Saturday, July 2 at 8:30 a.m. — CAVENDISH — For close to 40 years, the Saturday before the Fourth of July is marked by the annual plant sale of the Cavendish Historical Society. The sale takes place on Saturday, July 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Cavendish Historical Society Museum, 1958 Main St. (Route 131), Cavendish.
Shoppers can purchase some of what’s said to be the biggest and best hosta around, in addition to other perennials, including for the first time mock orange shrubs, herbs and raspberry plants. Back by popular demand, “patio” tomato plants (Better Boy, Early Girl, Sweet 100s, and Brandywine) will be available for sale, potted and staked in five-gallon containers. Tomatoes are limited and were sold out by 9:30 a.m. last year.
This year, there will also be a book signing of CHS’s latest publication “Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: The Writer Who Changed History.” The first children’s book ever written on Cavendish’s famous resident, the book is suitable for all ages, particularly because of the many photographs, thanks to the Solzhenitsyn family. See feature article on p age 39 for more info.
