About three years ago, Behnke’s started selling these beautiful hand-made quilled greeting cards at the garden center. I got many queries on where folks could purchase them. Finally, they have arrived.....
A few months ago, I shared with you the story of beginning gardeners Adrienne and Cordelia Neff’s Victory Garden. At the time, they had planned out the garden and got their seeds, put up a fence, and got to work.
I love ETSY! The whole idea that you can pretty much find anything on it and know for the most part it will be coming from a small business. For me, these gardening t-shirts have caught my eye.
I have written before about all of the store fixtures that many of you bought before we closed. So many have shared what they used them for, which has been fantastic.
One thing that came out of the closing of Behnke’s was getting to know Vincent. When we announced we would be closing the nursery, he was among the first to start asking about purchasing some of the fixtures around the nursery.

Behnke’s closed just over a year ago, and I took advantage of that to retire. So, I’ve been home a lot more than I used to be, but then again, so is nearly everyone else.
