Many of you have emailed us about the upcoming CSA session. If you can hang on for just couple more days we'll have our website updated with all the information you'll need. Also coming soon will be our revised growing list for the upcoming season. You'll see much of what we grew last year, but with many new and tasty additions. If you have any questions please feel free to email us at our new email addy: whittonfarms@live .com.
If you have any old clear jars that you're thinking of throwing out, hang on to those guys. We want to collect them for our seed storage for next year. It's a great way to recycle too. Bring them to us any market day and we'll put them to good use.
Good news, the Memphis Farmers Market will be opening April 18 this year! I don't know when the Memphis Botanic Garden Farmers Market opens, but when I find out I'll post it here.
After I'm finished blogging, Keith and I will begin organizing all of our seeds and plan our planting schedule for the several months. It's not too late to make a suggestion for what you'd like to see at the market this year so drop us a line when you can.
Also, if you want to plant a garden this year don't forget that we'll be selling heirloom vegetable transplants come March and April. We grow all of our veggies from seed. Don't be afraid to place an order now to be filled in the coming months. We can reserve the plants and schedule a special pick up day/location for those of you eager to get your garden in early. Oh, I should have a ton of tulips come March so be on the look out for tulip posts in the future & I mean big, french tulips too! :)
This week we got our first full crop of killer shiitake mushrooms and I must say they were delicious. We gave many sacks away to our respective families, and the rest we've already gobbled up. I'm usually not a big mushroom fan, but then again I've never had a fresh mushroom just off the log. It's a flavor that I now crave. We will be expanding our shiitake mushroom production come February so be on the look this spring for some mushrooms at the market. Slice them up, put a little real butter in a skillet, dash of white wine, sautee' for a bit and man oh man - what a tasty treat!
Hope everyone is well and having happy Sunday!
Peace out, we've got some planning to do! :)
