I hope this finds you all doing well.

It turned out to be a very wet weekend. We ended up with over 4 1/4" rain. We are now a muddy mess. The pigs are all happy, with lots of places to splash around. Some of the rows are supper soggy. I hope we have a few days to dry out. Needless to say we missed to Crop Mob. They are going to try and reschedule in a few weeks.
So we are back to being behind schedule. We do need help strawing and staking/ cageing tomatoes, planting peppers, weeding rows and more. We work daily from 8-1 during the week and late day on Saturday and Sunday. Every little bit helps so stop by if you can.

The garden is very productive right now. The greens are perfect. We have plenty mustard, kale, Swiss chard, collards, turnip greens, beet greens, radishes, lettuce, braising greens, radishes and mushrooms.
We will also be making our way up to milky way this week so put your request in you comments section of your order.

We are down to our last few hog shares. They will only be available for a few more weeks.

Remember you have at least 21 meals to plan for this week, 28+ if you include your snacks. We hope some of your selections come from our efforts.

We enjoy being your farmers.

Thank you for all your support. Please remember to have your orders placed by 8PM on Wednesday. Pick ups are on Saturday from 9 to 10:00 am at the Piedmont Green Market (Double B Farm booth), Sandy Springs Green Market (Taylorganic booth) & the Brookhaven Farmers Market @ Brookhaven Baptist Church.

Thank you,

Crop mob canceled


We have canceled the crop mob event. It is going to be rescheduled for a day that is less wet. We got over 2 1/2 inches or rain yesterday so we are knee deep in mud.

We will try again in a few weeks.

Crop Mob on Sunday


This is just a reminder about our session with the crop mob on Sunday. I hope we get a bunch done. I wanted to extend another invitation to you all to come join us. We are going to have a fresh salad from the garden, potato salad, marshmallow salad and a home grown Boston butt. If you are interested in coming out to help I would greatly appreciate it. We have lot of weeding, planting, putting straw on tomatoes, hilling potatoes and setting up a rain catch off my work shop. It’s gonna be a tough task for the group so we need a few more. We hope to see you Sunday.

Thank you,
Brady
