2011 Heirloom Vegetable Plants

Hello,

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.  www.LongCreekHerbs.com

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.                                

www.floursackmama.blogspot.com

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.



AUTUMN PLANT SALE CONTINUED – LAST WEEK

This is the Final Week of our Autumn Plant SALE:

Tuesday, September 28 until Saturday, October 2nd, 10am until 4pm.

Our Autumn Sale on plants continues this week. Please see our previous blogs for details regarding the SALE.  Included are: Houseplants, Hanging Baskets, Perennials, Culinary Herbs, Pepper plants, and MORE.

Two perennial plants that we have on sale are two varieties of Echinacea, paradoxa and tennesseensis; and Shasta Daisies.

Echinaceas:

E. paradoxa is an Ozark native. This lovely plant is very sturdy, and unique, featuring yellow flowers, with wide petals. 24 – 36” tall.

E. tennesseensis is a native Tennessee perennial. It is listed on the US Fish and Wildlife Services’ list of endangered plants. Please do not dig it up in the wild! Or pick the flowers in the wild! We have nicely grown, reasonably priced plants from commercial seed. All our plants are grown organically too! The purple petals on this plant are narrow and upturned. 12 to 24” tall.

Shasta Daisies are another of our featured plants currently ready for Autumn planting. We have had enormous clumps form in a couple years of this happy looking, drought tolerant perennial. Shasta Daisies are white petaled with yellow centers. They bloom in early through mid-summer and provide a great neutral background and filler plant for mixed perennial borders. They are also great on a bank or in a terraced plan. 24-36” tall and wide.

Almost all of our plants are currently On SALE.

All the Muscovey Ducklings have been SOLD.  Thank You. Watch for news of more hatchings.

This week is the U S Route 411 Yard Sale, and there are Fall Festivals this coming weekend in Benton and Etowah.
