Good day All,

Hope you are all well, This week I will be at the VG in my regular spot from 730 to 130 if weather permits, if you do not find me in my regular spot (because its raining), I will be set up inside the cafeteria so no worries I will be there if you are coming to pick up an order🙂

This weekend is the weekend I make my special pickles (Lady Ashburnham ), quantity will be minimal this year so once they are gone, they are gone unfortunately. No worries if you placed an order for them you will be getting them.

I will have all my products this week once again, busy time of year but I’m keeping up ok so far. I may have to cut back on some products once this year is over… I will let you know shortly after Christmas which products will be dropped off my list.

I hope you all understand that there is only just one of me ( thank god!! ) and I don’t want to close shop yet but I will have to cut back if I want to keep going. Between me doing all the cooking and Colleen doing the rest…its getting harder on us every year… good problem to have but good or bad it’s still a problem🙂

We are blessed with wonderful customers and we appreciate you all. Can you believe were going on 12 years!!!

Cheers

Pat🙂

JULY 27TH, 2016

Good evening Folks,

Just a quick note to let you know that we will be setup at Northwood manor tomorrow from 9am to about 2pm just next to the hairdresser in the hallway. We will have everything there, Chow, Sweet pickled beets, Sweet mustard pickles, Dills, Relish, all my jams and jellies and even fudge(s)

Friday I will be at the VG at 730 til 130, not sure if I will have fudge or not yet…this time of year is hard for me to find the time to make fudge…Chow, beets and pickle season takes so much of my time…only one of me ( I know..thank god!! :-))), I can only do so much in 24 hours…beside a few hours sleep here and there🙂

I will deliver a fresh order to “Natures Cove” or “The Cove” on the Bedford highway tomorrow so they will have my products on their shelves once again by noon tomorrow. I will also have my products into a new store in St-Margarets bay area, once I know the name and address I will post it. The new store from Noggins Corner farm is now open in Hammond plains across the street from the B.M.O. center at the Sante Center and it is some beautiful folks and they carry all of my products.

Why don’t I retail the Sweet mustard pickles is a question I get asked a lot, because I do not use any chemicals into my mustard sauce ( same with my corn relish), when the jars sits on a shelf for a little bit in the light or the sun it turns the mustard sauce white and it doesn’t look good (same good flavor but since we do eat with our eyes first..), that’s why I keep mine in a box at the outdoor  market and that’s why I’m the only one that sells my Sweet mustard pickles. So now you know🙂

I heard through the grapevines that fresh Valley corn will be at the VG this week from Elmridge Farms and Noggins Corner Farm…yeah!! had some today.. its yummy as always

See you on Market day folks

Cheers

Pat
