View Nantucket by Nature
If you haven't had to opportunity to see what has been called 'A love letter to Nantucket,' now is your chance. Kit Noble spent a year of his life staking out some of the most beautiful spots on our island and then worked with a team of local musicians to craft a film that will surprise even those that have spent their entire lives here.

Nantucket By Nature Jacket

Kit will be on hand to answer your questions about this film and his plan for future films about Nantucket.
Time to Get Those Bulbs Planted!
Dutch Master
Daffodil Weekend is April 28 and 29, 2012, and that means that NOW is the time to get your daffodils in the ground! November is a great time to plant, but don't wait too long! We still have a good selection of bulbs, and if you are interested in entering the show, the bulb boxes are all labeled with the entry category! Write it down now, and it will be easier to make your entry in April!
Many of you may remember that we experimented with planting tulips in front of the market last year, and the results were astounding!
This photo was taken after a Nor'easter, and they survived beautifully! If your yard is protected from deer, this might be just the time to try planting some tulips!
