This news broke earlier in the week, but your blogger was in the midst of an awful viral infection and didn’t have the energy to write. Garden District has closed, which is such a bummer for me. Garden District is where I got my summer herbs, my Christmas tree, and presents for friends. I loved having it in the neighborhood. Unfortunately, after declaring bankruptcy in 2009, Joe Carmack, the owner, stated on the business’s website that it just didn’t make sense to go on.  Beyond the farmer’s market reopening, my favorite part of spring is always swinging by Garden District to pick up some plants. They will be missed.
