“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” Audrey Hepburn said that, and it’s one of the lovely quotes scattered around Little Fox Farm, the new farm stand and display garden that Nate and Erin McManus launched this spring at the north end of the Hogsback.

Last winter, Tim and I noticed a little cottage taking shape there and wondered what could it possibly be? As the winter went on and warmer weather started to arrive, other things happened in the space. A cool old truck showed up. Garden boxes were built. A fence sprung up along the driveway. A rock wall was built. And then plants began arriving.

It was so fun to see what new thing was happening every time we went by, and see the amazing business that’s grown there. As their truck says, “All things grow with love.”
