Surviving the Storms/Tornados

This is a quick post. More to follow.
As far as we know, all our friends and family have survived the storms/tornados. No one has power. All of our immediate family and critters are ok.
Most of our builldings had little damage. Some fencing was damaged, but the horses are all ok.
Friends in Bradley County lost all their farm buildings, but family and home are alright. Other friends had little damage.
Friends in McMinn County are flooded in; but they, home, and critters are all ok.
Britta is working in Arizona, and smoke is in the air from fires…but she is well.
We will update you with amusing stories, later…for instance Foxy and CL’s very heavy dog box stories…but for now…love and hugs to all our family and many friends…and prayers for all our friends, neighbors and customers…and the greater community of the world.
Hugs to all.
The Denman, McGee and Bayard Families



We’ve been planting and harvesting!

Hello,

Caitrin and Kathy have been busy planting. We have all sorts of vegetable plants in the ground. Don’t worry though. It is not to late to start a garden; or add some more to your garden.

We are also harvesting. The other night John and I ate our whole dinner from the farm. Egg salad with our eggs; and several different veggies.

We have a couple different kinds of lettuce; French Breakfast Radishes; tiny zucchini and yellow crookneck squash; sorrel; and more.

We do not always have alot of produce available. We mostly sell the plants. But what we do have available, we’ll sell. And we have lots of nice plants ready to go in a garden.  Some are popular varieties.  But most are unusual varieties.

Of course, we specialize in culinary herbs and unusual, heirloom, and ethnic varieties of vegetables. We have pepper plants from mild to HOT available; including ones that can be grown in container gardens or as specimens in pots.  And our tomato plants are still beautiful.  We stagger our plantings so that they do not get overgrown.

Some of us will be at the Liberty Classic Horse show competing and cheering on our friends.  Some of us will be at the Farm.  It is going to rain part of the weekend, but not all…and the temperatures will be pleasant.  Perfect planting weather.  Come visit.
