Farm update – 11/5/2017

Welcome to the new Calamint Farms website! Our blog was launched on a rainy Saturday afternoon at the beginning of November. Now two full years and 100 blog posts later, it’s time that our web presence matured into being more than just a blog. When you land at our home page, you’ll find the three most recent blog posts featured right below the menu. You can slide through them by clicking on the arrows at the bottom right. Below the featured posts are quick links to some of the other site pages. Of course, you can still use the menu to navigate around the site: Home, About, Blog, Currently Available, Farm Fresh Recipes, and Cutting Board Gallery. Peruse the new site, and let us know what you think!

A couple of weeks ago I dropped a teaser about some upcoming good news about our cutting boards. Well…we are pleased to say that our cutting boards are featured in the gift article of the latest issue of Southwest Georgia Living Magazine. We’ve been busy creating new designs and styles, so check out our cutting board gallery if you haven’t done so recently!

Everything on the farm is growing well. We did indeed get a light frost early Monday morning, but the only damage was a few spots on some of the lettuces. The more frost-sensitive plants like peppers and basil didn’t notice a thing. That means we still have greens of all sorts, so whether you need salad greens, something for your smoothies, additions to a stir fry, or greens to cook down southern style, we’ve got you covered! We harvested the first of our kale and much-anticipated hakurei turnips, and are still harvesting green onions, peppers, and several varieties of radishes in addition to all those greens. It sure is fun being in the prime of the season!

  1. Farming is incredibly hard work. So just wanted you to know how much I appreciate the extra work you put into your weekly blog. I live in Tallahassee in a zero-lot home, retired, 72 years old. Your blog connects me to the earth and natural life. Wish I could visit your retail stand, but please know you are appreciated.
