It’s still early in the season ,but we have some new veggies and other items on the market this week. It has been really exciting to drive around Greene County and see fields finally filling up with young plants. Melissa and Katee, the Rural Resources farmers, have been busy planting tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, and other crops that will be ripening before you know it!
A 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—and happy Mother’s Day to all you amazing moms out there!

Local Product Highlights
This week we have two new greens: Mizuna, a peppery Asian green somewhat similar to arugula, and rouge d’hiver, a red romaine.
If you’re looking to get your own garden started, we have some plant starts for sale, such as sage. The teen program is also selling bags of rabbit manure. This is an excellent soil amendment that can be applied directly to your garden without composting!
There is still plenty of pastured pork sausage from animals raised by teen program participants. This mild, flavorful sausage has gotten rave reviews from everyone who has tried it.
