South Jersey's cold winter weather continued into spring and, because of this, many farmers say that they're at least one to three weeks behind on their crops. Southern states such as Florida and Georgia are finishing out their growing seasons at their normal times, but northern states such as New York and Pennsylvania are getting an even later start than South Jersey due to even harsher conditions.

Mark it on your calendars! Saturday, September 9 from 10AM-1PM at the Merchantville Farmers Market, Safe Kids of Southern New Jersey will be performing Car Seat Inspections for Merchantville Residents. Come out and have your car seats inspected by certified Car Seat technicians. I Look forward to seeing you all there!
