The Wednesday Market:  Did You Forget to Order? If So, There's Still Time!


Dear Friends,

Did you forget to place an order? Did you lose track of the day, since Monday fell on a holiday? Don’t fret – there is still time to order, but not for long. We will leave the system live until 2 p.m. today. We just don’t want you to miss the opportunity to order all the products you typically purchase. But after 2 p.m., that’s it. You’ll have to wait until the next ordering cycle begins on Saturday evening.

Here is the link:

Thanks,

New Field Farm's Online Market:  Leeks, Kennebecs, a little lettuce and mix


Greetings,

Happy September and best wishes to returning students and teachers. Being married to a now-retired teacher I know first hand of at least one job that’s harder than farming.

Warm, humid weather continues and we’re back to irrigating. The last rain we had was 12 days ago. August is said to have been one of the hottest on record.

We’ve added leeks, as well as Kennebec potatoes, which many of you are familiar with from past years.

The greenhouse peppers are taking a break, but still setting fruit so we’ll see if more ripen red or orange.

We have a few more plantings of lettuce and continue to sow salad mix. Two sowings of mix went in the hoophouse, following the cucumbers that grew there, to avoid what had been so much torrential rain and they look well. We keep trying!

We’re picking from the third planting of field-grown cukes. So far so good. It’s rare to get any after mid-September and sometimes not even that long, so we shall see.

Next week may be the first ginger harvest. It’s been growing since late March, first very slowly in the house and then very slowly in the hoophouse, but hopefully there will be something to show for all that time.

Lastly, I know the broccoli you got last week didn’t look like the usual rounded heads. This was a result of the heat. We lost most of the first planting to the weather. If you had a problem with the quality other than appearance let me know and I can credit your account.

Thank you for your orders.

Manchester Locally Grown:  Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm



Manchester Locally Grown market





Our pickup location is across the street from the Manchester City Schools administration building, which is located at

216 East Fort Street, Manchester, TN

If you don’t see a map, click on the address link.




Good morning!




This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online by 10 pm this evening.

Remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Also please go to our Facebook page & like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word. Surveys indicate that word of mouth is the most effective form of advertisement. Please help us advertise our fantastic growing market!

See you on Thursday!


Blessings,
Michael & Linda
