Fieldstone Farm Market is ready to break ground next week in Marion. Owner, Arnold Johnson has all the permits in place and is hoping to start pouring the foundation on Monday, weather permitting. This will be the exciting start to the building process with an opening date set for Labor Day.
Fieldstone Farm Market will carry local fresh fruit and vegetables from local and regional farms and will cater to the local market. It will also include an ice cream window. Johnson is planning on carrying local products and a variety of ready to eat items such as fresh cut fruit cups, fruit baskets, fruit and vegetable platters, honey, jams, jellies, local cheeses, eggs, milk and maple syrup.
The idea is to keep the vegetables and fruit loose rather than pre-packaged. Johnson has worked for a big Boston-area fruit and vegetable distribution company for 30 years before starting this venture, so he has plenty of experience in this industry.
Fieldstone Farm Market will be open seven days a week, 9am to 7pm with the ice cream window open until 9pm. Johnson is committed to keeping the premises neat and clean and fairly quiet for the neighbors. He hopes it becomes the popular place to get all your fresh fruits and vegetables. Look for its progress in the months ahead.

ORR put on lockdown following threat
MATTAPOISETT — A threat made via the Internet had Old Rochester Regional Junior High and High School on lockdown for about an hour this afternoon.
Police from all three towns responded to the school around noon, after ORR apparently received a report that there was a gunman on school grounds.
Sgt. Small of the Rochester Police Department was stationed at the main entrance to the school on Route 6 said it was not known if the threat was a hoax or not.
Several cars stopped along Route 6 as police officers secured the school.
“They were told to stay in place. They’re under the desks,” reported David Lizotte, a parent who was in communication with his high school-aged daughter.
He and his wife stood on Route 6 as they waited for more information on the situation. Lizotte said he has a son in the junior high as well, but he had only received a text from his daughter.
“As soon as it happened, I got a text from her. We wanted to come down right away,” he said.
A number of officers were already at the school for an anti-drunk driving presentation when the threat came in.
During the approximate hour that the school was on lockdown, officers with high powered firearms were stationed at all doors. Around 1 p.m., the all clear was given and officers were told they could leave their posts at the school entrances.
The school was one of several dozen in the state that received a threat today.
More information about the incident will be released at a press conference to be held outside the Mattapoisett Police Department at 4 p.m. today.

It’s time for Spring Planting. Now is the time buyers are looking for houses and nothing enhances a home’s curb appeal than Spring landscaping. Try some new ideas. A trellis is always a welcome addition to any yard. You can buy a nice wooden trellis at any Lowe’s or Home Depot. You can plant different flowers to twine around it such as ivy, passion flower or for something new try scarlet runner beans. They grow quickly and have hummingbird-friendly blooms which become edible pods and shellable beans later.
Large pots on the porch can add a splash of color. You can plant many annuals such as gerber daisies, pansies, verbena, or geraniums and add a few greens also to fill out the pot.
Take stock of your perennials. Do they need thinning? Some plants can grow out of control and take over the beds, such as helianthros, chives, or hostas. Thin them out and keep them controlled. Try some perennials which always deliver beauty and don’t spread so readily. Some of these include lupins, astilbe, peonies, or hydrangeas. These come in a variety of colors and come back year after year with very little work.
Keep the beds mulched weed-free and mulched and this will contribute to the beautiful look and keep the soil moist.
Don’t forget a veggie garden. You can do some vegetables such as tomatoes, green beans, lettuce or herbs in a relatively small space. You can put some in raised beds or pots if space is an issue. This is a great project to keep the kids interested and eating healthy.
You can start your flower planting now and your vegetable garden by the end of May. Enjoy your summer with a great start now. Nurseries and Home Depot or Lowe’s are brimming with fresh flowers, shrubs, trees and perennials. Now is the time to cash in on the great sales and savings.
