Farm News of the Week

Molly from Kountry Vittles writes:

I added 3 new cupcakes this week, “Pumpkin Spice” with a pumpkin spice cream cheese icing, “Apple Harvest” with a light cinnamon cream cheese icing, and “Carrot Cake” with cream cheese icing.

(Bottom right is Lemon Bars.)

As we near the end of the growing season, several farmers are enlarging their offerings of fresh cut or dried herbs. This is a good time to buy a little extra and put it away for a short while. Solace Farm, Triple B Farm, Cheryl’s Neighborhood Garden, Knottynuffacres, and Dogwood Valley Greenhouse all have herbs for sale. Solace Farm and Triple B Farm also have herbal teas. Don’t forget the special herbal additions from Solace Farm and CS3 Farm under “Processed Foods.”

(top row) L to R: Fresh cut Greek Oregano from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse, Garlic Powder from Solace Farm, and Genovese Basil (fresh cut) from Knottynuffacres.

(bottom row) L to R: Dried Lemon Balm from Triple B Farms, Set of 4 Dried Herbs from Cheryl’s Neighborhood Garden, and Wolfberry Mint Shrub from CS3 Farms.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse news:

We still have plenty of nice fall blooming perennials, including the lovely species begonia, which is on a BOGO sale. Toadlily with its small intricately shaped blooms is still going strong, and the beautiful blue plumbago is spectacular! Also the first of the fall reblooming azaleas has suddenly popped some blooms this week. More colors of azaleas promise to follow shortly. The beautiful tall anemones are budding up nicely but taking their time about showing their colors.
