News from The Manager: Can you believe it, it is our’ Twelfth’ week offering Curb side delivery! Some have asked it we will be continuing this service, we will eventually get back “On The Porch” anticipating July 1st BUT will continue to offer Curb Side for those that request it and Delivery Service will remain available.

I believe Summer has actually arrived, several summer vegetables are beginning to arrive on the market, I’m excited to get the grill out and grill up some zucchini, onions, and yellow squash and figure out if I want Pork, Chicken or Beef with it! Of course all from our Growers!

News from Our Growers:

Mama D’s Bakery: We have added our Soft Pretzels they are a family favorite that we all enjoy with a movie night and a little mustard. We hope y’all enjoy them as much as we do.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm): We have Speckled Pea and Sunflower Microgreens, Revitalizing Bath Salt, Black Hawaiian Salt, and delicious and nutritious Shrubs.

Want to make sure your salad has some texture and taste? Add some microgreens. Delicious sunflower and speckled pea micros will add nutrition to your smoothie, complement or replace your fresh lettuce salad, or garnish a vegetable or meat dish of your choice.

When your day definitely could go better, add a bit of our Revitalizing Bath Salt to your hot water bath and let the day’s troubles evaporate. Our delicious Black Hawaiian Salt adds a delicious, light smokiness to any food, and is also good for you (in moderation).

Try a gut-healthy Ginger-Fig or Wolfberry Mint shrub/tonic for great taste combined with nutritious ingredients. Use them also for a salad dressing.

Quarter Springs Farm: we have updated our selection of reusable cloth napkins available through the Stone’s River market. Our new summer styles are just what your kitchen table needs to be stylish, eco-conscious, and economical. Show your style while you save the trees.

Oakview Farm: We have two different varieties of Zucchini this week, yes..they both taste different from each other.

RnR Farm: Full lineup of lettuce available: green and red leaf, butterhead, romaine, and lettuce blend.

New this week are two types of zucchini: traditional green zucchini and an Italian heirloom called Costata Romanesca.

We also have a limited supply of rainbow Swiss Chard, so get it while you can!

News from Our Growers:

RnR Farms: we are cranking out the lettuce even as the weather turns warm. We have a huge selection of all types of lettuces: green and red leaf, romaine, butterhead, and even some kale. And we are in the middle of salad week on our Facebook page https://facebook.com/rnrfarmstn where we are sharing tips and recipes for all things lettuce!

Here is one of our delicious recipe…Southwest Chicken Salad

1 bag RnR Farms Red Leaf
1-2 grilled chicken breast
1/2 can of corn (drained)
1/2 can of Black beans (drained)
1 cup of grape tomatoes (halved)
1 Cucumber (peeled and sliced)
3 oz. Shredded cheese
Avocado and tortilla strips, optional

Directions:
Assemble salad and use a 1:1 ratio of ranch and your favorite barbecue sauce. Enjoy!

Note: I like to quickly marinate chicken breasts before I grill them. Marinate for 15-30 minutes with 1/4 cup olive oil, a heavy splash of apple cider vinegar, and salt and pepper to your liking.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3Farm): We have early Romaine lettuce, chicory, and microgreens, as well as our delicious nutrient-dense Farmed and Foraged Greens. We also have herbal honey, gourmet mustard, and herbal teas for what ails you!

Green romaine and curly lettuce is coming in strong, as is our chicory! We have chicory leaf, which has a unique, bitter taste that adds a special “kick” to salads, sandwiches, and many other meals. Our bodies need bitter for digestion and other functions, so why not try some that is nutritious?

Add nutrition, texture, and taste to your salad or sandwich with Mustard, Kale, and Turnip Microgreens. There’s just the right amount of bite to get your taste buds’ attention! Microgreens have much higher nutrient levels than the full grown veggies, and work well adding to smoothies, salads, or baked dishes.

You will love our Farmed and Foraged greens. This blend is a great tame & wild hybrid salad complement or substitute, it’s awesome on sandwiches, and it is quite delicious topping a burger or other sandwich. If you tried forage greens you will appreciate the tasty, nutrient dense, blend that will either replace or complement your salad.

Nom Noms Dog Treats: Want to share with you the new additions to our menu. We have new treats size and a new treat flavor.

Now offering the Bite Size mini treat for those small doggies and training treats for pups.

