A message from Rachael:

Edible Plants for your garden!
Are you interested in growing more food within city limits?
Would you like some of your edible landscaping to be lower maintenance than a vegetable garden? How fresh would you like your breakfast fruit and berries?
A small group of local foodies (including us at Bailey's) have cooked up the possibility of a bulk wholesale purchase of edible trees and shrubs, including both imported and native plants. If you are interested, fill in the form (with more info) here ASAP.


I don't even want to talk about this weather. What better excuse to cuddle up with a bowl of popcorn though!

We need to stock up on dried beans over here. I am down to my last cup of red lentils and after this weekend's ham we might just need split peas too. Dinner tonight was split pea soup with the leftovers from Saturday's yummy ham - it smelled great in the crock pot all day!

When you're shopping the order form, look for:
  • Kim-Chi from Green Table Foods (now in the 'prepared' section - really) 3 sizes available!
  • Beans from Rounds - Stock up!
  • Flour from Oak Manor
  • Onions from Nith Valley - Nathan just found some extra in storage!
  • Spinach from Kingwood Farms - Now ready!
  • New cheeses from Monforte. Yum.
  • New Bean and Beef Tamales from McKechnie. (when you need more than their tortillas)
  • Organic Grass Fed Ground Beef from Vibrant Fams

Roasting Chickens - farm direct! New Date - Chickens will be now be available April 11th!
We're not offering these through Bailey's, but if you want to buy roasting chickens from Sam Bowman in Wallenstein. You can pick them up fresh at his farm on April 11th, but you need to call ahead to tell him how many you want! His number is 519-698-2960 and if you've never been to his farm before ask for directions. I hear it isn't GPS friendly.. =) The birds are $3.75/lb and about 5-6 lbs. They have been fed organic grain, raised inside with room to move around and will be processed at Country Poultry.

Follow the sun,
