Athens Locally Grown has closed.
Availability for March 1
We have a week without fresh veggies this week, but there are still 101 items listed on the website, including several new items. The growers have been listing their own products on the new website, but I’ve been keeping an eye on what goes up (using the optional “What’s New” section).
New this week are bouquets of daffodils from McMullan Family Farm. He doesn’t have any greens, but he expects to the week after next (we’ll be taking next week off, as I’ll explain later). He also has more ground beef, pecans, and walnuts.
Double B Farms has listed several flavors of homemade lip balm (using wax from his own hives) in addition to the fresh and dried mushrooms, mushroom logs, soaps, honey and candles. If you’ve already ordered from Double B, you’ll have found some samples of the lip balm in your bags.
Split Creek returns with raw goat milk, award-winning cheeses, fudge, and soap. Diamond Hill is offering raw cow’s milk. Mills Farm has milled products and dried tomatoes. 1000 Faces has coffee with local connections roasted to order. Soangbird Designs has wonderful soaps and candles. And TaylOrganics has processed ciders, pickles, jellies, etc.
As I mentioned, we’ll be taking next week off due to the annual Georgia Organics conference, which begins Thursday morning way down in Douglas Georgia. Several of us growers are trekking down there, and some of you may be planning on it as well (it’s by no means just for growers, and the locally grown feast Friday night will be well worth the drive). It’s not too late to register yourself if you’re interested—you can find out more at www.georgiaorganics.org
We’ll see you this Thursday at Gosford Wine from 4:30 to 7pm, and then we’ll return the week after next. We expect to have the first of the spring veggies then. Thanks for all your support!
