It’s time for cleaning!

No shirt, no open-toed shoes..and no more plants!!  It’s getting hot in here, so we are clearing out the greenhouse!  This Saturday is our final day of plant sales.  We still have plants waiting to go into good gardens.  We also have some clearance items available.  Saturday only from 8:30 to 2:30.

We will also have freshly picked strawberries from Black Diamond Farms for sale, $5 per quart and Jan Banks farm fresh eggs for $4.50 per dozen.   They all sold out quickly last weekend so come early if you are trying to snag those!

Dear Friends,

Can you believe I turned 13 years old this year (that makes me 91 in people years!)? Well, don’t expect to see me hoofin around in a wagon, just because I’m getting older doesn’t mean I’ve lost my mojo.  I’m actually feeling quite spiffy these days.  A little pain pill every other day doesn’t hurt, either!

My only regret is now that I’m famous… (facebook -check, website -check,  picture in Chevy Chaser-check, company logo -check….TMZ- not yet) … I’ve put on a few pounds.  Goodbye skinny jeans.  Hello photoshop.

Here is a pic of my new house Mike built for me before winter came.  Even a gruffy guy like me gets cold once in a while.  Thank goodness winter wasn’t too bad though.  Because I can’t hear and darned if my eyes are kicking out on me, too – he built me a plexiglass house so I can have a lot of light in there and still stay warm.  It rocks!  Speakin of rocks. you know what they say…dogs who live in plexiglass houses shouldn’t throw bones!!!!  Taaa-daaaaaaa!

Not only is my new house energy efficient, but I also have my very own rooftop garden.  Not a Carloftis design but hey, a guys gotta start somewhere.  Really, is there any other dog on the planet as cool as me???  Ok, maybe a few…Mom told me to say that anyway.

Besides the social media Pete-storm and the new house, everything else is same old, same old.  The greenhouse is really crazy… plants everywhere, barely any room to stretch out for a good nap.

Hopefully you guys will come and buy them all so I can have my nice, cozy sunroom back again!  Don’t forget the Plant Sale dates, starting next weekend:

Saturdays, May 5th, 12th, and 19th, from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm (while supplies last).

You can check out our plants on my new web site, www.forpetessakefarm.com/products .  We’re not printing brochures anymore but Mom says you can print the product pages if you’d like.  Kermit was wrong…it is easy being green!!!

Also, Mom said to remind you about parking and paying:  you can park along road side and gravel driveway and you can pay with cash or check (of course, I never turn down a Spalding’s doughnut or Starbucks coffee, hahaa).

And last but most importantly, I will be here for pics, pawgraphs, bellyrubs, headpats, ball-catching, back-scratching, forehead kisses, hand licks (only yours, not mine-gross!), doughnut frisbee, ear rubs,  or maybe even a burping contest (heads up, I’m the heavyweight belt holder for this one).

Hope to see you there!

-Pete

Editors note:  Pete writes many letters, however we agree to publish a few pages throughout the year.  He was dogged by the fact that many of you just met him and hadn’t read some of his earlier writings.  So below are links to his letters from our previous year’s brochures.  We hope you find them informative, funny, and furry, just like the beloved author himself!
