Cobble Hill Seedy Saturday draws huge crowd

Hordes of people flooded into Cobble Hill on Saturday and brilliant sun shone down on the 18th annual Seedy Saturday.

This event traditionally marks the beginning of spring for many gardeners, and people came out in droves to buy and trade seeds, plants, produce and tools.

This year, organizers doubled the number of vendors at the event, spreading them out into two buildings, the Cobble Hill Hall and the Stu Armour Hall.
