CLG: Very Sad News
It is with a very heavy heart that I have to let you know that our beloved friend, Steve Lunk, passed away on Tuesday October 4th, from cancer complications.
For those of you who knew him, you will understand how devastating a loss this is for our community. No amount of words can express how much he enriched our lives and how deeply he will be missed.
If you didn’t have the privilege of knowing him, Steve was CLG’s heart and soul. Every Friday for over eight years, without fail, he would be at the market, greeting us with a big smile and a genuine desire to get to know us.
Steve built our community up to what it is today, he was always ready to lend a hand, and went out of his way to make people feel special and cared for.
Steve asked not to have a service. He just asked for us to remember him. There will be a gathering in celebration of his life, details forthcoming.
If you wish to send anything to his wife Carissa, and his kids, Adam and Amanda, you may bring it to the market on Friday and I will get it to them.
Please keep Steve’s family in your thoughts, but most of all, go out there, be kind to every single person you meet, be thrifty, and enjoy every minute of life—that’s what Steve taught us to do.

Middle Tennessee Locally Grown: News From Dogwood Valley Greenhouse
Ordering will be open till Tuesday evening at 10 pm. Please share this newsletter with a friend and invite them to place an order!
From Linda at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:
I like to sell perennials in bloom in spring and summer for instant color in your garden, but fall really is the very best time to plant container-grown perennials, shrubs, or trees. Their root systems suffer very little transplant shock, compared to field-grown plant materials. Planting in September or October allows their root system to keep growing all winter in our climate. Maintenance, especially watering, is much easier, with cooler temperatures in fall, and they will have better drought resistance next spring and summer. For this reason, I have made some of my more popular perennials available now, even though they aren’t in bloom in this season. These include the astilbes, dwarf crested iris, woodland phloxes, candytuft, dwarf coreopsis, and shasta daisy this week, with a few more to come. My late season bloomers will bring fall color to your garden, including the fall reblooming azaleas, beautiful tall gauras, very unusual toadlily, and taller sedum. I have a huge selection of ferns and hostas ready to plant now in your shade garden, and you can get your whole herb garden planted this fall from my collection. Order soon, as some of these plants are in short supply at this time of year. I have a few nice young hanging baskets which will do a good job of replacing your tired old spring baskets to brighten the house this winter. Lastly, my beautiful Christmas decorations will soon be available for pre-order, including a new smaller size of natural decorated wreath. October orders will be the first ones filled in early December.
Merriwether Bakes, Arrows and Shoots, and Triple T Cattle Farms are all on vacation this week, planning to return next week.
