Cool temperatures this spring have delayed planting for many home gardeners, and even early colder-weather crops are still far short of harvest time.
But it’s possible to get a jump on spring at local farmers markets. Greenhouses allow growers to ripen some vegetables earlier than in most backyards. But just getting out and talking to growers can give gardeners a taste of the season.
The Greenwood Farmers Market opened for the season April 27. Hours will be 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays at Greenwood United Methodist Church, 525 N. Madison Ave. The first offerings of the season in Greenwood will be bedding plants (vegetables and flowers), early spring vegetables and baked goods.
