We have some upcoming events…

Plan to join us Saturday April 1st from 10 am to 2 pm for a potluck lunch and a hands on raised bed workshop for all skill levels at the GNB conference center in the Gywnn shopping center. We’ll talk about planting dates, spacing, interplanting and succession plantings. Using information from the best national and local gardeners you’ll learn to apply these techniques to a single raised bed or a full sized market garden. Hope to see you then! We are able to offer the workshop free of charge thanks to our FMPP grant from the USDA. The class is limited to 50 people. Please email Michelle Pridgen at independencefarmersmarket@gmail.com to register.

Learn about becoming an IFM vendor,sign up for the season’ and enjoy a potluck lunch with your fellow vendors. 11 am to 2 pm at the GNB conference center in Gywnn shopping center between Food City and the high school.

The Cumming Harvest:  This Week at The Cumming Harvest


This Week

My Daily Bread is back to the market this week. Happy to have them!

Carrell Farms & Buffalo Gal will deliver again on April 8th. http://www.carrellfarms.com/

Indian Creek Angus will deliver on Saturday, April 1st. http://www.indiancreekangus.com/

Cultured Traditions is listed online and selling this week.

This weeks cold snap, last night, tonight and tomorrow will be in the low-to-mid 20s and could get down into the teens in outlying areas. It’s not unusual to get cold nights this time of year — our average last frost day isn’t until mid-April — but given how unseasonably warm it has been, this will hit us hard. Not only have the fruit trees bloomed, they’ve already begun setting fruit. Spring veggies, including leafy greens, like to grow slow with thick leaves in the cool air, and that thickness helps them survive cold nights. But in the heat, they grow fast and thin, and have much less natural defenses against freezing.

Our growers are scrambling, trying to protect what they’ve got growing. They’ve estimated what they’ll have for us on Saturday, but please be understanding if their estimates aren’t as accurate as usual. A few degrees one way or another can mean the difference between getting through ok and total losses.

Plants Heirloom Gardens, Leilani’s and North Forsyth High School FFA have all listed plants for sale this week to help those of you get ready for spring.
