Happy Mother's Day!

Don't forget about Mom this Sunday!  Stop by Spring Ledge Farm for some ideas.  

They have all sorts of plants for mom, from fruit trees and blueberry bushes to hanging baskets, geraniums, tropical mandevilla, herbs, perennials and flowering shrubs.

They offer kid-sized (& kid-priced) pots of basil, marigolds and alyssum. We have beautiful hanging baskets grown using organic soils and beneficial microbes and good bugs. They even add a long term organic fertilizer to the hanging baskets for a season-long food source. They've created combinations of ceramic pots and flowering annuals that look great and will last all season.

  Hardy Japanese maples, forsythia, azaleas and rhododendrons are in stock and looking great. Planting one of these for mom results in a lasting memory and something to enjoy for years. Spring Ledge has bags of compost and local earthworm castings to add nutrition and soil health to the planting.

Or let mom choose exactly what she wants with a gift card to Spring Ledge - available in any denomination.

 And the best part of shopping at Spring Ledge Farm? Their great staff to help you choose from all the available plants and pots. They are open Mon-Sat 9-6 & Sunday 9-4. Stop in early to beat the rain!

Get Your Pumpkins Race-Ready!

The Great Pumpkin Race is this Friday, October 18, 2013 and all are welcome!  It will be held on Gould Road in New London, behind the Town Green.  Registration is at 5:30pm and the race is 6:00pm.  Take two axles, add four wheels and you're ready to race.  There are a few rules:

The Official Pumpkin Race Rules have been established to promote fair play and inspire good old-fashioned American Ingenuity.

All Pumpkin Racers must design and race their Pumpkin Races according to these few important rules to ensure that the Pumpkin Race is fun and fair for everyone.

  • RULE #1 Craft your Pumpkin RaceCar using a single pumpkin.
  • RULE #2 Insert two independent axles through your pumpkin and attach wheels to the axels. Spice up your racer with style.
  • RULE #3 You may not attach your pumpkin onto a pre-fabricated chassis of any kind (skateboard, stroller, Tonka truck, etc., etc...) A.K.A. The "Anti-Stealth" Rule.
  • RULE #4 NO EXPLOSIVES or PYROTECHNICS.
  • RULE #5 No pushing or "helping" your Pumpkin Racer on the starting line. Our Race Officials have seen it all - the last minute shove, the hidden thumb flick, the early release, the remote control chassis, etc. etc. See Rule #6.
  • RULE #6 NO CHEATING. Feel great about being honest and fair. Don't be tempted to be a Cheater Pumpkin. Use the honor system and obey the spirit of these rules. Our Race Officials have a keen eye and the Mallet-O-Justice ready to bring a Cheater Pumpkin down

WITH YOUR RIGHT HAND ON YOUR MOUSE, REPEAT THE SOLEMN PUMPKIN RACER PLEDGE:

"I pledge to always do my very best and play by the rules because Cheater Pumpkins never prosper." This is the Pumpkin Racer Pledge

Congratulations, Pumpkin Racer.  Get out and enjoy the fun!
