Bedner's Farm & Greenhouse

Weekly News, 10.21.20


If you caught our Greenhouse Production Manager’s “Meet the Staff” article last week, you saw that her gardening advice was to “plant what makes you happy”. Well we’ve done just that in the recent months by starting a greenhouse produce program. It truly makes me so happy! I am doing a happy dance just like the silly squirrel below. Last week we started harvesting some of the greenhouse crops, and I’ve been eating amazing salads like this one here!

We hope that you stop by soon to enjoy the freshness too, and help us to spread the word!

Here’s what’s going on this week:

  • we’re offering a limited supply of fresh produce boxes this week. Orders have to be placed ahead of time online, and pickup options are this Saturday or Sunday between 10am-12pm.
  • fall bulbs have arrived, including daffodils, tulips and more.
  • our 8″ fall mums are in full bloom and on sale, 3 for $18. Fall and Halloween decor is now 60% OFF!
  • Maddison is teaching us about what we can be working on in the garden this fall and winter in the Ecological Gardening class tomorrow night. There is a virtual option for those who can’t make it in person.
  • fun family activities this weekend include a gardening for birds class this Saturday. All children will make a bird seed ornament to take home. Also up this Sunday is another addition of the popular sugar skull pumpkin painting workshop.
  • Russ, Katlynn and I will be at the Fall Fest at the Terminal in the Strip District this Sunday, October 25 from 11-3pm. We’ll have a few tables there with our fresh produce, wine, and more. There will also be other great local vendors, as well as a Halloween costume contest. Learn more here.

Enjoy the rest of your week and the warm weather!

Take Care


We are nearing the end of the growing season, but there still is plenty that you can do to give yourself a head start on next year’s season!   Join Maddison Perzel, Bedner’s Education and Events Coordinator, for a discussion on ecological fall gardening and how you can maximize your efforts out in the garden.  She’ll talk about the benefits of keeping those precious leaves that are cluttering up your yard and give you a few project ideas to tackle over the winter.  We all need some inspiration and projects to work on as the days get shorter and winter gets closer!
