Beautiful fall lately, but it’s about to get weird around here. Heading back up into the mid 80’s for a bit, before finally falling down into a likely killing frost next Wednesday. So, I guess you should grab your swim suits and head to the pool or the mucky Georgia pond you like to swim in with the snakes. Or gators. Depending on how south you are. Mandy grew up with the occasional gator in her swimming pool down in Richmond hill. Marsh girl. Maybe just run through the sprinklers or cut off your sleeves. Then grab a jacket.
Anyways, the store is open, but we are closing up Thursday and Friday at 4:00 now since deer season has started and the neighbors begin hunting around 4:30 right next to the farm store. There will be the very last stems of dahlias in there this weekend, so swing by to get a last gasp of their beauty.
Our friends down at Comer Coffee are doing dinners and cocktails Thurs-Sunday this week, so you know where we’ll be most evenings.
Flower shipments will begin again next week with some limited offerings of our first heirloom mums of the season, so head to this link now if you want first crack at the limited supply.
As of right now, we just went live with pre-orders for our Gratitude Bouquets for Native American Heritage Day and Thanksgiving Day in November. They were a huge hit last year and despite having record numbers, they sold out awhile in advance and we had our biggest shipping day in our farm’s history, so secure yours now to make sure you don’t miss out. You can pre-order yours here!
Right about now, we are wrapping up our week and getting together with the crew to carve pumpkins and shoot bb guns at rascally beer cans for a little end of week excitement. It’s always good for a laugh and we’ve got a major Halloween fan and enthusiast of all things scary in Kali this year, so we’re excited to see what she carves up.
For any local-ish farmers interested in learning about our infrastructure set up and preferences, we’re hosting a UGA Extension tour for farmers interested in infrastructure this Sunday. There’s 10 spots left and the deadline to sign up is noon tomorrow (Saturday). If you’d like to join, email Laura Caitlen Ney at email@example.com before then and she’ll get you sorted.
Have a great weekend!
