Suwanee Whole Life Co-op: The Market will be CLOSED next weekend
My husband’s uncle is very ill and is not expected to make it. We’ve decided to just assume that we will be making a trip to Virginia late next week. In light of this, the market will closed next weekend (11/16-11/18).
I wanted to give you all the opportunity to plan ahead and order additional meats, milk, eggs, etc. this weekend for the following week. You may place an additional order and the system will automatically add up your entire order total. The market will close at 5pm on Sunday.
We will still have Nature’s Garden Delivery produce boxes delivered to my house on Tuesday, Nov. 20th. If you are planning to be out of town please remember to put your box on vacation hold or call NGD to let them know.
I will still have pick up this Tuesday (Nov 13th) so there are NO changes this week.
In addition, a few of you have asked me when to expect the Wilderness Family Natural order to be available for pick up. Due to the size of our WFN order I’m expecting it to be in for the 11/27 pickup. I’ll know more after I place our group order this Monday. This is a pre-order and payment is expected at pick up this Tuesday.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Columbina, the newest addition at Rancho Alegre Farm is thriving! Look for her when you come to the Farm! She is a “cutie” and has already had a misadventure! She managed to sneak out of the property and spent one night “on the lam”! But not to worry, she was found very early the next morning, a little weary, but none the worse for wear! She now sticks pretty close to Momma and the other Ladies!

A_GUSTAVORE WINNER THIS WEEK: RHONDA
For Halloween, Rhonda sent us a photo of herself cooking a “Frankensquash.” She writes: “Cross pollination in a friend’s garden resulted in squash plants that produce pale green fruit with a yellow squash shape and acorn squash ribs. The Frankensquash tastes like a zucchini, so I hope my garden produces more!” Rhonda will receive a limited edition A-GUSTAVORE tshirt for her winning photo.
THANK YOU LESLIE:
Thank you Leslie of Luna Bug Soups for giving me the gift of a stress-free, two-weeks-away-from-the-market. You are a gem.
