GROWDAT CHICKENS ARE UNDER ATTACK AT THEIR WINTER HOME IN CAVENDISH – OVER THE LAST 5 WEEKS WE HAVE TRAPPED FIVE MINK AND SEEN ANOTHER FOUR – THEY ARE NOT WILD BUT APPEAR TO BE MINK THAT ESCAPED FROM THE LOCAL MINK FARM.THE REAL DANGER WILL COME AFTER THE MINK HAVE BEEN IN THE WILD FOR A MONTH AND THEY START TO LOOK FOR FOOD (OUR CHICKENS)

Market Hours remain the same – Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10-6. This weekend our 4″ pot size perennials are on sale at $3 each ( tax inc.). Buy 5 and you get the next one free! Strawberries and eggs are going strong, but going fast. …. early birds get more worms !!!
and no… we do not have potatoes, turnip, cabbage, etc YET. We DO have lovely lettuces, spinach and kale; and peas and radishes. Baby carrots are almost ready, Tomatoes are still green but growing! If anyone is looking for strawberry plants at this time, call or drop by to arrange bare root (runners) pick up time.
P.S. – if anyone has any idea where we could find fertilized chicken/turkey eggs please let us know asap. Big Red is broody and trying to sit on duds!!
