Botanical Harmony Farm has plenty of duck eggs this week! Stock up for Easter baking or incredible soft or hard boiled eggs!

Linda from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse sends this cheery Springtime note:

It’s really coming spring at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse! Apparently, once the ball gets rolling, it’s not going to stop. The daffodils are past, and now the early perennials are taking their place. Imagine my surprise to find several blooms in the greenhouse, even though the weather is returning to more “seasonable” temperatures. The market software won’t let me feature all these bloomers, so here is the list for this week (with many more waiting their turn for next week):
Catchfly, Creeping Phlox (one color now, more coming), Primrose, Pulmonaria, and variegated Vinca. Please notice that they are all in very limited supply, which means if you want one of these specifically, you should place your order early. Also I have a decent selection of good strong herb plants, still small but ready to grow for you (Cat Mint, Greek Oregano, Peppermint, Salad Burnet, Chocolate Mint, Orange Mint, and others). Lastly, although not blooming, Lamb’s Ear and Valerian (Garden Heliotrope) are growing like crazy and would love to do so in your garden. Don’t forget our beautiful houseplants (a selection of potted ones and some really nice Wandering Jew hanging baskets). If there is anything specific you’d like for your spring garden, please let me know so I can be on the lookout for you.

So excited for gardening this year! Linda’s plant starts are hardy and always grow beautifully for me!

There will not be delivery ervice this week. We apologize for this inconvenience. Delivery returns next week!

Gracie Martin, MTSU journalism student and Quinn’s Mercantile employee came out last week to interview Tracey and Michael Raines (Frontier Family Farm) for a school project. The focus was on how unique our online market is for our community and we agree! Our market is so special and we appreciate Gracie using us as her subject! Can’t wait to see the interview and hopefully share!

Check out all the excited listings on our incredible market!

See ya on the porch!!

Market News

Good morning! Is everyone feeling this early Spring? Our farmers are carefully watching early crop already in the ground or greenhouses. Sprouted seeds are coming up and egg producers are happily laying again!

Botanical Harmony Farm has a few dozen duck eggs listed this week.

So far Sanders Bros. Coffee has offered only light and medium roasts, of which the Honduras Pacavita Organic has been a big hit. But now there is an option for those of you who like a dark roast! The Brazil Cafelandia micro-lot comes from a single farm and will be roasted dark to present a nutty, chocolatey coffee with a subtle red apple sweetness. A rich and complex cup!

If anyone wants to special order beef for Easter dinner, please check out Farrar Farm’s special orders. Quantities will be limited between now and Easter so get your orders in now.

Linda from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse sends this Springtime note:

The first blooms of spring are always a bit tricky to predict. I was watching my daffodil garden, as well as the weather report, and listed the Spring Daffodil Bouquets on the market last week. On Tuesday I had a few dozen flowers, but on Wednesday, it seemed that half the buds opened at once! They may only be available for three weeks because of early hot weather. I’d love for you to enjoy them along with me!

I’m starting to see buds here and there in the greenhouse too. It’s a bit early to set plants in the garden just yet, but these have been in an unheated house all winter, so they’re used to the temperatures. As soon as the weather gets nice enough for the gardener, these early beauties will be ready to go: Dwarf Coreopsis, Creeping Phlox, Pulmonaria, Primrose, and Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus). Most of these will be in bloom in the next two or three weeks. Watch the “Featured Products” at the top of the page to see what’s in bloom this week (but I can only list the five most recent; many of them will stay in bloom for many weeks.)

As a reminder, we appreciate when customers return containers for reuse! Thank you for being conscientious earth dwellers! WE love you!

There’s likely so much more on the market you may not have realized we have! Take a few moments to browse a new category today :)!

See ya on the porch!!
