Champaign, OH:  October Road

Let the sun run down right behind the hill
I know how to stand there still
’Till the moon rise up behind the pine, oh Lord
October road…
(James Taylor)

Well, here we are, lovely market customers…we have started into this most colorful, golden tinged month of October.

October brings in a whole new, crisp feel to the air. A different way of eating, different activities, beautiful sunrises, lovely sunsets. And, as always, we are here with you, to welcome in this next change of season.

I just got back from vacation, last week, only to head straight into sheer panic with my daughter, son-in-law, their pup, and their soon to be babe, who is due in less than four weeks, fleeing Hurricane Ian. They are safe, they had family to escape to, inland, and are still not in their house because of no power in their area of Cape Coral. But, they are safe.

Thankfulness does not begin to describe my feeling for their safety, it is still with a heavy heartbreak over the devastation around them. This song, that I picked for today, gives a sense of hope, of peace, of rebuilding…all of what I wish for all who were devastated by the hurricane.

Shelter gives us strength, shelter gives us love, shelter gives us security. I hope that this market always serves as a shelter of goodness to you.

The turn of the autumn weather rebuilds in us, gives us a rebirth, and that is what I hope for all, every day…the goodness and the hope…

The market is open, and taking orders until 8am, tomorrow morning.

I am off the market, this week, getting ready for a big wedding, with loads of prep, that I’m catering with Hippie and the Farmer, Saturday.

I will be back, next week, with breads, and also soups!

October road…

Yellow Delicious:
Very sweet to the taste. It is a favorite for salads, apple sauce, and apple butter.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: I like to sell perennials in bloom in spring and summer for instant color in your garden, but fall really is the very best time to plant container-grown perennials, shrubs, or trees. Their root systems suffer very little transplant shock, compared to field-grown plant materials. Planting in September or October allows their root system to keep growing all winter in our climate. Maintenance, especially watering, is much easier, with cooler temperatures in fall, and better drought resistance next spring and summer. For this reason, I have made some of my more popular perennials available now, even though they aren’t in bloom in this season. These include the astilbes, dwarf crested iris, woodland phloxes, candytuft, dwarf coreopsis, and shasta daisy this week, with a few more to come. My late season bloomers will now bring color to your garden, including the fall reblooming azaleas, beautiful tall gauras, very unusual toadlily, and taller sedum. I have a huge selection of ferns and hostas ready to plant now in your shade garden, and you can get your whole herb garden planted this fall from my collection. Order soon, as some of these plants are in short supply at this time of year. I have a few nice young hanging baskets which will do a good job of replacing your tired old spring baskets to brighten the house this winter. Lastly, my beautiful Christmas decorations will soon be available for pre-order, including a new smaller size of natural decorated wreath. October orders will be the first ones filled in early December.

Linwood Lamb: This week we have a few delicious “NEW” items: Chorizo Lamb Brats, Fetta Cheese and Spinach Lamb Sliders and Lamb Kabobs! Enjoy our Spicy Italian Lamb Brats and Thick Cut Lamb Loin Chops and Thick Cut Lamb Rib Chops. We also have ‘Price Reduced’ Lamb Leg Steaks.

Pennie’s Delights: Last weeks pickup time was a delight to have Pennie and her husband setup with some of their products. If you have not had her Cinnamon Rolls you have missed out on a very delicious treat, soft and just the right amount of cinnamon and icing! The Peach Cobbler is a must for a after meal dessert or just a delicious treat. She also had several of her other items to purchase.

Pinky’s Micros:
We are offering difference sizes of our Microgreens and Sprouts! This week we have these delicious Microgreens and Sprouts available.
Basic Salad Mix, Broccoli, Pea shoots,
Radish microgreens, Sunflower micro greens.
