Thanks for a fabulous peach season!  We had to rely on other orchards for the most part, but the peaches were really tasty this year.  Now, we are on to apple season.  We have nine varieties in the shop:  Honey Crisp, Mutsu, Granny Smith, Jonaprince, Jonagold, Golden Supreme, September Wonder, Red and Golden Delicious.  Jerry will make regular trips to Blue Ridge to get more as they ripen. Check Facebook each week for updates.

Our cool season veggie six-packs have arrived along with the first mums.  In the next couple of weeks as the weather cools off (we hope), seasonal color will begin arriving in the form of pansies, violas, snapdragons, etc.

Our first perennials for fall planting have arrived.  Asters, Mexican sage, perennial mums, hostas and more.  Another shipment will arrive next week with other favorites.

Jerry is hard at work each Friday and Saturday smoking pork loins. We have sandwiches and plates starting at 11am, and meat by the pound and half loins available.  It is the perfect game day meal or fall picnic lunch.  Call to reserve the loins so we can make sure we have enough!  

Are you interested in having a raised bed garden? We have teamed up with Super Sod to simplify the experience! You can plant herbs, vegetables and ornamentals in the beds without having to deal with the heavy, red clay that is so prevalent in Georgia. Visit their website for more information:
