April 2013

Hello Farm Friends,

Is it spring yet? The calendar said it was a few weeks ago, but so far Spring has not SPRUNG here in Middle Tennessee! Maybe this weekend is going to be the official kickoff to spring and some warmer weather and sunshine!

Is it just me or has it really been 5 months since I put out a newsletter? I am so sorry about the lack of communication. I have begun sending out a newsletter numerous times for it to fall by the wayside and be OLD NEWS by the time I could get it published. Being a mom to twins as well as two other boys, plus some other duties to boot keeps this momma busy. Hopefully we are going to get back on track beginning with this month��"WELCOME TO APRIL!

The berries in the hoophouses are blooming and have a few green berries on them. The colder temperatures this fall will push the strawberry harvest dates back a bit this spring, but still by the end of April we hope to have some berries available.

We are at the Franklin Farmers Market each Saturday from 9-12. Market hours will change probably in May when the "Summer Market" officially begins.

This winter we have been busy growing lots of nutrient dense greens and other root crops. It has been a good winter for the most part, no severe cold and Jim is happy to report that our hoophouse tomatoes are in as well as peppers, cucumbers and a few more of our warm season crops. That means the summer growing season has officially begun.

We have lots to look forward to this summer, like our garlic varieties, we have several types and varieties within those types. It should be interesting to say the least when harvest begins the first of June. You will have to try one of each just to figure out which one is your favorite!

I'm going to close now, so I can get this out while it is still April. Happy Spring! Thanks for all of your support of our farm and family this winter. We couldn't do this without you!

We have several ways you can get our produce during the Fall/Winter months. The Franklin Farmers Market on Saturdays, Stones River On-line Market, and Pickup at the Farm in Eagleville:

The Franklin Farmers Market is now open for the Winter Market. Winter hours are 9-12 each Saturday all winter long. Hours will change in May 8-1pm.

We will reopen for on farm pickup on Wednesday afternoons 3-6 when our spring berries begin to ripen.

Stones River Market is open for orders each Sunday through Tuesday with orders delivered to Murfreesboro on Wednesdays. This is a wonderful "market" for Murfreesboro where you can order from the comfort of your computer from many different farms, bakeries, etc and pickup in one location, just off the square in downtown Murfreesboro. For more information please visit Stones River Online Market.

Pa Bunks is now carrying Rocky Glade Produce in downtown Murfreesboro! For those of you who don't know Pa Bunks, it is quite cool! Corey Williams who owns it is one of the nicest folks you could ever hope to meet. He has a great variety of organic and natural products in his store including fresh produce, canned goods, ready to eat items, fresh locally made breads as well as sandwiches, fresh coffee and other drinks. If you are in the downtown area and need a break, go by Pa Bunks, grab a sandwich and drink and relax at Bunks! For more info visit Pa Bunks Organic Market.
