A Saturday Fieldtrip: Shades of Green & Pearl Brewery Farmers Market

Saturday and Sunday mornings on a local am radio station I listen Bob Webster’s local organic garden program. Bob Webster also has a nursery in San Antonio called Shades of Green. This past Saturday I went to Shades of Green to attend a canning seminar. I have wanted to check out his nursery for a long time now and I finally had my chance.

I arrived early enough to get a good seat for the seminar and have a chance to wonder around the nursery grounds. I loved the boardwalks throughout the nursery and the little nooks and cranny’s, and vignettes here and there.

Shades of Green will celebrate 30 years in business tomorrow. I enjoyed my time there and will definitely go back.

After the seminar I went downtown to see the Pearl Brewery Farmers Market.

The Pearl Brewery’s Farmers Market is relatively new. I am going to estimate that it is less than two years old.

All in all in it was a good outing. I learned a few good things from the canning seminar, saw a great nursery and checked out a local farmers market.
