Lathemtown Farm Fresh Market: This Week at the Market
We sure are enjoying this fall weather! After spending the day planting and working on the farm, we all went to the Cherokee County Fair. It was my granddaughter’s first, so there were lots of pictures taken! I cannot wait to head up to Burt’s Pumpkin Farm again this year with her now that she’s a toddler.
So far I’ve got peas, beans, zucchini, butternut and buttercup sqaush, cauliflower, bok choy, and cucumbers planted from the greenhouse starts. Next up, broccoli, spinach, kale, swiss chard, Brussels Sprouts, fennel, dill, beets, turnips, and all the lettuces! Phew! That’s a lot of goodness to grow!
The hens are deciding to take a break. I am not getting enough to put eggs on the market right now, but will have them in the stand if I have extra on Saturday.
Don’t forget the stand is always open and has our white pumpkins, lots of Ellijay apples, our handcrafted vanilla extracts, jams, honey, bell peppers, a small amount of beans and figs as they come in.
Have a great week!

How do we know that the season has changed? Astronomical seasons depend on how the Earth moves around the sun. Equinoxes, when the sun lands equally on both hemispheres, mark the start of spring and autumn. Solstices, when the Earth sees its strongest tilt toward or away from the sun, kick off summer and winter. Yesterday was the autumnal equinox.
Did you know there are other ways to track seasons? For meteorologists, the seasons are defined by the months with temperatures and weather often associated with each. Summer, for example, runs from June through August, when temperatures feel most like “summer.”
My favorite season is summer. I must say, though, that the cooler weather of the last week or so is a welcome relief from the oppressive temperatures and humidity we have experienced this summer. Our home’s air conditioning units have taken turns being out of commission during some of the hottest weather we have had in years. Even my car’s air conditioning system had to be serviced a few weeks ago. Whew! Fall is a blessing!
Thank you for supporting Georgia Grown, no matter what season we’re in! We’ll see you at the Market.
