The Reading Greenhouse

With only about 600 people in our little Vermont town, the center of town is pretty small. We have a town hall with a post office inside, a general store, a small but beautiful library, an elementary school, and a greenhouse/farm market. That's it people. There used to be a hardware store, but the owner decided one day he was done, so he locked up and never came back to clean it out. The store still sits there, packed with inventory as if the doors might open back up for business tomorrow, and it has been that way for almost ten years. Behind the hardware store is a huge space stacked up to the windows with all manner of old stuff (and to me old stuff = treasure). I crane my neck to see if I can make out what goodies might be stacked close enough to the windows for me to get a good look every time we pass by.

But all of this is besides the point. The point is that I was completely blown away by our little greenhouse/farm market today when we stopped by today to pick up a few veggies to plant in our new garden. I have never seen the Reading Greenhouse at this time of year, and I am so glad I had my camera with me because this beautiful spot is definitely worth sharing. The store is made up of a number of greenhouses that you can wander through, and the soft white light inside the tents mixed with the aroma of flowers is just magic.

As if that weren't enough, the greenhouse also carries a great selection of wines, local cheeses, fruit and veggies. If you ever find yourself in Reading, VT during the spring or summer, do yourself a favor and check out the Reading Greenhouse at 786 VT Rt. 106, Felchville, VT.

*Note: This is not a sponsored post. I just really like the Reading Greenhouse :)


  1. What beautiful photos! Wish I could snap up some of those plants. ^_^

  2. We went on a driving tour of New England this past October. (First time in the Northeast.) I think we were in that area .. stopped at Jenne Farm to take pics (like probably everyone else who visits ;-)

    I wondered then .. is it pronounced "reed"ing or "red"ing? Beautiful area .. and beautiful pics.

  3. Wendy -- you got it! Jenne Farm is in Reading. Isn't that a beautiful spot? It's pronounced Red-ing, as in the color :)

  4. Can I ask what kind of camera you use??? I'm hoping to buy a new camera this month and love your photos

  5. Fowburrow Vintage -- thanks for checking out the blog! Just looked at your etsy shop & it is lovely. Added you as a favorite :) I use a Nikon D300 which is a beginner's model when you start to get into the nicer DSLR cameras. Good luck & thanks for the comment!
