Comments Off on Remember those wilted winter squash from yesterday? Same squash, this morning. Those big umbrella leaves wilting is a survival mechanism to make it through the heat. It reduces plant water loss as the drooping leaves expose less surface area to the sun. God’s designs are amazing!.
Comments Off on First winter squash bloom! Love watching the bees work these big blooms. Good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, we’ll have acorn, butternut, delicata, gold nugget, candy roaster, sunshine, black forest and angel hair spaghetti squash. Phew! Looking forward to all those fall farmers markets!
Comments Off on OH NO! Tomorrow is the LAST day for Poplar Head Farmers Market in downtown Dothan this year! “But.. But… But… I’m hooked on the Sassy Apricot Jam! And I NEED my Rosemary Salt! And fresh real produce! What will I do?” Funny you should ask. 🙂 Check out www.marketatdothan.com. It’s an online farmers market right here in the Wiregrass. It runs all year round, and all the vendors use natural growing methods with no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. Fresh produce, jams, pasture raised chickens and eggs, beef, lamb, tasty treats and other fun stuff. Order on the weekend, then your order is delivered to Dothan, Daleville/Ft Rucker and Enterprise the following Friday. Great quality food, and it helps support your local farm families.
