News and Events 4-10-15


Dear Friend or Friend to be,

So how was everyone's week? Spring is here! I was out gardening quite a bit the days the weather was nice and a friend came and helped me and did a ton of work! I was so grateful I took her to dinner two nights in a row at local diners, we love to go to diners. We also love to go to flea markets and are looking forward to the one in Keyport on Sundays getting started again. I also found a list of NJ Flea Markets for most of the state. We may have to do some road trips!
And look below for the best dates for planting according to the moon. Back in the day when they had to reply on what they grew to live through the winter they paid very close attention to the moon phases.

With Love and in the Light, Cassie
