and fairy garden products are all at least 50% off too! 
Are you an HGTV watcher? Well, even if you aren't, you ought to tune in to see some footage that was filmed at the farm last summer.  Click here to find viewing times!
