British horticulturist and writer Gertrude Jekyll once wrote, “A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.”
Isn’t that true too of a relationship between a mother and her children? With some constant care and tending it blooms into something wonderful.
This month we celebrate Mother’s Day, which lands on Sunday, May 12. We also celebrate the bounty the land has blessed us with.
If you’re looking for a gift for your mom, come to Orr’s Farm Market and shop from some of our wonderful products. We have plenty of things to put a smile on her face.
Is Mom a foodie? We have a variety of premade items that she’s bound to like — and better yet — something she doesn’t have to cook herself.
By late May, we’re expecting a crop of fresh strawberries grown here in Berkeley County. You can eat them plain, in a pie, or as strawberry shortcake. Strawberries are the perfect treat for these spring days.
Thinking of other fresh-from-the-garden items to try? How about:
- Asparagus now through mid-June
- Rhubarb now through mid-June
- Large selection of fresh herbs
- Hydroponic lettuce year-round
Stop by every week throughout the spring and summer for fresh from the garden goodness. We’re open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
