Memories of the Yentile Farm

I remember visiting the Yentile Farm every week during the warm months
to see what new plants they had.

Vicky Yentile always greeted my wife and I and chatted about everyday things and welcomed us like family.

There was always a markdown rack where you could buy some plants that needed a bit more TLC. However, they always survived with some extra water and a bit of Miracle Grow. After, I would pop them in the garden and enjoyed their blooms for the rest of the season.

One year I bought an Angel Trumpet plant with beautiful white flowers. However, Vicky warned that it spreads fast and before you know it, there is another plant. It needs constant thinning to keep it tame but beautiful to admire.

Now that Vicky, her family and the Yentile Farm Garden Center are gone I think of them fondly when the Trumpet flowers are in bloom.

If you remember the fun times you had in the garden after picking a few flowers or that ripe tomato, come give your vote for using the Yentile Farm property as a true Community Garden. A place where you can gather with neighbors and share your harvest.

The next meeting for the Yentile Development workshop is on Feburary 27 at 7 PM at the Wilmington High School Cafeteria.
