For the past two years I’ve gone to an annual plant sale held at Camp Venture in Sparkill. Camp Venture provides services to adults and children with developmental disabilities. The people here take their garden seriously. On my way in, I stop to look at it - It’s so nicely planned out.
I love the way they’ve used branches and logs for the structures. (For the past two years, I’ve also tried to remind myself to go back later in the season and see what these great climbing walls they’ve made have climbing on them. This year for sure!)
They had a nice array of perennials and annuals, as well as a few herbs and veggies. Even some healthy looking sunflowers.
Another surprise was some homemade local maple syrup. You don’t find that too often around here. You can also find old videos, rollerblades, decorations and other miscellaneous tag sale items.
This nice man helped me carry my plants to the car.
I'm adding a new foxglove, delphinium and zinnia to the list of stuff to put in the ground this weekend. Couldn't pass up the syrup, either.
Hit any good plant sales lately?
