One of the surest signs of spring is the opening of Hamilton’s Greenhouse 30 seconds down the road from me. I went and got some pansies, herbs, sweet peas, and more for a few of the pots and baskets near the porch. I got to talk with good neighbors about the history of my farm and surrounding ones, and got beautiful plants to boot. Lovely.
I freshened up my baskets and pots by removing about 1/3 of the potting soil and adding the world’s loveliest compost that we buy by the truckload from another great woman-owned business–Soilmaker.
