Farewell, Farmstands!

Two local Hadley farmstands are disappearing -- have, in fact, already as the houses they were attached to are being put up for sale.
First, a basic stand that sold asparagus, strawberries, and holiday wreaths on North Maple (sold, already).
Second, the Garden of Delights that sold just about everything from starts to produce (corn, rhubarb, strawberries, squash, tomatoes, etcetera) on Rocky Hill Road by the intersection with East Street.
Both are farmstands I used to visit with some frequency, and I'll be sad to see them go.  Hopefully, the former Garden of Delights, with its double barns and large lot, will make a comeback....
Farewell, farmstands!
