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!
What a nice day for a fall market!
Although Bain Home Gardens was not a vendor, we had to come and show our support and boy we are glad we did. It was my pleasure to hold the sweetest baby goat from Avalon Farms. One day we will have our own – until then petting will have to suffice!
We added to our Food Preservation education by attending the very informative class hosted by Mrs. Melody Forsythe-Jeschke! There are just some things you cannot learn on Google or YouTube. Tapping into the the years of knowledge and expertise of those around you is ALWAYS best.
This class is in line with others that we at Bain Home Gardens have recently been engaged in. Shortly we will have our Cottage Food Law Certificate which will enable us to expand our offerings to our Market Family.
This week we are happy to add our Bain Home Garden Green Mustards to the market. Funny thing is the cold weather hasn’t stopped our Oriental Yard Long Beans from being productive! So look for them again this week – from our family to yours!
HAWKINS HOMESTEAD: Hello Market Friends! Guess what we’ve got?!?! Salad and lots of it! Are you as excited as we are about our organic salad blends coming back? Let’s all pause for a happy dance! That was so fun!
Our lettuce is growing well. We don’t have enough to put on the Market yet but we have a good start. We will let you know when it’s ready. Until next week…..
Now for a second dance….we finally have some wonderful soaps to offer you. Good and healthy plus made with the very best ingredients! We even have some unscented for all our folks with allergies! Happy dance pause again! We couldn’t be more excited! Oh and did we tell you that one of those is pumpkin spice?!?! Yes!! So grab them while you can! Until next week….
HORTONS FARM: Thank you for all the kind thoughts and prayers for us this last week. WE SURVIVED! There were some challenges for sure (like the well pump acting up) but managed to work through them and are thankfully back to our own crazy mixed up kind of normal. The Mr. and Koda’s time was up and they surprised me around lunch on Friday. The timing was perfect as it made it much easier to prepare for today’s Fall Farmer’s Market.
