The market is open and ready for your orders this week! I know that some seasonal markets opened yesterday and that’s great! Two weekly chances to buy local instead of going to a chain that sells from larger corporations. We work hard for you year-round and appreciate the support!
First, home delivery won’t be available for the short-term. I apologize for this inconvenience!
Now, on to the really yummy part of the letter:
The Krafty Kupboard is fully stocked with all of your favorite foods and Cilantro-Lime Black Bean Hummus is BACK! She also has several new items this week..
Sweet Beet Hummus
Spicy Cornbread Mix
Buckwheat Pancake Mix
Organic, all-natural, wheat and gluten-free available!
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has all sorts of beauties for your mother this Mother’s Day. We have lots of perennials for her sunny or shady garden, but we also know that some mothers don’t enjoy gardening (although we don’t really understand that… lol). Maybe your mom has a nice herb garden that could use a few of our additions, or maybe she’d enjoy snipping a fresh potted herb to enhance her culinary creation. Possibly she’d like to add a couple of groundcovers, ferns, or azaleas in the woodland around her home.
Maybe your mom enjoys houseplants more than garden plants. We have blooming pink “holiday” cacti (AKA Christmas cacti, but in bloom now), and just four very special African violets in full bloom. I have given good reliable instructions in the descriptions to keep both of these in extended bloom, and will always be glad to answer questions via email. I will be glad to wrap the pots of both of these, for a charming Mother’s Day gift.
Surely your mom would enjoy our new Spring Garden Bouquets. These are small bouquets, about a foot from tabletop to tallest bloom, and will be a delightful addition to any spring dining table or end table. I have vases in several colors, so give me an idea of your preference in the comments when you order.
And if you really can’t choose the perfect gift for your mom this Mother’s Day, please consider giving her a gift certificate from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse, so that she can select the plants that will best suit her situation.
One last thing: I’m going to revise my advice about tomato and pepper plants. Our recent nights in the 30’s and low 40’s have kept our garden soil unseasonably cool. The summer vegetables will do much better if you wait to set them out after Mother’s Day. The days are very pretty, but the nights have not been. I have both tomatoes and vegetables available this week, but will be glad to hold plants for you and deliver in a couple weeks. Place your order anytime, and specify a delivery date, to reserve your choice of tomato varieties and green bell peppers.
A huge thank you to Michael Raines of Frontier Family Farms for taking the wheel of the pickup while we work out some kinks! Also, thank you to Linda Reed of Dogwood Valley Greenhouse for staying and keeping Michael straight ;). Much love to both of you!
