JUST IN FROM DOGWOOD VALLEY GREENHOUSE
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has added several nice houseplants to the listings. Available now are needlepoint ivy, cape primrose, wandering jews, and two colors of spider plants, all in 10" hanging baskets. We also have several very nice succulent planters and herb collection baskets for your table or windowsill. Panda plants and aloe vera plants would also be good additions to your winter indoor garden. All these need to stay inside until our frost-free date near the end of April, then will be happy to spend the summer on porch or patio.
We are also making decisions about spring offerings of flowering hanging baskets, vegetable plants in gallon pots, and 6 packs of bedding plants. If there is something special you would be interested in, please let us know by e-mail to email@example.com.
Jess Wilson of In Town Organics and Summer Fields sends the following message: I want to point out something very exciting that happened in 2014 – that was the opening of Three Oaks Rabbitry on Gudger Rd. in Sewanee. I have raised rabbits for our family and a few lucky others for the past ten years. These rabbits live in large cages that are moved daily to allow access to fresh grass and plenty of hopping room and sunshine when desired. My rabbits are fed oats and locally grown alfalfa hay. I could not sell these rabbits legally in the past because there was not a processing facility in the area. Erich Eichler was willing to do the work (and waiting) needed to change this. Last year his processing facility was inspected by the USDA and FDA for processing rabbits for legal sale in our area! I’m so excited to finally have a legal outlet for selling my rabbits. Three Oaks Rabbitry sells my rabbits as well as rabbits that Erich raises himself and you can purchase them on the market! Domestic rabbit is an incredibly lean, white meat that can be substituted for chicken in many recipes. Check out a favorite rabbit recipe from our family in the RECIPE section.
