Software Glitch?


Apologies to our customers and growers. I did, indeed, open the market just before 5 p.m. Obviously, there was some kind of software glitch, and y’all didn’t receive it. So I sent it out again, and this time it worked. Happy ordering!

PORK SPECIAL FROM FOUNTAIN SPRINGS FARM
Again this week on the market is our ground pork and sausage special. They are both listed at FIVE 1-lb. packages for $20.00. That’s just $4.00 per pound for NON-GMO-fed, pasture-raised pork! Order them before they’re gone!

Also we have the Turkey Deposits on the market for people to order for Thanksgiving.
-———————————————————————————————————————————————————-
FROM DOGWOOD VALLEY GREENHOUSE
This strange spring weather continues, resulting in all the spring perennials blooming at the same time. The woodland and sun phlox, columbine, coreopsis, vinca, and catchfly are still glorious. Joining them in bloom this week are the astilbes, early carnations, Sweet Williams (dianthus), Foam Flower & Jacob’s Ladder, as well as a few early azaleas. We also have lots of different herbs and several nice varieties of hanging baskets. You can definitely set these perennials in your garden now, although I would wait a couple more weeks to add any annuals you might want.

We will soon have tomato and pepper plants in several varieties. It’s a bit early to plant them now, but you are welcome to email me at tnhomeschooler@yahoo.com for a list of varieties and to reserve your vegetable plants.
-———————————————————————————————————————————————————-
GROUND BEEF SPRING SPECIAL FROM DOUBLE A FARM
For a limited time only, we are offering lean ground beef in a bulk package of 5.5+ pounds for $27.45. That’s $4.99 per pound! You get the same great beef but at a better “limited time” price!!
-———————————————————————————————————————————————————-
BROWN’S HOLLAR CREATIONS will be bringing extra eggs this week to the market. They will be in the cooler and you may leave your money there in the envelope.
-————————————————————————————————————————————————————
