It seems like it was just yesterday that we planted 2700 strawberry plants, but they already need weeding. I’ve learned that there are certain weeds that are winter hardy and they just like hanging out with the berry plants all winter long. Weeding makes for a good time to listen to a book. The current “weeds” are watermelon seedlings and thorny amaranth which would die on their own if there was ever a hard freeze. We’ll start weeding them anyway.
Our sweet potatoes are in the best shape ever. They are washed and ready to go. We’ve given literally a half ton to the Nashville Food Project. I hope that their recipients (and cooks) don’t tire of the taters.
Wedge Oak Farm will have a limited number of turkeys available for Thanksgiving. These are locally grown heritage turkeys. You will need to pick them up at their farm in Lebanon or at the Richland Farmers’ Market. You can contact Wedge Oak for size and price at: email@example.com Unfortunately, I will be out of town that week at the beach in N. Captiva, Florida. I believe that’s 41 days, if my math is correct.
Chestnuts from Caney Fork Farm will be available this week. Here’s a link on how to cook them: https://www.thespruceeats.com/how-to-roast-chestnuts-1808310
The Bloomy Rind is back this week with butter, Cowboy Coffee cheese and other delights.
Lots of fine meat items from Wedge Oak and Bear Creek Farms.
Dozen Bakery cookies and breads, eggs, granola, honey, and coffee are all in abundance.
You have until Tuesday night to place your order.
Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!
