What's New On The Farm?, Issue #008

February On The Farm
Hello and welcome to another newsletter from the farm! It is a beautiful day. Yesterday and today have hit the 80s but tomorrow morning it will be back in the 30s.
We started running a TV commercial on MeTV about four weeks ago and ever since, we have been so busy with customers and orders that we don't know what to do. It has been great and we should have done a TV commercial years ago!
You can see our TV ad here: dgstvcommercial2021
David's Garden Seeds® started showing our new TV commercial on MeTV and KSAT in the San Antonio and surrounding areas four weeks ago. The commercial shows that we have over 1600 varieties of seeds. It was shot back in September of 2021 and we now have 2,012 varieties of seeds.
We have had a wonderful response with a big increase in orders as well as many new visitors to our farm store until the weather started to get cold this Wednesday. Have you seen our commercial? If so, our son, Matt, wrote the jingle at the end and he is singing and playing it on the commercial.
I know...I go on and on about the commercial but I am so excited about it!
Meanwhile, we have plants growing or starting to grow in our greenhouses. Once the chance of freezing is over, we will begin to plant in all of our raised beds around the property. This week, we planted ten new pecan trees that we bought from Swift River Pecans last week near Seguin.
Matt is working on our fish pond, cleaning out the algae that loves to grow in there.
One of our rabbits is expecting so we will have bunnies, hopefully, soon.
We lost a hen several weeks ago. She just dropped dead and she wasn't even two years old. The rest are fine. They are putting out more eggs now because someone told us to leave the henhouse light on at night. We started last week, and we have a lot more eggs. This is only necessary during the colder months.
Our greenhouse plants will be ready in about four weeks for spring planting. There are a lot of tomato, pepper, and greens plants and more. We will let you know on the David's Garden Seeds website David's Garden Seeds website as well as this website when the plants are ready to sell for spring planting.
David will host our first canning class on Saturday, February 26 at 11am. He will be canning carrots because that is what is ready right now. He has had several sign up but we still have some spaces. It is $20 per adult and it will take three to four hours because canning takes a while. You can take some canned carrots home with you for $1.50 a jar if you participate in the class.
There will not be childcare provided so please do not bring any children with you as we don't want them to get hurt in our commercial kitchen.
To sign up, send an email to David at DavidsGardenSeeds (firstname.lastname@example.org) and David will put you down for the class. You will pay here when you come in for the class.
Thank you to each of you who have placed orders with us or who have come by the store to get seeds, homemade canned goods, and eggs.
Juanita aka Mrs. David's Garden Seeds®
