Memorial day weekend at THE GOOD EARTH
View this email in your browser

The BIG weekend is here!

Memorial day is celebrated on the last Monday in May and is a day to commemorate all men and women who have died in service for the USA.
This day is also seen as the official start of the summer gardening season.
We honor both of these traditions.
We've had a few warm and sunny days now and i
t sure feels good to be able to get out in the garden and dig, feel the warmth of the sun, smell the earth and other plant delights and listen to the joyful bird songs.
2016 is our 21st year and we owe it all to you, our very special and loyal customers. Thank you!
This is the weekend that most of us abandon all other endeavors in order to get
out into our gardens and get our favorite vegetables, herbs, annuals and perennials in the ground.
If the weather reports are right we've got a gorgeous weekend ahead of us to
make it all happen!

For all you veggie lovers we have plenty of seedlings for your vegetable garden; tomato plants in all colors, sizes and shapes, sweet and sizzling hot peppers, cucumbers, eggplant, squashes and more. To make your cooking sing we'll have lots of herbs as well as our own seed grown flowers to plant for the harmonious concert of beneficial insects, butterflies, hummingbirds and our beloved bees.



We're harvesting lots of gorgeous greens from our field for the weekend; Lettuce, Arugula, Spinach, Kale, Mustard greens, lots of radishes and more.
All fresh, organic and
naturally delicious!
Perfect for salads, steaming or sautés
.

If you're interested in joining The Good Earth's CSA
for a weekly "share" of the organic veggies
that we grow here on our farm,
we still have a few shares available for this season.
You can visit the CSA page on our website for more information.

For all of you flower lovers we have a good selection of perennials-including many natives-to bring color and fragrance to your sanctuary.
For climbers we have some native wisteria and honeysuckle and
colorful clematis. We also have two very quick growing vines to cover an unsightly view or fill in as a privacy screen. Autumn blooming clematis and Akibia quinata.
We have a great selection of flowering annuals too
for pops of color throughout summer and into fall.
Whether for sun or shade, wet or dry, short or tall...
we've got the right plant for the right place.

Another reminder that whether in the garden or in containers
you need to keep your plants well fed during the growing season.
We have North Country Organics natural fertilizers for
your lawn and gardens
and Neptune's Harvest liquid fish fertilizers
for your container plants.


Building a new raised bed and need some good organic soil to fill it with?
We carry bulk compost and a "raised bed mix" to
fill your beds or amend your gardens.


We also can help you with pests that bother your plants, from
the grubs that eat the roots to the caterpillars that eat the leaves.
Our natural grub control-the beneficial nematodes-have arrived and they are
looking forward to a grub banquet, so if you have bare patches on your lawn
or find big juicy white grubs every time you lift the shovel
you need these guys as much as they need you!

Have you ever thought about the weeds that surround us and
wondered why they are so persistent?
Do you know that many of them are edible and extremely nutritious?
On Sunday at 11:00 a.m. Brett Mayette from Conscious Cuisine will be
leading us on a weed walk and teaching us all about these delectable plants and
how to use them. After this informative walk Brett will conjure up a delicious
tasting of cultivated greens from The Good Earth and these wild wonders.
To reserve a place at the table please send us an email.
You can learn more about Brett's expertise in the field here...

We have some talented folks that work here at The Good Earth and you will get to see and be able to purchase some of their art work.
Homemade soaps from Glennis, fine gift cards from LZ,
fashion jewelry from Laura and
beautiful portraits by Alyssa.
Also on Sunday, Mike Bock will demonstrate how to
build Cairns
for your garden at 1:00.
He has been building cairns for eight years and has never passed a rock pile without sizing them up for one of his projects.


We'll see you on the weekend!
