We’ve had a very eventful fall so far. Last month we went to the annual Garden Writer’s Convention in Raleigh, NC. It was great to see so many familiar faces and make new friends! We also attended FarmAid in St. Louis where we met several interesting people in the local food movement.
The 2010 seed catalog is in the works. Seeds from our growers are arriving daily. It’s always an exciting, but extremely busy, time of year for us! We look forward to getting the new catalog into your hands in the near future!

It’s been a busy month around the company. We’ve been feverishly working to get all the last minute projects completed before our largest event of the season, The Spring Planting Festival (May 3,4). In between all the last minute ends to tie, we’re adding a new warehouse… and working on getting the restaurant in tip-top shape for the grand opening.
Jere and I just recently returned from a three week trip to California. We traveled from the Mexican border to San Fransico. It was a beautiful escape from the last few days of winter. We were able to visit several farmer’s markets which were always a highlight of the day.
If you’re not already planning to come to our May festival, we invite you to visit us at our farm Sunday and Monday, May 3 and 4. You will be entertained by top musicians, educated by terrific speakers, and tempted by 1000s of plants and handmade crafts. Swing by for some old fashion fun. We hope to see you soon!
