Pick Your Own at Scott’s
If we haven’t had a frost by the time you read this, you’ve still got a day or two to pick your own zinnias and dahlias at Scott’s Farm in Essex. For those of us that are fetutzed by flower arranging, just pick a fat bunch and stuff a vase at $7.50 per pound. These were just $5. Nice to know: buy a dozen sunflowers for $10, and every dime is donated to Helping Hands India, benefiting widows, orphans and a pastoral training center in Bangalore.
