Superior Seasons:  Mama, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys

Happy Mother’s Day!!!!!

Ordering Reminders! We are still offering HOME DELIVERY to Individual customers on Wednesdays! CLICK HERE, until Monday at 4:30 pm for Wednesday options. Deliveries occur normally between 12 and 2pm, but let us know if that doesn’t work for you and we’ll try to accommodate.

In the Garden
It will happen. There will be a nice weekend day that you will just want to get into the garden and work and plant and enjoy. It will happen. Yesterday was not it. Today – probably not. But maybe this week. Don’t worry, it’s not too late. We can’t even plant too many things yet in this here part of the world due to risks of frost right up until June. Get your pea, carrot, lettuce seed ready. Grab some broccoli, cabbage, onion transplants and stick all that in the ground first chance you get. It will be great. BTW, did you know most market gardeners plant onions from transplants NOT from sets? It’s cheaper and works just as well. Happy Mother’s Day everyone.

Good Growing

Some updates if you pick-up from Tarpon Springs. The reasoning behind the delivery charge is the 90% of the order’s goes to the grower we need a very low delivery charge to cover costs. It’s not been economic to not charge and has been a loss for the co-op. We want to provide a reasonable service of bringing in our orders to Tarpon Springs If the time is not convenient please contact us as our members cooperate sometimes picking up each others orders:

Citrus County Locally Grown:  We are Expanding

As the headline of this weeks blog states we are expanding. A new pickup point is established. also a great article on vegetable and meats.

Amy and Jay Levinson of 3 Rock Farm,have been growers with CCLG for a while now, they are hosting the new pickup point at their farm in East Dunnellon. Their farm is located in the Highlands just off Hwy. 200 in Marion county. Access to their farm is over made up roads so no risk of getting stuck. This gives a really convenient pick up point serving the Hwy.200 corridor. Thank you Amy and Jay.

So now please share this good news with your family, friends, co-workers and encourage them to actively participate in your On-Line Farmers Market.

This week our team came across this article from Dr. Mercola, which gives clear guidance on foods to avoid due to chemical “additions”.
