THIS WEEK’S GROWER NOTES
We have the best Growers in the Wiregrass! Please learn more about them on our Grower Page.
BAIN HOME GARDENS: Marketeers!
We missed you guys! We have, however, really enjoyed our break thus far! Many times we focus on resting our bodies and minds thus rejuvenating them. We personally think it is even more vital to renew our spiritual selves! This weekend we’ve done just that and are ready to face the world!
This week on the market you will notice our various kale varieties are not listed. We expect it to stay that way for a few weeks. They have been cut back and we will kindly allow them some time to “rejuvenate” as well. However, our Soybeans, Basil, Aloe Vera, Rosemary, Thyme, Summer Salad Blend, & Sprouts continue to be available for the pickin’!
This year has been ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Truly. We have been on this Market for over a year now and we have learned so much! We have grown new & exotic plant varieties, gotten to know you Marketeers & your endearing stories, learned so much from and have forged beautiful relationships with our fellow growers, and finally we feel worthy of the badge – grower. We are looking to the fall growing season with bright eyes. New plots are being tilled & prepared for even further expansion this 2018 Fall growing season, thus enabling us to proudly continue bringing quality organic produce from our family to yours!
HAWKINS HOMESTEAD: Hello Market Friends! Is it really August already?!?! Is anyone else trying to figure out where the whole year went? Seems like time has flown by so fast. Well we for one are ready to get through August and into the later part of the year. You know where the humidity loosens its grip on us and the temperatures actually cool down.
On our urban farm we are still canning pear jam. Our most favorite flavor is Lemon Ginger Pear. I love a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but I don’t usually like a lot of either on my bread. With this jam, well let’s just say that I had to go back and add more!
Have you checked out our website lately? Each month we post a special report of all that we have “growing now.” If you haven’t taken the time to check it out, please do! Besides our Facebook page, it’s a wonderful way to stay up to date on what we’re doing. Plus we know not everyone is on social media. You can find the link here:
As always we thank everyone for their continued support of us and the Market. Until next time.
YARD EATIN’S: is taking a short August break August 3 and 10 but will return on August 24 with their granola and other new items. My first grandchild is arriving in early August, and I’ll be in Texas waiting for, and then helping with the bundle of joy.
