Now taking orders for the March 9 Pickup/Delivery service.
We are back at it again this week with our pickup/delivery service, notwithstanding the colder than normal temperatures. March is so far living up to its reputation of coming in like a lion. Nevertheless, our produce vendors such as Chesapeake Organic, Totem Farm and Fresh Harvest are now able to offer us an abundance of some items that have been limited the past couple of weeks.
And Jen is back to bake us delicious sweet and savory pies! All our other vendors continue to supply us with great items such as jams and jellies from Backyard, AlaskaWild seafood, Davidson’s mushrooms, eggs from Twin Post and cheese from Chapel Country Creamery.
Remember the deadline for ordering is Wednesday at noon. Unfortunately, we won’t normally be able to take late requests, as we must place vendor orders quickly. We urge you to order early as supplies are sometimes limited.
Organic Gardening Class
Hattie’s Garden is excited to be offering two gardening classes on Sundays in late March and early April. Each class consists of two three-hour sessions.
- 2019 Spring Gardening Class Option 1: Sunday, March 24 and Sunday, April 7 from 2 – 5 p.m.
- 2019 Spring Gardening Class Option 2: Sunday, March 31 and Sunday April 14, from 2 – 5 p.m.
The cost for the class is $120. The location this year will be at the studio at Plant Wisdom Within located at 18522 Little Goat Lane in Lewes. This nice venue is new for us this year and we are grateful to Joan Tylecki for allowing us to rent the space for you.
The class is focused on organic principles and the goal is to get all students growing a good portion of their own vegetables and herbs this year. Class time is devoted to both interactive lecture and hands on activities. It should be suitable for both newcomers and those who already garden.
There will be some “homework” between sessions so that everyone can get the most from the experience. We will discuss soil health and soil science, cool and warm weather vegetables, growing your own transplants, direct seeding, garden preparation, season extension techniques, harvesting, pests and diseases, organic controls you can employ and perhaps most importantly, why organic gardening is important.
For more general information, please see our Gardening Class page.
Plant CSA Extended
Finally, don’t forget to sign up for your CSA Plant credits. The new deadline is March 15, and payment of your CSA by that date secures your credits at a 10% discount.

We are already growing and can’t wait to start planting outside.
Yours, planning the spring garden,
