The excitement of the summer season is growing here at Hattie’s Garden, along with all of our flowers, vegetables and herbs! We know from past experience our July 4th crowds will span both weekends surrounding Independence Day next Tuesday and we will continue to see a growing influx of folks coming to the Lewes, Rehoboth area for some time with the ocean, our outlets, our restaurants and other local businesses.
Even though it gets a bit crowded, we try to enjoy these short weeks of summer with all the fun and activity, all the festivity and celebration that is after all, what summer represents by the seashore.
What’s Available This Week
If you are an activity kind of person, we hope to see you at either of the Historic Lewes Farmers Market (HLFM) farmer’s markets: Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. located at Kings Highway across from Crooked Hammock Brewery and Saturday from 8 to Noon in the City of Lewes located at George H.P. Smith Park (Block House Pond).
Alternatively, please stop by Hattie’s Garden on Thursday or Friday anytime from 10 to 5 for a quiet and peaceful look at the burgeoning garden and first pick of what’s available this week.
