Closing The Shops At Morgan Lane

As of Friday, December 23rd, 2011, I have closed Morgan Lane Enterprises, (The Shops At Morgan Lane, The Greenhouse At Morgan Lane, & Antiques At Morgan Lane) due to a family member’s extended illness and rehabilitation period.
We are suspending shop hours at The Shops, including the Antiques and the Organic Greenhouse for awhile, but will definitely open up by appointment. You may Call or Text: 423 284 0899.

I will still blog about various items and ideas – perhaps I’ll have more time to write. Thank you to all our customers and suppliers and friends. Please keep following the blogs. I promise I’ll find more things to chat about.
Happy New Year to all.
Georgia (& John) Denman and Family

2011 Heirloom Vegetable Plants


Caitrin sent me a picture today from the greenhouse. The first of the tomato seeds have sprouted, and are sending tiny seedlings up from the trays.

She is busily planting mostly the Heirloom varieties of Tomato and Pepper plants at the moment.

Some of our most requested varieties are back this year.  Also, new varieties have made the list for this year.  We haven’t changed the website yet, but I’ve been working on the Lists of Plants.

If you just can’t wait to know what we are growing this year, come visit. Or, send me an email…and I’ll let you know some of the plans.  Keep watch here for more news about the plants that we’ll have available, and other organic gardening information. We do take requests and pre-orders. We only grow limited quantities of each variety.  So, if you have a special request get it to us early!   We’ll do our best to please.

Also, we’ll have some more recipes and herb use ideas on the website and here in my blog.

We also carry the complete line of Jim Long Herb books, with most always available. Jim has interesting historical herb books also.  Come see them in the Shop.  They are reasonably priced and are great to refer to over and over.  If you decide to order from their website, just tell them that Georgia at Morgan Lane sent you.

We have lots of reasonably priced items for Valentine’s Day, or just a special treat.

Also, I’ve been interviewed for a blog on how to incorporate old-time ideas in to modern living, especially the organic growing and the heirloom plant varieties.

Anne will probably be writing several different blogs from her visit to our farm.  Please check out her very interesting down-home blog.                        

I am available for lectures on Herbs, Organic Growing, Antiques, or a variety of other topics.

We are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00am to 4:00pm.  Come spend a few minutes or a few hours. We are glad to see you, and there is always something new in the Shop, the fields, or the greenhouse.

New article: Herbs to enhance cooking your fish


The Hunting and Fishing Expo in Etowah, TN was great this past weekend. We handed out alot of flyers about all the exciting things happening on the farm, displayed some hunting and fishing antiques, our great line of Pacifica candles, soaps and body butters, and displayed some of the many culinary herbs and organically raised vegetables plants that we have for sale at the farm.

To go along with the Expo, I wrote an article about Herbs to use to enhance cooking with fish. Noel has it up on the website. So, please go take a look. Any questions, feel free to ask via email or comments on the blog…or better yet, come by and visit!

If you have a way that you use herbs to cook your fish, please share it with us.

Georgia’s Herb Lecture at Crabtree Farm
April 27, 2010, 10:11 pm
Filed under: Herb Lecture(s), In the Greenhouse

Herb Lecture:
I spoke about growing, using, and preserving the harvest of culinary herbs at Crabtree Farms Spring Plant Sale. We had a very interested audience. They asked a lot of questions about the plants that were on Crabtree Farms Plant sale list, as well as other plants, and their gardens.
John and I enjoyed meeting people at the Farm and in the audience. We always enjoy our visits at Crabtree Farms, and learn interesting tidbits ourselves.
For those of you interested in joining a CSA, there is information on their website,, about joining. We don’t have a CSA here on our farm. But we will do an Herb of the Month program or gift certificate. Ask us about our Mother’s Day specials.  We also have fruit bushes, vegetable plants and perennials.
This weekend, some of us are going to be in Etowah at the Hunting and Fishing Expo, Saturday and Sunday, May 1 and 2, and we will also be here on our Farm, continuing with our plants for sale at the Greenhouse, antiques, etc in the shop, and also the foal watch.
More about that event in a moment.
