- We have just gotten in stock the neatest "recycled" tote bags for sale. They are made by Poe Powell and make great bags for the farmers market or grocery shopping.
- Sweet potato slips (Covington and Beaugard) will be in the last of May. Call and get your name on the list and we will call you when they come in. They are a little later this year due to the cool weather. However, let me give you some tips. You really should not plant sweet potatoes until the beginning of June. They are a tropical plant and like it really warm. If they get too cool, they are messed up for the season. They form hard little balls and don't mature properly. Also, if they are planted too early in the season the potatoes can get huge. Ours will be the "cut" plants not the "pulled". I know it is hard to believe but the "cut" plants will actually grow better than the pulled. It only takes a few days and the slips are sending out little roots in search of water.
