Today at the 326 Community Market: FRUIT AND NUT TREES ARE BACK!
It's fall... and that means it's planting season.
I've just restocked with chestnuts, persimmons (including some of the amazing astringent types... I couldn't help myself), peaches, nectarines and pears.
Along with those, I have white mulberries, dwarf mulberries, and a few Illinois Everbearing mulberries.
And figs! Don't forget the Gainesville Epic Figs I started!
Anyhow - this is going to be a great week. Lots and lots of new stuff, plus my regular selection of perennial vegetables, bananas, peppers and other fun plants.
|Plant your own chestnut orchard. Did you know chestnut trees can bear within a year or two of being planted?|
Visit the 326 Market in Ocala today and go shopping. There's a lot going on in the nursery and I'm finding more rare edibles each week.
The 326 Community Market runs every Thursday from 3 - 7PM and is really easy to find.
Google map is here. Their Facebook page is here (with lots more photos and info):
My prices are good and my gardening advice is free.
Beyond what I carry, there are also folks selling homegrown produce, real old-fashioned lye soap, handcrafts, handmade jewelry, signs, delicious ice cream (from actual hand-milked cows), crafts, vegetables, baked goods, homemade jams and jellies, local raw honey, ornamental plants, homemade birdhouses and more.
It's a great group of people and very friendly... the way a local market should be.
Come on down!
