New bands, new vendors and no dogs. It’s farmers’ market season and the 43-year-old West Tisbury Farmers’ Market is under new management.

There is quite a bit of complaining about the weather lately. It does seem that we have had plenty of rain.

My vegetable garden has completely gotten away from me. Last fall I planted winter rye in several beds.

It is rather remarkable that we have so many different plant zones on our tiny piece of land.

I’m the opposite of most people. I do not mind cool, wet days spent in a garden.

I’m not one to complain about the chilly, cloudy weather. It gives me less anxiety about all the tasks at hand.
