Merry Meet :)) It's finally Spring here in Massachusetts and time to get the garden going. :))) I'm so excited to have my gardens back.
Yesterday was opening day at this farm one town over from me. It's actually the first time I've ever been there on opening day. I was a bit anxious to get started this year! :) I go to the same farm every year to get baby plants as they have amazing prices and a wonderful variety. Everyone knows it too! You have to go on a weekday as on the weekends they actually have to hire a cop to help with the traffic it gets so ridiculously busy there.
I got soooooo many herbs! You can see them in the picture above. The picture really doesn't do it justice lol. There are 18 basil plants alone just to give you an idea. I got lemon verbena, marjoram, thyme, chocolate mint, spearmint, oregano, lavender, sage, rosemary and so many others. Enough that I'm actually increasing my herb garden to 4 times it's original size this year! I'll show you pictures when we get it all planted. :))) We have another garden for veggies and we are expanding that one this year as well. We have a mini strawberry and rhubarb garden and another mini garden last year that had corn but it will house varieties of lettuce this year. :))
Along with the great prices and variety this farm does an amazing job with atmosphere. I took a bunch of pictures to share with you when I was there as I know a lot of you will enjoy the little things that they've done. The building above is on the premises. They use it to house some of the equipment but they've done an amazing job making it look quaint and blending it in.
They've made the entire place look like a small village. :)) All the buildings are lines with beautiful examples of landscaping ideas.
I thought this outdoor canopy featuring the doves was beautiful. :)))
A creative and cozy place to take a bit of a rest. :)))
A fountain tucked into the corner before you go to check out.
Another incredibly creative fountain. This one comes all the way down the wall and goes into a small pond that is like a mini river that runs the length of the building below.
