BAIN HOME GARDENS: Market Friends,
How are you all? We sure hope this cool weather finds you warm and snuggly this beautiful evening.
Our okra plants WILL NOT DIE! We have been keeping a select few pods on the stalk to save seeds for next year but even the smaller plants just refuse to give up! This would not be issue if we were not cramped for space. So today they were pulled up with an assist by Mr. Duke. Here at Bain Home Gardens everyone earns their keep. Working together to bring home grown goodness from our family to yours!
HAWKINS HOMESTEAD: Well guys, it’s happened. Fall is definitely upon us! The temperature is all over the place and it has definitely gotten cold at night. So cold in fact, that we turned our heat on at night for the first time last week. Of course with the weather changing, we want to make sure that everyone is taken care of so we’ve been checking to make sure our birds are snug outside in the big coop. We gave it a good scrubbing this past weekend and put some extra bedding in there to make sure everyone is nice and warm.
With the addition of cool weather and shorter days, the hens have gone on hiatus. Sad, but true. I will speak to you guys more about this in the next few weeks.
Thank you to everyone who tried out our basil pesto! We hope you enjoyed it. That was the last of our beautiful basil. For now we are concentrating on cool season vegetables, turning over beds, and saving seeds for next year.
HORTONS FARM: Some of you may know that we have been undergoing barn renovations in an effort to streamline the various things we do up here in beautiful Echo, AL. Today the Mr. and I mapped out a plan to include a combination kitchen/storage she-shed space for Ros. This means all the honey extraction, containers, pouring, storage, making candles, soaps, lip balms, creating new products, etc, etc, etc, can be moved OUT OF THE HOUSE. Hallelujah!
MARY’S PEEPS: I am so sorry for all the cancelled orders and not being there for all my customers in the past couple months, as I care for each and every one of you. It has been some bad times for me health wise. I have had some serious and difficult procedures, and only time will staighten them out. I keep hoping for thngs to go back to normal, and God willing they will. Your prayers are always welcome and appreciated. Thank you all and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. Maybe 2018 will bring health and hope for a new year. Mary Dale Peeples. (editor’s note: Please keep this dear lady in your prayers for health and healing!)
Richter Farms: Wishing all our wonderful customers-friends a Very Happy Thanksgiving! May you have a blessed time with family and friends! Love and hugs, Viki Richter
