Two Join in our Co-op Nest
The weather this week is causing smiles all over! People are less grumpy and so are the plants. The tomatoes have new flowers, the eggplant is all but dancing in the field and even the wildflowers have started to bud!
I wish I could say the same for some of my landscape plants in our yard. The heat was too much for them. Now I have some spots that need filling and it is still summer, so I want something pretty, but I also want things that will make it through fall and maybe even add winter interest. I have heard a lot of folks say the same thing. In order to solve this dilemma, our co-op partners at Riverdale nursery are sending us a shipment. They are a wholesale company, so you can’t order direct from them, but since they are a co-op partner you can get your late summer/fall shrubs, herbs, perennials and some annuals right here at Green Door Gourmet. Come Check out the selection and great pricing too! You can have a second chance at a lovely yard after all! Also, they are sending fig and blueberry bushes in case you are ready to try your edible landscape thumb!
Can I just say we have the best customers! I am so appreciative of everyone who is making their way to the shed each Saturday. It really has a feeling of community, and although we are still learning and growing we hope we are keeping you happy! One of the most fun things for me is introducing new things to our clients. This week we are going to do this by giving you a bonus in the box…treats from Shelton Farms. Shelton Farm is a diverse farm in New Market TN, and Danny Shelton has been growing berries and veggies, as well as milling corn and wheat for over 15years. You will get one of Danny’s 3 lb bags of milled items as a bonus this week! If you haven’t tried his stuff yet, you will love it. The grits are stone ground, thick yellow corn, almost like polenta, his corn meal makes some killer cornbread ( yes, we have recipes for you) and the wheat flour makes rolls that melt in your mouth! I can’t wait for you to try these! AND he is sending some frozen black raspberries for purchase… mix those with some peaches for a cobbler extraordinaire!
Green Door Gourmet urges you to enjoy the bounty of summer while you can. Soon it will be the end of cucs and squash, melons and beans. We are starting to see the first butternut squash flush color and certain early tomato varieties are no more.
This week in the box: cucs, cocktail and slicer tomatoes, squash, potatoes, okra, field corn, peppers, eggplant and more! Click here to order your box!
See you Saturday
