This post is from October 12.
The Hawthornes are in Georgia.
This is Jaemor Farm Market off Highway 365 in Alto, Georgia.
And we had to stop here.
The Echols family at Jaemor Farms has been harvesting crops from this land for 100 years.
Three generations currently work the farm, with a fourth generation waiting in the wings. What was once a stopping destination for travelers is now the largest roadside market in the country.
I so wanted to buy a rock,
but Mr. Hawthorne said no.
Rosie pouted for a while.
They had a huge angel's trumpet plant
which I patted down for seeds
and could not find the first one.
After looking it up,
I found one can propagate this by stem cuttings.
Wish I'd know that when I was here.
Also, I found out that all parts of this plant are poisonous,
so it would work in very nicely with my castor bean plants.
The BBQ smelled wonderful.
I wanted to send Mr. Hawthorne to check out the corn maze,
but he would not cooperate.
Here's their picking calendar:
