Happy Easter weekend to you all! I am looking forward to a great holiday weekend! We plan on coloring Easter eggs, hunting eggs, cooking, and relaxing. Most importantly, we are going to be celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus! AMEN to that!
We have been on Spring Break this week and have enjoyed every minute of it! We got to spend a couple of days over at Hocking Hills for Jim’s birthday. That’s a great place to go, and it is nice that it’s not that far away! Thanks to all of you who sent well wishes to Jim on his birthday. He said how nice that was!
Here’s the weekly update for the outside……
It’s finally time!!! The first delivery of plants and flowers will start this week! Ferns, hanging baskets, strawberry and rhubarb plants, vegetable plants, Black eyed Susans with trellis, and combination flower baskets! If you get a chance, stop in later this week to add some early color to your outside.
Since I have had a little extra time this week, I have been reading more about heirloom tomatoes! In fact, I think I have found myself a new gardening hobby! Heirloom tomatoes cross pollinate naturally from bees. Since they are mostly regional, they are usually pest resistant and have developed immunity to many diseases over time. They also have a wide variety of shapes and colors.
I have another neat story about an Ohio heirloom tomato called Aunt Lou’s Underground Railroad. These tomato seeds crossed over the Ohio River at Ripley, Ohio by an unnamed slave fleeing to the North from Kentucky. He gave some seeds to an older woman named Lou who gave them to her great nephew. As one gardener on the website tomatoville.com said, “If this man thought this tomato was special enough to bring with him on his journey to freedom, then it is special enough to be in my garden.” This is a pinkish-red, juicy tomato. I am going to grow some this year, and hopefully will get enough seeds to start some plants for all of us for next year!
Just a reminder that we are now taking orders for the Anderson tomato plants again this year! I am trying to find the history of this heirloom tomato, but I’m having some trouble. I have read it’s from Pennsylvania, and I have heard it was from West Virginia. If you know its history, please call or message Huck’s, so we share this information with our readers and customers.
We still have some white and red onion sets left. Price is $1.79 per pound.
Kennebec potato seeds are available as well!
Earthbrew Vermincompost Tea is on the shelf ready for fertilizing your veggie plants and flowers!
Here is our inside update for the week to come…..
We will be closed on Easter Sunday!
NEW HOURS start on Monday! Our hours will be extended until 6:30 p.m. through the week and until 5:00 on Saturday and Sunday.
Stop in for your last minute Easter basket goodies or items for your Easter celebration!
We are excited to announce that Velvet hand-dipped ice cream is back after a few years at Huck’s! We have nine delicious flavors which include: Original Vanilla, Dutch Chocolate, Strawberry, Moose Tracks, Buckeye Classic, Mint Chocolate Chip, Cherry Nut, Cookies and Cream, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. We have cups and cones now, and we are looking for containers to make some hand pressed pints as well. Prices start at $2.79! Makes me think summer is coming!
The owners of Duck Creek Candle Company have been busy making potpourri! They have stocked the candle cupboard at Huck’s with large sizes of Country Apple and small sizes in a variety of scents. When you are doing your spring cleaning, there’s nothing better sprucing up your decor with new potpourri!
Cornerstone Homestead has also been in to restock. There is a new product for the bearded men of Huck’s, Beard Oil! It comes in Unscented, Clover and Aloe, Tobacco and Bay, and Midnight Forest. These come highly recommended and smell great! The salves are filled up, and there are new soaps. There is one called Gardener Soap. It looks perfect for scrubbing up your hands and nails after a day in the dirt!
Vicky from Hot Chocolate Bombs and More brought in some solid chocolate bunnies for Easter. They come in sets of three in a combination of Cookies and Cream, Peanut Butter, Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate. Plus, they are so cute. They look like real, tiny baby bunnies!
Audrey made 10 more bracelets in different patterns and colors! She is also going to be making more mini lip glosses ASAP. She started with 50 and now there are only 2 left. She is so happy that you all like them!
Instead of throwing away the ends and scraps of the meats and cheeses, we have decided to make up little doggie bags for your 4-legged pooches. A bag of scraps is only $1.50. Your furry BFF will enjoy a treat bag from Huck’s every once in a while!
Have you seen our freshly baked blueberry muffins? They are big and full of blueberries. They are perfect for breakfast or a snack. Try it with a pint of Florence Creamery’s flavored milks.
We are now selling delicious egg salad! I think some people are put off by the name, but if you like deviled eggs, you will think this egg salad is tasty!
Two new snack options are packaged up and ready to go! Peanut Butter Crunch is similar to the always popular Puppy Chow. It is rice biscuit cereal squares covered with a peanut flavored coating, milk chocolate and powdered sugar. The Honey Island Mix includes: Honey roasted peanuts, honey roasted sesame sticks, banana chips, dried pineapple, dried papaya, roasted salted cashew pieces. Yum!
We have the most delicious salsas….Pineapple, Mild, Spicy, Peach, etc., but have you ever tried the Walnut Creek tortilla chips? They come in white corn and yellow corn. My favorite thing about them is they are the perfect bite size. Hopefully, you will try a bag the next time you stock up on some salsa!
Customer Suggestion: The Amish Wedding Cinnamon Peach Syrup and Vanilla Peaches are delicious on top of pancakes. That sounds like a winning combination! Thanks for the recommendation!
Huck’s can do all sorts of custom made meat, cheese, veggie, and sandwich trays. These are perfect for meetings, get togethers, reunions, funerals, etc. You can call, message us on Facebook, email us at email@example.com, or send us a fax at 740-373-0024.
