There is nothing quite like the first Saturday at Tenney's farmstand in the Spring. You can hear the cars going by screeching to a halt and turning on their blinkers as soon as they see the plant-laden tables stretched out in front. You bump into neighbors you haven't seen since Halloween, and all of us are giddy with the promise of heading into the garden. A few more weeks before the frost-free date, but for impatient gardeners, grabbing pots of lemon balm and lavender, lemon thyme and Jacob's ladder, as well as pansies and violas, now is the time.
And lording over us all is Sammy the Scottie , toting his rock from person to person, ever hopeful for a quick toss and fetch. Happy Spring!
