Can you believe it is already November? We love this month because the Farmstand will be turning TWO, and our online website will have been live for ONE year! In November, we also will celebrate Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Small Business Saturday - the holidays are just around the corner.
Keep reading to learn what seasonal products are available at the Farmstand this month. Don't forget to check out our Pumpkin Care Tips to learn how to keep your pumpkins fresh all the way to Thanksgiving.
Available at the Farmstand
The Farmstand has hearty fall produce, fall artisan goods, and dried flower wreaths. Our fresh produce changes from week to week because we offer only the freshest seasonal items, so there will always be something new to grab.
Fruit and Veggies
Apples, Carrots, Collards, Herbs, Garlic, Kale, Lettuce, Microgreens, Mushrooms, Onions, Radishes, Sweet Potatoes, Swiss Chard, Pecans, Peppers, Pumpkins, and Winter Squash (Acorn, Spaghetti, Butternut, Delicata, and Kabocha).
We have transitioned to our dried flower bouquets, dried floral wreaths, and mini pumpkins decorated with dried flowers. All the dried flowers we use are from our farm and other local farms! After Thanksgiving we will begin making our holiday evergreen wreaths.

Plant in Your Garden
As the leaves fall off our trees and we have night temperatures below 32 degrees, you should wait to plant new seeds and seedlings until next year.
For the cool-weather plants you already have in the ground, it is important to keep an eye on the weather and cover them with frost cloth to protect them from freezing temperatures if needed.
Fruits and Veggies
For the most part, you will want to wait until the spring to plant any new fruit or vegetable plants. If you are able to cover plants at night to keep them warm, you may be able to still sow some carrot, lettuce, spinach, and radish seeds for a continuous supply throughout the winter. Garlic bulbs can still be planted in early November.
Bulb flowers love to be planted in the late fall or early winter in central Arkansas. We typically plant our tulip and daffodil bulbs in mid-December at Bell Urban Farm, but a good rule of thumb for bulbs is anytime in November or December for growing zone 8.
