If you have already placed an order this week, we thank you. Feel free to place a second order if you see something in this letter that you missed. Also please be sure to read the section of the page entitled “Important Ordering and Pickup Information.”
Pick up your order in either Manchester or Tullahoma, and let us know via the drop-down menu which location you prefer for pickup. Your location may change from week to week as you prefer.
Farm News of the Week
Pure apple cider is here from the Altamont Mennonites, listed under “Processed Foods.” They have also added their delicious carrots in the “Vegetables” category.
Frontier Family Farms has some strawberries, and the spinach probably is in for fall (it depends on whether it bolts in this extreme heat).
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse news:
What beautiful fall weather! Perfect time for planting perennials! It’s been really dry, and I still don’t see rain in the forecast, so you will need to water-water-water! But the weather is great and the ground still nice and warm, which will encourage plants to put down good strong roots. These new roots will help them to come through the winter in fine shape, and bloom profusely next season.
New bloomers this last week or so include: Anemones in both white and a beautiful deep rose, and Turtlehead, aptly named for its very unusual flower shape. But the star of the show has to be the fall-blooming Azaleas, just beginning this last week. One of the shorter pinks is now in bloom (listed with throat markings), and will reliably bloom again in spring. Another is showing buds, and I think will be a deeper pink, but time will tell. It might be listed next week.
