Don't Ask the Groundhog

It’s St. Brigid’s Day, and it brings to mind our friends Judy and Bob of St. Brigid’s Farm, where our family cows came from. They’re ready for spring grass, and tomorrow, the groundhog will weigh in, but of course the plants have their own ideas.


It’s been intermittently cold in Maryland.

Last year at the beginning of February, we already had some hellebores blooming and the daffodils were up. This year they’re all hunkered down waiting to decide whether the cold is really over. The cold winter left room for a new first bloom of the season: pussywillow!


We’ll be starting our first seedlings in the back room this week including some new Icelandic poppies from Floret we’re super excited about. Of course we’ve had your hardy annuals for early spring tucked in under row covers since last fall, and we can’t wait to share them with you.


Summer bouquet subscriptions are coming soon, and as spring weather arrives we'll announce availability dates on this mailing list. Tell all your friends, sign up here.

Comfort and Joy!
The Bruntons
