Happy Saturday to you all! First of all, I can’t believe I’m writing my 28th newsletter! Every week I wonder if I will have enough to write about, and I always do! That’s one of the things we love about Huck’s…..there’s never a dull moment with different holidays and seasons. It really is the perfect place for us!
How was your week? We have had a great week, except for that wind last weekend!! I am sure some of you lost your power. We were out for 48 hours. Sydney really enjoyed herself! When I picked her up from school on Monday and told her that we had electric again, she said, “Awww, I was having so much fun.” Lol. She must have thought she was Laura Ingalls.
In all seriousness, it makes for a very stressful time when the power is out. Everyone has to make sure loved ones are okay and clean up tree limbs and shingles. Some of you had much more damage than that to contend with. They are saying there could be gusts of 50-60 mph winds today, so let’s be praying that all will be well this weekend!
Last night we enjoyed ourselves at our Round Sign and Bow Making Class! I have added pictures of what everyone made for you to see! It’s amazing how unique they all are even when everyone was doing the same project! Also, scroll down to the EVENTS section of the newsletter to see the details for the Easter Cabbage Flower Arrangement. This would make the perfect addition to your Easter dinner table! We are making these next Friday evening and would love to have you come!
Here is our weekly update for outside!
Our first shipment of plants will be coming the week of April 11th! I am so looking forward to this!
Come get some ramps this weekend and try them in one of your special dishes!
Many of you have been asking about an old, heirloom tomato plant called an Anderson tomato plant. Jay Huck has some Anderson tomato seeds and is going to be growing some for us to sell at Huck’s! We will hopefully have 20 flats available, so you may want to call to make sure that you are on the list to get some! For those of you who are unfamiliar with Anderson tomato plants, they are indeterminate and grow a juicy, big, pink tomato. I actually have never seen one before, so I’m excited to try a couple of these plants in my garden this year!
Heirloom seeds are different than regular seeds. Heirloom seeds are seeds that have been around for at least 50 years without human intervention. Typically, they are regional and have been passed down for generations through families and communities. Most of you have heard about a Mortgage Lifter tomato. This popular heirloom tomato has a really neat story. It was developed in the 1930’s in Logan, WV by a radiator repairman named Mr. Byles. He crossed 4 of the largest tomatoes he could find and created this new, hardy tomato. Apparently, people drove 200 miles to buy his tomato plants for $1 each. Mr. Byles was able to pay off his $6,000 mortgage with the sales of his tomato plants in six years. That’s how it got’s its name “Mortgage Lifter”. A Mortgage Lifter tomato has a pretty pinkish-red flesh and is one of the best tomatoes for a summer BLT! You can read about all types of heirloom tomato plants at ohioheirloomseeds.com
We have gotten in some big jars of Vermicompost Tea by Earthbrew. You mix 1 cup with a gallon of water and it will fertilize your plants while keeping diseases and pests at bay!
New things are also happening on the inside……
This is the last week to get some Easter chocolates and goodies for your Easter baskets!
There are also lots of baked goods that would compliment your Easter dinner! We are now taking orders for our freshly baked rolls, pies, cookies, carrot cakes, bunny cakes, etc. Please have your orders for carrot cakes or bunny cakes in by Wednesday, so our bakers can prepare!
We will be CLOSED on Easter Sunday! I am so thankful for the cross and all that it means! The Lord is so very good!
NEW HOURS!! Now that winter is over, we will be extending our hours a little bit! Starting Monday, April 10th we will stay open until 6:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays we will stay open until 5:00 p.m.
One of Jim’s favorite things that he sampled at the Walnut Creek Food Show was the Walnut Creek Pastrami. We ordered some for the deli, and it came in last week. He says it is delicious!
You still have a couple of weeks to get your potato seeds and onion sets planted for a fall harvest. We have your choice of red, white, or yellow onion sets for just $1.79 per pound. Kennebec potato seeds are just $1.59 per pound. If you don’t want to plant in the ground, try one of the potato growing bags for an easy no digging option.
The Yoder’s Good Health Recipe Tonic is selling so well, that we thought we would add the Yoder’s Elderberry Syrup to go along with it. According to the website, “Organic Elderberries extracted in glycerin at low heat to retain the potency and benefits of the Elderberries. Raw honey and fruit juice are added in for a tasty, healthy, treat the whole family will enjoy. Suggested use: Take 1-2 spoonfuls a day.” It’s supposed to strengthen our immune systems, so we can fight off any bugs that come our way!
Have you tried the Amish wedding Old Fashioned Applesauce or the Old Fashioned Cinnamon Applesauce. They are both delicious for an easy side dish for supper or as a snack. You can really taste the difference compared to the applesauce you buy off the shelf at the grocery store. I love both of them equally!
We have added a couple of more items to the snack area. You can now pick up a bag of Key Lime Covered Pretzels, Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzels, and /or Mini Yogurt Covered Pretzels. Yum!
Velvet Ice cream is going to be coming back to Huck’s later this week! Here are the hand dipped flavors you will be able to get: Original Vanilla, Dutch Chocolate, Strawberry, Cookies and Cream, Mint Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Cherry Nut, Buckeye Classic, and Moose Tracks. You will be able to get cups or cones. I’ll give more details next week once it comes in!
We can take your business delivery orders starting on Monday, April 10th! We had to push it out one more week, but we are looking forward to offering this service to our wonderful customers!
