Thweatt Things: Added a new item this week, the Walker Tote organizer fits over most walkers and makes a stable holder for newspapers, remotes, fiber arts and crafts, tissues, phones and water bottles. These lightweight totes are made of cotton and completely washable. These make great gifts for the elderly who rely on walkers for mobility. Or Mother’s with strollers to keep items handy.

The start-up of school means more time to sew and I’m doing just that. This fall I’m featuring handmade Egg-gathering Aprons in both adult and kids sizes. These are made from 100% cotton, pre-washed and machine washable and dryable for easy care. The pockets for the eggs are large enough to accommodate a larger egg (like a duck egg) or a couple of hen eggs. These could also be useful for crafting or any other activity where small pockets might come in handy. Check out my posts for pricing info. I can also customize them for you if you’d like a matching adult/child combo. Thanks for looking.

Martin's Farmstand:  U-Pick Grapes

It is autumn and harvest time. There are so many good things to eat at the farmstand. I have a tub of edamame (green soybeans) today and napa cabbage. Eggplant, tomatoes, onions and peppers (sweet and hot) are in their prime. The grapes on our trellis are ripening with peak quality next week and the following week. I have them by the quart or half bushel box ($20) U-pick grapes are $10 per half bushel. U-pick is available anytime the stand is open- Bring you own clippers. U-pick fall raspberries also are in season- the spotted wing fruit fly is limiting the crop quanity and quality though. The apple crop is really good this year. Yesterday we went over in the evening to the old farm and picked 40 bushels of sweet sixteen apples from just a few trees. We have both first quality and sauce/ cooking apples that are completly organic. Enjoy this season. Daniel