The new flavor is Peanut Butter Banana. We have always made this treat however it is now made with flour instead of oats.

Short Mountain Cultures: Some of our Short Mountain Cultures favorites are back in stock this week! Our kimchi is made with locally grown napa cabbage, purple daikon radishes, green onions, ginger and our chili garlic sauce. ABC tempeh has also returned! Organic adzuki beans, black beans, chickpeas and millet make this delicious soy-free, protein rich tempeh! Our cold and bubbly water kefir and kombucha are also particularly refreshing as the weather heats up! Available by the bottle or half gallon jug (by the way, we take this back to reuse)!

Wedge Oak Farm: New this week: Peach and Fig Fried Pie Filling and Jam….This pie filling and jam is packed with fresh peaches! It also has dried figs that have been soaked in brandy (don’t worry, the brandy cooks off during the long cook time).

Flying S Farms: Red Stem Kale, Swiss Chard, Large head Cabbage, Hakurei Turnips, Salad and Candy Onions, Sour Dough Breads and Friendships Breads

Look forward seeing you “At the Curb" of Quinn’s Mercantile Wednesday June 10th from 5:00 – 6:30pm, please contact me if you are unable to make delivery or are running late, please phone, email or text me so we can make arrangements to get your order to you.

We also (finally) have a new batch of our Scarborough Fair Mustard. The herbs include parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme, and they give just about any sandwich, salad, or meat/vegetable dish a touch of heat backed by a delicious whole mouth wow.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: We have restocked several varieties of tomato plants, just a few of each. When these are gone, I doubt if I will be able to restock. Most of the herbs are large enough to join your garden, and there will be a couple more added in the near future. If you need a particular herb, let me know and I’ll try to find it.

The astilbes are beginning to bloom in shade and part shade; the daylilies and Shasta daisies in sun and part sun. The ferns are finally getting large enough to be added to your garden, and I’ve included several varieties on the market. They, along with the foam flower and hostas, will really brighten your shady areas. The green sedum is now flowering, and its cheerful yellow star-shaped flowers will enhance the more sunny areas of a garden.

I have just one more Lettuce Bowl, and won’t be making any more this spring. This beautiful and tasty “living salad” can be yours if you act quickly!

Please note that I will be updating my quantities available of perennials and herb plants on Monday morning. If you’re looking for something in particular, please check back then.

Flying S Farms: Unfortunate news about our popular 7-Grain Sour Dough Bread, we unable to obtain the 7 grain berries from Montana Wheat Co. they are no longer making the grain mix! I will continue to look for another supplier.

Yes, I will keep trying to get our Jams and Jellies back on the market when we have 36 hours in a day haha!
Hang in there with me, they will be back I promise.

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone that fills this amazing position and those special memories of those that have passed on.

News from Our Growers:

Oakview Farm and Wedge Oak Farm are back this week after updating and restocking their inventory.

Mo’s Scrubs by Toya: we have restocked our super popular anti bacterial hand gel, named ‘TOUCH IT’, to the market. This hand gel is made with 91% alcohol and an essential oil blend that helps fight germs.

Quarter Spring Farm: Did you forget to get mom a gift? No worries. Quarter Spring Farm can help you out with one of our amazing goat milk soaps. And don’t forget a treat for mom’s dog. Raw chicken feet make a great snack for Fido, too.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm)We have fresh greens, gourmet mustard, and two flavors of hummus.

We have a few heads of delicious red lettuce! Our mustard greens are pushing through the spring weather craziness if you’d like a little bite in your greens. Our miner’s lettuce will be used in limited supply in our forage greens, which can not only be eaten as lettuce but can also be cooked like spinach.

We have more of our best/selling Apicius Mustard. It’s an ancient Roman hummus recipe with pine nuts and almonds. We also have some more of our Hot Thyme Red Wine Mustard.

Try our new toasted pine nut hummus or roasted red pepper hummus. They are delicious on breads, crackers, salads, or even soups (hummus is a great meat/protein alternative).

We also have herbal honey, tonics/shrubs, herbal teas, and traditional teas to brighten your day!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: we have tomato and pepper plants to replace the ones you lost this past weekend in the unexpected freeze. Since I don’t have a huge stock, if I run out or don’t have the variety you want, please message me your additional requests, and I will try to fill them. But please plan not to plant till the end of May. The weather has been unpredictable this year, with a long, cool spring (my daffodils lasted 2 weeks longer than usual!) which has kept the soil unusually cool. Tomatoes and peppers like nice warm feet for best growth, and will not really do much till mid-June anyway.

