In addition to being stocked full of fall plantings and accouterments -- from pansies to shrubs, mums to bales of hay and corn stalks -- our neighborhood garden center Old City Green has pumpkins galore! A must-see pumpkin is a massive one that could be yours if you guess its circumference ($5 entry fee, proceeds go to Shaw Main Streets). If you win the great pumpkin, Old City Green will deliver it to your home for free (your back will appreciate it...).
Old City Green's fall hours are Tuesday through Thursday, 9 to 3 by appointment, Thursday and Friday 3 to 7, Saturday 9 to 6, and Sunday 11 to 5.
