Happy Memorial Day! This weekend brings to mind my brother, a retired U.S. Army Ranger. He served in Afghanistan and Iraq, then earned a law degree, and now works for a nonprofit legal firm that focuses on human rights. I am incredibly proud of all he has accomplished, and I know what he has sacrificed along the way.
I’m sure that like me, many of you have close loved ones who have served their country in one way or another, and who sacrified greatly for it. As you go about what are sure to be awesome, fun-filled weekend plans, please take a moment to honor them.
Be on the lookout for next week’s e-mail update, which will have a fresh, new look!
The customary reminder about our schedule: order between now and Monday at noon. Delivery takes place from 9:00 until 11:30 on Wednesday morning. If you live in downtown Greeneville or Tusculum, you can meet us at Takoma Hospital, or you can order delivery right to your door!
Otherwise, you can pick up your orders at Rural Resources on Thursday evening when we host our seasonal suppers (you can arrange other times to pick up by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 423-636-8171).
Thanks for your support of fresh, local food!

Local Product Highlights
Now about those fresh farm products!
New this week, we have turnip greens, an old southern favorite. See this week’s recipe for a quick, nontraditional way to prepare them.
We also have french breakfast radishes, a two tone radish which is milder and more tender than the more traditional Champion variety.
There are beautiful sage plants available. The herb itself has a variety of culinary and practical uses, and it also produces gorgeous flowers that attract beneficial critters to your garden.