I also have a good variety of herb plants available, but with the same comments as above. I don’t have many of any one, but will be glad to try to restock what you’re looking for. Just drop me a note. I’m unlikely to have many more Fresh cut herbs for a while.

I also have some new perennials coming into bloom, notably the very early daylilies for sun and the astilbes for the shade garden. Surely you can find a spot for a couple of these beauties!

Flying S Farms: Produce this week..Kohlrabi, Red Russian Kale, Small Head Cabbage, Swiss Chard, Radishes, Salad Onions, Green Garlic and Pac Choi.

Look forward seeing you “At the Curb" of Quinn’s Mercantile Wednesday May 13th from 5:00 – 6:30pm, please contact me if you are unable to make delivery or are running late, please phone, email or text me so we can make arrangements to get your order to you.

Both are a nutrient-dense (filling) lettuce or spinach alternative/supplement, so they can be used for breakfast (smoothies/eggs), lunch (salads), and dinner (as a salad or side vegetable). We also have just a few bunches of mustard greens to add a kick to anything you eat (fresh or cooked). Our lettuce is in time-out while it grows, with more coming along fast.

We (finally) have a fresh new batch of our best/selling Apicius Mustard. It’s an ancient Roman recipe with pine nuts and almonds. You needn’t speak Latin to love it, but if you do feel free to share!

And speaking of pine nuts, try our new (and delicious) toasted pine nut hummus. It’s best on anything you can imagine, like breads, crackers, salads, or even soups (it’s made with garbanzo beans so it is a great meat/protein alternative).

We also have herbal teas, traditional teas, and a few herbal honeys to brighten your day!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: Strawberry hanging baskets are ready! They are a lot fuller than the early photo indicates, and they each have several early berries now ripe, for an immediate taste treat.

And a few of the larger tomato and pepper plants are ready! I will have more varieties of tomatoes in a couple weeks, as they were started pretty late and need a little more time to grow. But those who know me, know that I say wait till May 15 to plant vegetable plants, anyway, as the soil will be warmer and will hasten growth after planting.

Lettuce Bowls are back! Loaded with a variety of direct-seeded plants, they will make great-tasting cut-and-come-again salads for some time.

I still have a good selection of azalea bushes. Although they are no longer blooming, they will make a good green addition to your landscape, as you wait for next spring’s blooms.

The herbs are growing well, and from week to week I will have different Fresh Cuts and some live plants to sell. I listed a couple, but some are already sold out. I still have lots of Elderberry bushes, but when they are gone, they are gone for this year. Since it would be better for them to be transplanted before the summer heat arrives, you should plan to get yours soon.

Flying S Farms: Swiss Card, Pac Choy, Radishes, Green Garlic and Salad onions. Added Super Mini (6) and Mini (3) Artisan Boule think of them like small biscuits or rolls.

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. (Appreciate returned Jars)

Oakview Farm: has fresh kale, mustard, arugula and a salad greens mix on sale this week. We also have a variety of fresh cut herbs: parsley, thyme, garlic chives and lemon balm. Our napa cabbage, which doesn’t like this warmer weather, is starting to head so we are selling the crunchy green leaves for your lettuce wraps, salads and stir fries.

Carole Herbs (CS3 Farm): We have chives, greens,and hummus, and a question.

Check out our chives for a nutritious and delicious onion flavor for omelettes, salads, or dinner meals. Chives contain a lot of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

We have more forest greens and miners lettuce, as well as a few more heads of fresh-picked red and green lettuce available. Our miner’s lettuce is good as a lettuce or spinach supplement or alternative, so it can be added to salad or can be used cooked or sautéed with your choice of eggs, vegetables, or meat.

We also have a fresh new batch of red pepper hummus available, and if you haven’t had it, you haven’t lived. Well, at least not to the fullest!

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
Tradescantia.

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.

Flying S Farms: Pac Choy, Radishes, Green Garlic and Salad onions. Added Super Mini (6) and Mini (3) Artisan Boule think of them like small biscuits or rolls.

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 have replenished our supply of chicken cuts and pieces, and will have some cuts available fresh this 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.
