We use the word “Sustainable” over “Organic” because you can grow organic without being sustainable, but you cannot be sustainable without utilizing organic practices.
This Week’s Newsletter:
Happy Labor Day!
Labor Day is normally summer’s last hurrah. We grill, we take short trips, we spend time with family. . . . and this year we’re preparing for a hurricane! So in the spirit of safety we’re here’s a great LIST of items to weather a hurricane.
Being in the south there’s a good chance you have many of them already on hand that may or may not have been hanging around from previous storms. Reglardless we hope you and yours “weather” “Dora the Explorer” well.
For those of you interested in Grier Acres Watermelons (mentioned below), be sure to contact them through our www.facebook.com/groups/MarketatDothanDiscussion page.
Bella Eden has several lovely new soaps listed this week.
A hearty thank you to everyone who returned and brought recycled jars for Bella W’s goat milk this week. We’re getting good reports about how much folk’s pets like it. It is listed under pet products.
We’ll have Kat’s Cook Books available again next Friday for purchase for anyone who is interested. A big thank you to the folks who purchased and donated this week. She is deeply touched by your kindness.
THIS WEEK’S GROWER NOTES
We have the best Growers in the Wiregrass! Please learn more about them on our Grower Page.
GRIER ACRES: Greetings from Jeannie and Harry. We are doing great but busy busy. Jeannie started a new job Monday and we have shifted things a bit with our hobby farm. Fortunately we are at the end of a growing season and things are on automatic pilot. We will continue to have tomatoes, bell pepper and okra we hope until turns cool. We have some ghost peppers, habaneros, thai peppers, and eggplant growing. Trying to get Harry to part with hot peppers is not easy. If interested I’ll try and get him to part with a few. Our watermelons without chemicals have finally started maturing-thanks to those of you who purchased our watermelons. We pray they were sweet like the ones we had. We will have probably have about 7 more before the end of summer/September. Due to some travel we will probably not be able to come to market Friday 9/7/18. We will be back the following week 9/13/18.
When we start with winter garden if anyone has suggestions we have quite a good size of area to plant. If anyone has any suggestions for things to plant with easy maintenance we would love to know. We have quite a bit of deer on property and now have electric fencing encircling with the human sachets. This has helped with their destruction of our garden.
Happy labor day to you all and prayers the hurricane doesn’t affect anyone adversely.
DANNY’S GREENS: Danny’s salad blend is relisted in limited quantities.
HORTON’S FARM: We have been so thankful for the last couple of cool mornings. It definitely promises nicer temperatures to come . . . we’re just not so sure about having a hurricane deliver them! Regardless we’ve been spending more time outdoors and are hopeful to get some of our infastructure that Michael took out restored soon. A new she shed/honey house is planned for Ros as well. That operation is long overdue for its own space and now it’s just a matter for the contractor to show up! It’s one of the reasons we’ve not had some of our regular products listed.
We would love to hear from you! If you have a favorite recipe, want to write a product review, have an idea or request for an article or information, let us know! You can reply to this newsletter or write email@example.com.
