Spring Fever

Now Open 8-6 Mon-Fri; 8-5 Sat; Noon-4 Sunday

“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want—oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”  ― Mark Twain


The alter ego of Samuel Clemens hits the nail on the head. The brisk and beautiful days of early spring are upon us. It is the time of year for us all where the hours of the day can seem agonizingly deficient. So much to do, so much we want to do, and seemingly never quite enough time to get it all done. You can thank winter for that. Now that the eternal night of winter has given way to the incandescence of the season of awakening, we are left with the puzzle of how to spend our time and our efforts in the most pleasing and productive direction.


You're probably thinking about planting flowers. With today being April 10th, the average last frost date for our area, it is only natural to be pouring over your notes from last year and pondering what changes lie ahead this year for your garden.  A word to the wise: while this is the average last frost date; that does not mean with certainty we have had our last frost. In fact, I would in no way be surprised if we still had a couple more in our future. I am not saying don't plant annuals, I am advising you to plant with a purpose and a plan. Be prepared to deal with what nature gives.


This spring season, we have made some changes. Our new and faster checkout process is now hybridized. We still have cashiers at the usual locations, additionally; many of our employees now have wireless handheld devices. This affords us the ability to quickly make inventory searches, checkout from nearly anywhere in our sales area (when you pay with a bankcard), and receive your receipt via email!
