The fennel fronds are great as an aromatic for fresh seafood, add flavor to a salad, and also make a wonderful tea!

If anyone is around on Thursday, there’s an open house at the Westford Community Garden on Graniteville Road on Thursday from 4-6pm.  Come tour the 150 garden plots and enjoy some treats and performances!  

Have a great week everyone!
