Plum Granny Farm Weekly Update

Posted 4/26/2013 8:59am by Cheryl Ferguson.

Happy Friday, Farm Friends! 

Busy, busy, busy as our bee friends!  Yes, Spring is in full tilt mode here at the farm!  And we are running around trying to stay ahead of the curve!  Got the 1/2 acre of potatoes in the ground this week -- a great accomplishment using Daddy's transplanter!  Now we'll have it ready to roll for other things such as the tomatoes and peppers!

Ready for some potato love?

We are excited that the King Farmers Market at the Stokes Family YMCA will start next Wednesday, May 1st!  We will be at that market every week with some other wonderful farmers.  Our motto there is "We Grow What We Sell" and that market has been doing that for 15 years!  What a gem!  Come out on Wednesday to the Stokes Family YMCA at 105 Moore Road in King and check it out!  Market hours are 11-1.

Tomorrow will be a busy day in Winston-Salem and part of the wonderful vibe is the Cobblestone Farmers Market!  The market is from 9-noon and is located at the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts (251 N. Spruce Street in downtown Winston-Salem -- 1 block off Fourth Street). 

At market this week, we'll have the following:


  • Asparagus (green & purple)
  • Spring Garlic
  • Sweet Salad Turnips
  • Baby Swiss Chard
  • Braising Mix
  • Garlic Powder and Granules
  • Transplants:  Basil (2 varieties)
  • Raspberry & Blackberry Jam
  • Yam Jam Sweet Potato Butter

Hope to see you at market tomorrow or Wednesday!  You can always call or email to let me know if you'd like me to save you something.

And for you strawberry lovers, here's a picture to let you know what's in store in the not too distant future!


This scene is probably about 3 weeks away!!

Happy Springtime Eating!
