New Grower! Opening Bell: Shiitakes, Sweet Potatoes, Squash!

Good afternoon!
We are pleased to announce a new Grower for CLG. On Saturday, I inspected Healthy Flavors Arkansas, a large, new growing operation in south Conway. Shane Lindsay has been working hard to install season-extending high tunnels where he currently has several hundred tomato plants. While we are now at the end of a growing season, Shane is planning on producing lots of spring vegetables for us, all certified naturally grown. He also has some brassicas which should produce before winter. His list for next year includes green onions, tomatoes, peppers, kale, carrots, and more. He has the energy and know how to make it happen. We hope to have Shane at the market this Friday so you can meet him and ask any questions about his operation. He may also bring some kale and tomatoes so come early for the best selection.

This time of year there aren’t many blooming flowers in the garden for our pollinators. Luckily, Goldenrod is just now starting to bloom. Goldenrod is a perennial that has bright gold plumes of flowers. Consider adding this perennial somewhere in your garden for late season nectar for pollinators.

We’ve been having a lot of excellent items on the extra table lately. Earlier shoppers get the best selection. We are normally ready for customers to start arriving around 3 PM if you happen to be out and in the area. Just text me to see if we’re ready.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. Four instance, type in the word “sale”and see what pops up. We have over 425 items available now!

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)
