New Orleans bound...

Well it’s been awhile since I’ve had a weekend off, so I decided to head south this weekend for a little family fun and relaxation.  I’m New Orleans bound to take in some college football; Louisville vs Southern Mississippi. Kenny and the rest of our crew will be conducting business as usual at the market, please be sure and stop by for your fresh fruits and veggies.

Weather permitting we will have plenty available this weekend…we had a slight scare this morning with the 29 degree temperatures. Kenny assessed the gardens and was happy to report no frost damage thus far.

We will have loads of fall/winter squashes available… spaghetti, acorn, butternut, etc… Also available this Saturday:  fresh green beans, potatoes, okra, green and golden zucchini, yellow summer squash, Swiss chard, kale, cucumbers, “candy” onions, bell peppers, cabbage, jalapenos, mixed hot peppers, pablono peppers, sweet banana peppers, cherry tomatoes and sweet potatoes. Turnips and spinach will also be available, also broccoli and cauliflower  may be ready by this weekend.

Tomatoes…. we still have them and several varieties are still available. We also still have some canning tomatoes available on a pre-order basis only… be sure to place your order if you are wanting to make homemade salsa, pasta sauce or your favorite recipes.

We are now picking apples…  Golden and Red Delicious apples will be available as well as some Mutuz. We had a windfall of Asian Pears this year and will have a few more available this Saturday. Remember we usually sell out early when it come to fruit…so come early or pre-order to have your fruit and veggies ready for pick up.

Please note all pre-orders must be received by noon on Thursday this week, only those orders will be filled this week due to my absence. Jennifer, my niece, has been helping me all summer and will have your order ready when you arrive on Saturday.

Don’t forget we have farm-fresh, free-range eggs available; pick some up at the market Saturday.

Thanks for your patronage,

Val & Kenny
