Broad Bay plant, bake sale May 24
Waldoboro — Canby thornless raspberry canes, variety six-packs of heirloom tomatoes, and packs of oh-so-fragrant sweet peas are among the many items that will be for sale at Broad Bay United Church of Christ’s Plant and Bake Sale Saturday, May 24. The sale runs from 8:30 a.m. to noon, with coffee/tea and breakfast goodies available for shoppers.
While digging was slowed by the later than usual emergence of many perennials, the sale will still feature a large selection of hostas, including Striptease, Guacamole and White Feather, and many varieties of day lilies. There will be perennials for sunny locales, for shade gardens and some that make great ground covers. Some bushes, including lilac, as well as small trees — Japanese red maple, balsam fir and others — will be for sale.
Gardeners are growing a large selection of vegetable and flower six-packs. Tomato varieties include Supersweet 100, Brandywine, Roma, San Marzano, Bloody Butcher and Mortgage Lifter. Among flower seedlings are cosmos, cleome, delphiniums, alyssum, and about a dozen varieties of sweet peas, including Old Spice and April Showers. Basil, dill, thyme, mint, lovage and rosemary are among the many herbs that will be for sale.
The bake sale will feature cookies, pies, bars, brownies, cupcakes and breads.
Also for sale will be gently used gardening books as well as other gardening items.
Broad Bay Congregational UCC is at 941 Main St.
