Cooler temperatures means it’s time to think about feeding our feathered friends over the winter. An easy way to do this is with suet cakes. We will have some on the extras table all season for only $1 each.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: The fall reblooming azaleas just keep on blooming at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse, with 4 colors available now. I’m not really sure what the lower nighttime temperatures this week will do to blooms, but I can tell you that these sweet things are winter hardy, and that fall is the very best time to plant these, as well as perennial plants. Fall planting allows roots to develop and grow strong as they soak up the soil moisture while not having to deal with the beating sun of summer. Strong fall root growth means great winter bud set and fabulous spring blooms. So this fall you might add a few of these beautiful reblooming azaleas to your garden, or you might think about a few perennial plants, to get a jump on your beautiful spring garden.

Pre-ordering is now open for our beautiful Christmas wreaths and kissing balls. We will be able to make only a limited number of each (good help is hard to find!), and when they’re gone, they’re gone. Pre-order price will be in effect till Nov 15, so reserve yours now. We will fill orders as received, beginning about Dec 1. We will also have pink Christmas cacti and several colors of African violets in bloom for Christmas, and you may also reserve those now if you prefer. Just drop me an email to let me know if you want one or more of the potted plants, because they’re not currently available on the market.

Looking forward seeing you on “The Porch” at Quinn’s Mercantile Wednesday.

Farm News of the Week


Amy and Caleb Rae own a unique farm on a reclaimed stripmine in Coalmont, TN, up on the beautiful Monteagle Mountain. Here they have a menagerie including chickens, geese, turkeys, ducks, Scottish Highland cattle, goats, alpacas, sheep, a miniature horse, bees, dogs, and cats. Amy recently posted a couple of photos from her ramblings with her three boys. She writes:
The downside of living on an old coal strip mine is that the soil is almost nonexistent, it’s really just a big, smooth pile of shale rocks and gravel covered with shale-powder masquerading as dirt. The upside is that shale is full of fossils! The boys have an extensive collection, it’s truly about as easy as just picking up the nearest rock to find a leaf-print fossil.



Fermentation Workshop
Sun, Oct 21



Don’t forget to place your preorders of Ohio Stoneware, starters, and scobys to ensure availability.

Please RSVP and purchase your ticket at https://shortmountaincultures.com/product/workshop/
