News From Our Growers:

Trinity Rose Oberhasli Dairy Goats: The time has arrived that the ladies have been busy producing delicious Raw Pet Goat Milk. Coming soon: Cheese and Kefir.

Oakview Farm: baby greens are starting to grow up! Our Salad Greens mix has different varieties of young Kale, Collards, and Lettuce greens and are a delicious base for a healthy salad. We also have turkey, duck and free range chicken eggs. If you haven’t tried a turkey egg, now’s the time! They are very rich; wonderful over-easy with toast or on a burger.

Quarter Spring Farm: We have several great smelling goat milk soap for you. With all the extra hand washing we are all doing, goat milk soap is a great alternative to help keep those hands moisturized. We have replenished our supply of chicken cuts and pieces, and will have some cuts available fresh this week. Don’t forget about Fido, we have lots of feet available as treats for your furry little buddy.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: It seems as though everything in the greenhouse is starting to bloom at once. Here are a few highlights, but you will find more new things on the pages.

For shade or part shade: hostas, Siberian bugloss, Coral bells, some of the ferns, foam flower and its cousin foamy bells. These will all combine well with some of our many colors of Azaleas, which are still blooming well.

For sun or part sun: Columbine, Geraniums, Lambs ear, Penstemon, Pincushion Flower, white Salvia,Yarrow, and

All the phloxes are now in bloom, and all three are natives in this area. Do you know the differences? Creeping phlox (Phlox subulata) is often used in rock gardens and edgings in full or part sun. It’s a low plant to 6 inches that fills in empty spaces nicely. Phlox divaricata and P. stolonifera are both woodland plants which prefer partial shade. They are both quite a bit taller than P. subulata, around a foot tall in bloom.

The first of the “Garden in a Vase” carnations are here! These first bouquets will be mixed red and pink, but otherwise similar to the photo.

And the “Fresh cut” Herbs are beginning! This week we have available Lemon Balm and Chocolate Mint, with more to follow next week.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm): This week we have a fresh batch of Ginger Fig Shrub Concentrate, many fruit and nut options for Overnight Oats, and we still have some miners lettuce and forage greens available, as well as a few heads of red and green lettuce.

Our Ginger Fig Shrub Concentrate can be mixed with water for a delicious and refreshing drink or poured over your choice of salad greens. The figs and ginger root have nutritional value, as does the Apple Cider Vinegar and Tennessee Honey we mix it with.

Our ‘Dry Overnight Oats’ give you almost a week’s worth (6 servings) of breakfast that requires little in the way of preparation. Choose fruit options, seed/nut alternatives, and enjoy! Add Keifer, Yogurt, Milk, Herbal Honey, Pure Water or Shrubs.

Thanks to the cold, we have a bit more Miners Lettuce and Forage Greens. Both are super nutritious and great additions to or replacements for your everyday salad. We also have some Limited Edition Red and Green Lettuce. We started them early, and they have taken advantage of the covering and rain and are ready for eating.

Flying S Farms: Pac Choy, Salad Onions, Green Garlic and Spring Radishes. New Wild Blackberry JELLY!
