Fall is a great time to plant trees, shrubs, bareroot perennials and bulbs.

Start pansy & viola seed for bloom next spring

Watch your compost pile. This is a good time to add an activator for brown leaves & lawn trimmings

Check your lawn for grub activity. Sure signs are brown patches of lawn with turf that you can peel back. Another sign is increased activity of skunks, raccoons and moles in your lawn. Treat with dylox, oftanol or diazinon to eliminate grubs.

Plant spring flowering bulbs. Plan on the end of this month. Fertilize and water in well.

Plant fall pansy, flowering cabbage and kale. They all love the cooler night temps that come with autumn in New England.

Fall is a great time to seed or re-seed your lawn. Keep grass seed moist until germination occurs. Add weed-free straw or salt marsh hay to hold seed in place.

Open daily MondaySaturday 9am-6:45pm Sunday 9am-5:45pm.

Here is the low down on upick blueberries:

-We ask that you bring a container to pick in if you do not have one we have picking baskets/buckets that you can use, they are in the farm market, just ask and someone can help you. Please bring the container into the farm market to get weighed before you start picking!

-The blueberries are $3.49 a pound

-The blueberries are located on site but they are a little bit of a walk from the farm market, there is parking at the entrance of the blueberry fields if you choose to drive. 

-There are some loud noises that happen in the field, they are to keep the birds away from the blueberry crop so you have lots of yummy berries. 

– Its pretty hot up there so bring water, sunblock, and bug spray! 

-Blueberry season last as long as there are pickable berries on the bushes, we do not have a set date as to when it will end.

Thanks and happy picking
