This is it! This is the week to get your vegetable garden planted, if you have not yet done so. Just think...delicious, fresh, juicy, tomatoes in July - great for summer picnics and barbeques. How about crisp cucumbers in your salad? Or maybe this is the year you learn how to make your own pickles (recipe in next week's newsletter)?

Well, if you want to add more fresh vegetables to your diet, now is the time to plant them.

Stop in any of our local Clover's Garden Center locations for one of the largest selections around town of Arugula to Zucchini, and fresh herbs, from Basil to Thyme.

We have them ready for you to plant!

As an incentive, for one week only, we are offering you (our loyal e-news customer), a special "Buy one vegetable plant, Get One Free" (see coupon below for details).

Not sure how to take the spade in hand?
