Comstock Ferre–Heirloom Garden
So last summer my cousin helped me (by which I mean my cousin did almost all the work) build me a two tiered garden. And now this spring I want to plant, plant, plant. My goal is to do an entire garden of heirloom vegetables, but I don’t have a green thumb so I’m a tad nervous. I am open to any and all advice.
I went into Comstock Ferre in Old Wethersfield today. They are the oldest seed company in the country. There packages of seeds look like art. It’s really a beautiful place. I highly recommend you stop by some time, especially if you like to garden, like antiques, or unique artisan crafts. I bought a book on heirloom gardening that I can’t wait to read. I plan to get all my seeds at Comstock to help support a local small business that I want to stick around for another 201 years.
Note about Comstock—if you are or know a local artisan Comstock might just sell your stuff. You can call to make an appointment with someone to talk about selling your craft items.
