Finally, the rare Meech's Prolific Quince Trees have arrived. The tree that started the whole Heirloom fruit Slow Food Grant proposal. It's taken nearly a full year for this to come full circle. Patience is not my strong suit. When I received the grant, I made arrangements with the only nursery in the US in which I could find them to have 5 of the 15 trees grafted this year to be set aside for me. I had to wait several months to even pay for them to see if the grafts would take and if the trees would be available.

Here is a close up the whips with the little leaf buds on them. They will go in the High Tunnel for winter protection. Meech's Prolific Quince a long with Black Republic Cherries and Tartarian Cherries, and Paw Paws, all compliments of a Slow Food Grant.

Speaking of Slow Food Grants;
Join us at the Luminary for a Slow Food Benefit to raise money for Local Farmer Biodiversity Grants. There will be information on other grant winners and their projects too.

 Examples of Auction items and Prizes are;
 An Heirloom Breed Certified Naturally Grown Turkey from Vesterbrook Farm, A 2 night stay at Nicola's Ozark Forest Mushroom Guest house-complete with mushroom tour, Red Fox and Whisk bakery gift certificates, Apples from Murray and Ringhausen Orchards, Bouquets from Urban Buds, Flowers from Flower Hill Farm and so much more.
Lots of your favorite vendors and farmers connected to Tower Grove and Schlafly Markets have donated.

We'll see you at Tower Grove Farmers Market first, its supposed to be sunny but cool and then at the Luminary for something else Cool...Slow Food.

God's Blessing on you and yours,


Sam and Bill,
