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,
Like us, we hope you are thoroughly enjoying the nice fall breeze that appears more and more these days. It certainly makes the garden work more pleasant.
Speaking of which, garden work has included much cleaning of late. Jarod finalized a BIG project, Thursday which opens the door for even more progress! We are so thankful to have such a hard worker dedicated to our cause!
We have found many cool gifts while cleaning. These include volunteer Basil plants of many varieties, self-seeded Mizuna Mustards, and to top it all off – Jelly Melons!
Jelly Melon has many names: horned melon, kiwano, hedged gourd, melano, etc. It is primarily used as a snack or salad. The taste has been compared to a combination of banana and passionfruit or a combination of banana, cucumber, and lime. Strange right?! Thus the appeal for us! There are several of these on the vine and currently we are unsure if they will make it to maturity with cooling night temperatures. You will be happy to know that IF they do, we will be making them available to our market family! Stay tuned.
Bringing the a taste of the new & exotic – from our family to yours!
SMART DOC RESOURCES We are up and running again. Six days without power or water! Yikkees. Some of the hydroponic veggies and herbs survived but we had to redo much of our supply.However, we should have our microgreens, lettuce and kale for the 27th! More pics and info later. We also hope to have a good supply of herbs (especially basil) and now checking out the pecans and walnuts. WE WILL be marketing our CBD oil and products. All 20% off retail price. CBD oil is used for a variety of maladies including pain, anxiety and depression.and lots more. As most of you all know, I am a DC, MD and a medical writer/researcher so you can check out the studies and info on my website ;http://smartdocresources.com and I welcome all questions. As in any supplement/herb – it is always good to be on the side of caution and do your research. I have also checked out many of the products on the market, so you can feel safe assured I only suggest the best. Reviews can also been seen on the website. Hope everyone is back to normal. Blessings Doc V
That’s me, my daughter and son-in-law enjoying the view in Portland, Maine.
We really enjoyed our trip up the New England coast and into Canada. So much to see and history to learn. The leaves were turning and the waves were crashing on rocky coastlines. Even had our first poutine! Definitely not South Alabama food or landscape. Now back to reality.
The farm came through the storm without any significant damage. I think the cover crop worked as a windbreak for the kale and broccoli plants. The Asian green seeds we started in the aquaponics look great. (That little experiment worked! Yay!) The spinach seeds apparently didn’t like the weather at all, so I’ll be re-planting those along with more radishes and turnips.
HAWKINS HOMESTEAD: Hello Market Friends,

So take the time to nourish yours with our body butters and oils! Available on the Market now so get them while you can. See you next week!
