Last week for this season

This will be our last market for the season. We have six contestants
for the apple cobbler bake-off contest with three prizes of $50.00 for
first place, $30.00 for second place, and $20.00 for third place; that’s
a 50/50 chance of winning some cash. Gardendale Mayor Othelle Phillips,
Jimese Harkley, Community Liaison for America’s First Credit Union, and
Scott Cantrell, State Farm Insurance will be our judges. Come on out
and support our growers and vendors, and enjoy a piece of apple cobbler,
too.

Today – Sept. 18th

Due to the lack of rain, and hot temperatures, W&W Farms will not be
with us today. Bill Woodard will be sharpening scissors, knives, and
lawn mower blades. Today is the last day to sign up for the apple
cobbler bake-off contest. It’s predicted to be a nice day temperature
wise, and we hope to see you. Remember, next week is the last time
we’ll be operating for this season.

Two weeks left

This has been a very hot and dry season. Some of the crops have
suffered due to lack of precipitation and the abundant scorching humid
heat. I was informed that when we did have rain, recently, the water
rested on the peaches by the stem and eventually rotted them. As a
result, there wasn’t any honey to be sold, last week was the end of the
peaches, and the hens weren’t laying the normal amount of eggs. Apples
are now coming into season and could use more cold nights to stay in
good production.

We have two weeks to go before the end of this year’s season. In two
weeks, we’re having our “End of the Season Apple Cobbler Bake-off
Contest” sponsored by Hazelrig Orchards. The three judges will be
Gardendale Mayor Othelle Phillips, Community Liaison for America’s First
Credit Union, Jimese Harkley, and Scott Cantrell, State Farm Insurance.
The three prizes are $50.00 first prize, $30.00 second prize, and $20.00
third prize. We have three already committed and one that’s stated
they’ll sign up this Thursday. We do require five contestants. The
rules are listed below.

Bill Woodard will be attending this coming Thursday, the 18th, to
sharpen knives, scissors, and lawn mower blades. This will be his last
time for this year.
