The Farm Dirt

Orchid Mania!
It's official...I've lost count of how many time Nick Mancieri has been here to enlighten us on the care and culture of orchids. Each year, there are more attendees, more excitement and more orchids!
Jim Lentowski
Nick is bringing a vanload of cool orchids and will be in the garden center by 9am on Saturday. His talk will officially begin in the Hayloft at 10, and he will be around until about 4:30.

Happy Mother's Day
While we can't predict exactly what your mother wants for Mother's Day, it is safe to say she will appreciate whatever effort you put into it. Hmmm. Flowers? Plants? Dinner she doesn't have to cook? A hug? A card? Time alone? Time together? Well, if it's flowers she's looking for, we can certainly help! Jacqui Wiggins will be running an informal 'make a vase of flowers for mom' kid's workshop on Saturday May 8th. For under $10.00 you can put together a centerpiece vase (and a card) for Mom to put on the table for Mother's Day dinner.
If plants are what you are looking for, the garden center is chock full of perennials, organically grown herbs and vegetable plants, gorgeous hanging baskets and hardy annuals!
Mj and her crew are preparing several special entrees for the kitchen counter and the bakers are creating beautifully decorated special sugar cookies for mom. Jacqui has a beautiful, unique collection of gifts, too! But if you simply can't decide, a Bartlett's Farm gift card will certainly be appreciated any time of the year.
Happy Mother's Day!
May Garden Series
May is for gardening...there's no doubt about that! The Garden Center will be the venue for a new series of Gardening Classes over the next few weeks beginning on Wednesday May 12th at 2pm with Chris Hestwood. She will run a hands-on workshop where you will be able to create and plant your own moss basket to take home. The fee is $65.00 Email to reserve your space!
Bring your children to the next class on Wednesday May 19th and they can plant their own sunflower pots. There is no fee for this afternoon event. Stay tuned for more information about the Garden Series!
