Gravenstein Apples are here!

Fresh-off-the tree, the tart, smooth Gravenstein makes exceptional pies!

The Gingergold (arriving next week), already a favorite at our Apple Tasting, is truly exceptional when fresh: Crispy with a tart edge to balance it’s abundant sugar. Taste these two superstars now at the height of their flavor, because when they’re gone they’re gone!

Still only 99¢!

Ian Connor of Connor Bamboo and the Basics of Bamboo

There is nothing like bamboo for grace and poetry year-round, but it can also be a point of contention with the neighbors if you do not control it appropriately. Ian Connor is a true expert in bamboo and we love to hear him share his knowledge of and enthusiasm for these mammoth grasses. This class is a must if you want to plant bamboo or just want to learn more about its diversity and habits.
