I was so tickled when I came across this 1911 Thanksgiving Dinner Menu listing Rhubarb Pie as the final item. Just this morning I'd spoken with a friend about bringing Strawberry-Rhubarb Pies to her home next Thursday, noting that while not the traditional Pumpkin Pie, we do have lots of Rhubarb in the garden right now, and everyone loves my pies! It's great to see that, indeed, Rhubarb was the pie of choice a hundred years ago; I'd say it's time to bring it back to the Thanksgiving table!!
By the way, Pre-Ordering for Rhubarb Crowns begins in 2 weeks! I promise, you will love growing this beautiful Perennial Vegetable!!
Well, that's it for the moment, Friends...
We do wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving, and we hope to see you (and your gardening pals) here next Saturday, the 25th for our Green Saturday Sale!
Many thanks, and Happy Harvests, Jo Anne, Alex, Lalo, Jake & Charlie

In spite of the crazy weather, Fall really is here...
...and we've been very busy seeing customers at the Home Nursery and planting out our own Fall garden.
The days are warm, but the nights are cooler, and the Fall seedlings know it's "their time"!
Our first round of Broccolini, Cauliflower, Brussels, planted at least a month ago, haven't been fazed in the least by the high temps, so don't feel you need to wait. It's a short season, but if we're quick about it, we can get in 2 rounds before it's back to Tomatoes and Peppers again!
Now's the time...
We just received our Certified Organic seed Potatoes two days ago! We also got in our gorgeous Onion & Leek transplants. And we're still well stocked on a variety of Garlic and Shallots! These guys have a very limited "window"; so now's the time to get them planted!!
They all grow beautifully in 25-gallon Smart Pots, and so toencourage you, we're offering 10% off Smart Pots, Soil, and all Potatoes, Onions, Leeks, Shallots and Garlic at next Saturday's
