Well, it's Labor Day and summer has finally arrived! Like all the farmers in Middle Tennessee, we have had loads of rain and relatively mild temps up until now. But now, KATIE-BAR-THE-DOOR!!! We are experiencing the traditional summer heat now!
Once again we will be hosting a lecture/farm tour for INTERNATIONAL HOMESTEADING EDUCATION MONTH sponsored by Mother Earth News and GRIT magazines. Our event titled "EXTENDING YOUR GROWING SEASON WITH GREENHOUSES AND OTHER COVER STRUCTURES" will be held on September 28th, 2013, with a lecture, farm tour, some small workshops, food, live music by reknown Nashville artist Shannon Cain, and a bonfire. Tickets are $20 per person or $30 per couple. Call 615-408-4097 to make a reservation.
We have been holding sustainable agriculture lectures and they have been a great success. If you have ever been interested in growing your own food, you won't want to miss these informative lectures!! Send us an e-mail if you are interested and we can forward a schedule.
Our newest addition is our natural mosquito repellent: It is made of natural essential oils that flying things HATE, like peppermint and lavender oils. Works like a charm without all those chemicals and icky mess.
Market season, as well as the CSA deliveries, keep us busy busy busy.
Fall is coming fast, so we are busy clearing beds and planting fall crops, and keeping busy!
Did I mention that we here at Double Star Bar Farms are busy? Yes, yes we are!
