Bundle for you, which includes one of our larger-than-life
mums, a straw bale and a bundle of corn shocks.
We invite you to come and see how easy it is to have a great looking autumn display. Everything we sell for fall is locally grown, right down to the straw we stuff our scarecrows with. So you will know, as you look at the beautiful flowers on your mums, or gaze at the unique scarecrow you built with your own hands, that you are being kind to our environment as well as supporting your local economy.

as a pediatric nurse, I had the difficult assignment of giving
immunization shots to children.
day I entered the examining room to give 4 yr old Lizzie her shot.
No, No!” she screamed.
scolded her mother, “That’s not polite behavior.”
little girl yelled even louder,
thank you! No, thank you! No, thank you!”
– It’s time to get your flu shot.
This recipe was submitted to us for our zucchini recipe
contest several weeks ago. I made it, brought it in, and got good
reviews. When I served it
at home, my grown children couldn’t tell it had zucchini in it, and
loved it. Many thanks to Kathy V. who also submitted a terrific zucchini
bread recipe that I have now made several times. It’s better than my
own usual recipe.

Peace in the Playpen
Mary was almost crazy with her three young kids.
She complained to her best friend Judy, “They’re driving me
They give me no rest! I’m halfway to the funny farm!”
“What you need,” said Judy, “is a playpen.”
So Mary bought a playpen.
A few days later, Judy called to ask how things were going.
“Superb! I can’t believe it,” Mary said.
“I get in that pen with a good book and a chocolate bar,
and the kids don’t bother me for hours!”
SEE YOU SOON!!!
