Martin's Farmstand:  Asparagus tips


This evening I cut the last asparagus for 2013. I have about 100 lbs of real short tips available at $2 a lb. (10 lb min) This is a good deal for freezing or pickling. I cut all the tiny spears on the last cutting and then shallow till the whole bed to set the weeds back. It feels good to straighen the back and put the asparagus cutting gear away.
We are opening tommorow (Wed.) for u-pick strawberries at 2 pm. I expect 2000 lbs of berries tommorow. The peak of berry season is in the next four pickings. The berry size will be getting smaller with each picking so fill you freezer in the next week. After tommorow the next picking is Saturday at 7 am. Daniel

ALFN Local Food Club:  Oups!


Oups!

Have you ever been so distracted by all the mouthwatering local food in your kitchen that you forgot to do something really important, like order more for next week? (Or send out the weblog out on time?) Me too! Don’t let tonight’s plate of Falling Sky’s chicken thighs braised with LRUF’s carrots next to Kellogg Valley’s squash sautéed with ANP’s fresh herbs distract you from the fact that there is more delicious food to be had. The Market closes tomorrow morning. Act now and anything listed could be yours.

A word to the wise- The hardworking folks at Arkansas Natural Produce are taking the next two weeks off. Stock up while you still can!

Shoestring Acres:  Week Six


Summer will be official by the weekend!
Veggies have not fully bounced back from the cool spring though, each week brings more veggies to the market.
The asparagus is winding down and so are strawberries. Zucchini and cucumbers are here and snow peas are on the horizon.
Thanks to all who returned bags last week supplies were low and I had no bags to put the next orders in.
Have errands to run so there may be some additions to the list if something yummy appears at the CO-OP.
Happy Ordering,
Helen Mgr

Tullahoma Locally Grown:  New Items!


Good Morning Everyone,
We have several new items on the market this week. Summer is coming on and so are the veggies.

Solace Farm has red inchelium garlic for sale.

Murari Farm has collards and kale on the market this week. And don’t forget to look under pet food for their wonderful milk products.

Frontier Farm has tomatoes, and Ferrell Farm has squash, broccoli, cabbage, onions and more.

Here’s a quick note from Dogwood Valley:

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has added several summer-flowering perennial plants, large herb plants, and nice hanging baskets to the market this week. There is still plenty of time to plant these well-rooted plants, grown in trade gallon pots for low transplant shock. Just keep them well watered, and they will add a lot of color to your summer garden right away.

Don’t forget about the delicious meats, eggs, breads, sprouts, lettuces, flowers and so much more!

Tullahoma Locally Grown Market

Have a great week and I’ll see you Thursday :-)
