Greener Acres Farm:  This Week in the Online Market


Microgreens are Back

Dan with GreenSpace Microgreens is back this week with Black Oil Sunflower Shoots. He states they will have other items available in the following weeks. Microgreens are a nutrient rich item that sells out fast. If you have been waiting for their return… Grab them quickly!

Updates from Green"er" Acres Farm

Green"er" Acres had some successful experiments in the high tunnel over the winter. Peas/Snow peas and lettuce that was seeded in October 2017 did amazingly well once the warmer weather began in February and March. By doing this, we were able to provide fresh salad greens and fresh peas the last few weeks. The heat of the last few weeks have unfortunately taken its toll on those crops and they have now been pulled due to bolting of the greens and the pea plants running out of energy. But don’t be down-hearted. We are currently cutting salad greens from an early spring planting, and we just seeded a new crop this week. We also have new pea and snow pea plants seeded and should be able to begin harvesting in a few weeks.

We will probably not have strawberries available from our own farm this year, as the excessive rains are creating problems with mold and rotting, not to mention the ones that have matured are being enjoyed by our resident chipmunk.

This week’s offerings from Green"er" Acres include LOTS of fresh herbs, salad greens, garlic scapes, celery, rhubarb, kale and a small amount of swiss chard (in yellow only).

Our early plantings of summer produce in the high tunnel are doing amazing and we have a few small green tomatoes on already (a little bigger than a golf ball) as well as a few cucumbers and mini-bell peppers.

From Rispoli’s Produce

Farm fresh brown eggs, salad greens, kale and their own honey.

From Clover Creek Cheese Cellar

Grass-fed ground beef in 1 pound packages, patties, and their popular 10 pound packages; raw milk, and awesome artisan cheeses.

From Vale Wood Farms

A full line of dairy products to include butter, yogurt, cottage cheese, French onion dip and more.

From Linda at *Dogwood Valley Greenhouse *still has a good supply of tomato plants in two sizes Please place your order soon so you don’t miss out. Please note that prices remain greatly reduced on the 4" square pots. Varieties included are: Better Boy, Early Girl (just a few), Abe Lincoln, Big Red Cherry, and Brandywine. The gallon pots are really beautiful plants, beginning to bloom. And it’s not too late to plant them; simply plant them deep and water well and consistently.

I have restocked several herbs, including some Thymes and Greek Oregano. I also have both green and purple basil, and chamomile, in 4" square pots. And the lemongrass is magnificent! If you’re looking for a specific herb, please ask! I may well have it, as I’ve made a big effort to collect all the herbs available anywhere locally.

Perennials in bloom this week include: astilbe in several colors, balloon flower (both blue and white), a few early coneflowers, coral bells (better known for their beautiful foliage in several colors), dwarf coreopsis (ending bloom cycle), a few early daylilies (mostly pink right now), foamy bells, very early gauras, yellow creeping sedum, Shasta daisies, Stokesia (Stokes aster) in both blue & white, and yarrow in both pink & white.

The ferns are all magnificent, especially Japanese Painted, Northern Lady, Ostrich, Painted, Christmas and Dixie Wood ferns.

We have some new hanging baskets – coleus for shade and petunias for sun, and one large fuchsia basket I think you will love.

Coming soon: fresh cut herbs. Right now my shingles won’t allow me to do the intense bending required to harvest them.

And a little teaser: I potted out about two dozen baby African violets this morning. I’m thinking they will be in bloom around Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Farm News of the Week








News from Sow’s Ear Piggery:
This week, we are replenishing our pork products, re-stocking some common items and adding some new ones. Our 744-pounder gave us lots of great pork! Beautiful belly/sides for bacon, huge rib racks, a great big loin, and 1-inch chops. We used a new butcher, Edgefield Prime in Pikeville, TN. Their pork sausage recipe is a well-balanced blend of seasonings and a good ratio of pork to fat, in a coarse-ground rustic-style sausage.
Stock up now for your Independence Day BBQ!

(Clockwise from upper left) Belly (AKA pork side), 1" Pork chops, roast steaks, Whole loin.




Flying S Farm has added “Red Ace” Beets, “Little Gem” Cabbage, Hardneck Garlic Scapes, Texas Sweet Onions, “Red Pontiac” Potatoes, Zucchini Squash “Dunja” and “Golden.”
