Our Grower’s News:

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: It’s Christmas time in Tennessee! Well, not really, but it is time to put in your order for decorations from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse. This year I will be selling at Wildwood Christmas Tree Farm in Woodbury, and I want to be sure to reserve enough decorations for all my local friends.

So here is how this will work: prepay the total cost now, and reserve a delivery date. Note: it will be easier for me to fill your order on a later date. I promise I will not run out of wreaths and kissing balls, but it’s hard to make as many as are wanted early in the season. They should last about a month if outside, and will be just as beautiful after Christmas as before. Delivery will begin the first Wednesday of December and continue till all orders are filled. Order and pay now, pick up and enjoy in December. Coming in a month or so: Christmas cacti and African violets, both with foil florist pot wrap.

Sing Bee Honey: Fall is in the air! It is time for fall festivals, warm sweaters, and backyard fires. But, are you ready for cold and flu season? Honey has been shown to lessen symptoms of sore throat and suppress cough. Several studies have shown the benefits of honey when used for respiratory symptoms. You can read more with a quick search of WebMD or Mayo Clinic online. Recommended methods of taking honey include eating a spoonful of honey and allowing it to trickle down your throat as you slowly swallow or adding honey to a warm cup of tea. As a reminder, honey is not recommended for infants under 1 year of age. While honey is not a cure for the cold or flu, it can sure help make the symptoms more bearable. Honey is available in a number of sizes in both jars and convenient squeeze bottles. Stock up so you are ready for the winter season!

It’s a perfect time of year for some soothing, hot tea!

Bean Man: Most requested Almond Flour, Cassava Flour, Brown Rice Flour and White Rice Flour is now available, the response has been awesome. Several folks who visited on Wednesday were made aware of the roll-out and we also reference recipes in the product descriptions on the our site as well as provide those recipes on the backs of the packages. Not to worry on the Almond Flour as an allergen, we have a separate facility where all processing, milling, testing a packaging is performed so those customers at risk are safe as that is a priority. All first time buyers will receive a copy of our recipe sheet in case they are looking for quality cooking ideas.

Quarter Spring Farm: we have a full selection of pasture raised chickens and chicken cuts.

We do our best to allow the rhythms of the earth and seasons to rule our practices throughout the year. We primarily grow and harvest live plants during the warm, growing seasons and as the cold season returns, we dry and process the herbs, using the dormant period to create our herbal products. Time of year may affect what is readily available, but we will keep our list updated.

Grown in our greenhouse on the east side of Murfreesboro, we have a variety of different herbs available in 4" liner pots. Our plants are grown from seed or cuttings in organic mix. We also offer some in dried form by the ounce as they come available.

East Fork Farm: Time to tuck your plants in for the winter chill. Order our organic worm castings for plants, trees, lawns and anything else you can grow. This product is non toxic, child and pet friendly and you don’t have to be concerned about using too much. The benefits of worm castings are: fighting fungal diseases and pests i.e., aphids, white flies, spider mites and other pests that feed of plants juices. The castings can be used to rehab all potting and ground soils for up to 1 year making it a great soil amendment addition to any plant lovers garden.

If you’re aware that your Market manager played hookey a couple of weeks ago, well yes, I played hookey. Glad to share the blessed occasion info if you wish, but for purposes here I want to dwell on one of our culinary discoveries.


I’m not talking about buttered biscuits, biscuits and gravy, or even sausage or chicken biscuits. I’m talking about gourmet skyscraper biscuits with the works that could keep you going several days!

The background is that Mr. Horton loves breakfast. And when in a new city prefers unique restaurants to established chains regardless of how good they are. Seriously. Panera in Chattanooga is no different than Panera in Dothan. We got to experience Maple Street Biscuit Company, Bantam and Biddy, and Milk & Honey. Each of these places offered their own unique versions of Chicken and Waffles, but it was the biscuits that really stood out, rather I should say, stood UP.


While I’ll be the first to tell you that a traditional biscuit is not the best bread you can nourish yourself with, I can tell you there’s a LOT of creativity that can go into one of these things. We saw menu items where they were topped with applesauce, pepper jelly, shiitake gravy, honey mustard and hot sauce. Besides standard breakfast fare (meat, eggs & cheese) things like seafood, goat cheese, every relish imaginable, and assorted veggies including slaw, collards and spinach thrown in.

Thankfully those of us who shy away from traditional breads do have options. A REALLY good biscuit, shown in the lower right, can be made with einkorn wheat. The recipe link below tells how and you can put anything you jolly well please in it.

Let us know if you take the plunge, with or without gluten, and if you do, share a photo on our Facebook Discussion Page. We’re all about supporting each other’s good eating habits and hey, if a healthy biscuit can make your life better we want to hear about it!


Disaster In The Parking Lot: Apologies for the delay sending this newsletter out. In normal conditions it’s easy enough to open Market and send out the newletter remotely from my cell phone. “Normal” is the key word and apparently our church parking lot where we held Trunk or Treat earlier, doesn’t quality as normal as it sits in a low spot. It was a struggle to connect to our website and get to the button that opens the Market. Ordering has been possible since 5 pm earlier today, but who knows if the newsletter gets lost in cyberspace?

Avalon Farms:

We’re all good here. : )  Been able to spend a little more time on the porch enjoying the beautiful cool days.

The persimmons are in and tasting great. They will be available starting today.

There will be a few radish bunches too.

All 3 types of turnips are taking there sweet time growing, but soon we’ll have purple top turnips, red and white salad turnips. 

The squash and cukes are not enjoying the shorter days. They are almost done, but I think I’ll get a few more.

What follows is a repeat from last week in case you missed it:


Our Thanksgiving week order cycle will run from Saturday Nov. 20 to Monday, Nov. 22. Pickup will be Wednesday, Nov 24, the day before Thanksgiving. This schedule was set so that those who have ordered fresh turkeys from Grows in Rows can pick them up, fresh and unfrozen, within 24 hours of butchering. You just can’t get fresher than that!

That being said, if you placed a deposit on one of Kathy’s turkeys, that’s the day to claim it!
