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!
