FARMERS MARKET LANCASTER,OHIO AND MORE

          A cool cloudy Saturday morning in Lancaster, Ohio May 16th 2009 and it is off to the Lancaster Farmers Market plus side trips to some local “Flower Emporiums.” For the Farmers Market they have blocked off N. Broad Street where it intersects with Main St.

I had been looking for a BOSTON FERN Nephrolepis exaltata Bostoniensis and the one at  Schmelzer’s saved me $8.00 over a local competitor and was of better quality. Made me happy…

Now it’s time to hang out on the deck and enjoy quality time in my back yard.

What a great day. If I eat my spinach, I wonder if I could build a great deck like that?

Joe, that looks like a great greenhouse with loads of plants. I will have to see if I can find it on my next trip to Lancaster. Looks like I will have to cover and bring in a couple of things the next two nights. It is time now for all of this cold junk to be gone. I did not know Lancaster had a farmers market. Logan has one on Fridays.
