Healthy, vigorous vegetable plants produce the most flavorful and bountiful harvests...

Give your garden plants the moisture and nutrients they need,
keep them weeded and harvest often for tasty, nutritous crops.

Paul Rogers visits Klem's

Paul Rogers visited Klem's on Saturday June 4th, 2011. Klem's gave away over 1,000 tomato plants and had a great kick off to the Farmer's Market. Our farmer's market runs every Saturday 9am-1pm through October 22nd. We have a great video of Paul explaining the difference between several popular varieties of tomato plants. We have posted on YouTube, and will add the link here. We also have some great pictures from the farmer's market on Flickr. My favorite finds from this week? Linabella's Pesto is one of my all time favorites. Pesto burgers, pesto on homemade pizza, or on grilled tuna. Also found a vendor with fresh sprouts! Cups of seeds or sprouted ready to eat sprouts are only $1.00! Love them, and they are so great fresh! Hope to see you this Saturday at the market!

A blogging we will go

Klem's was started in 1949 on route 9 in Spencer, MA. It was founded by John Klem as a Ford Tractor Dealership, we still sell tractors, but so much more. We are now a 75,000 square foot "department store" with everything from pets and supplies, hardware and sporting goods, to crafts, auto parts, clothing and footwear. Family owned and operated, we love being a part of the community. Every Saturday, starting June 4th, we will host a Farmer's Market in the field next to the store. The market runs from 9am until 1pm and you will be able to purchase locally grown produce, local farm raised meat, and many other locally made products. We hope that you enjoy this blog, as we post pictures, events, and info. We also hope that you will stop by the farmer's market and support local.
