It looks like you've taken all the right actions.  Actually, I can
confirm that it looks like it's working now, from here.  One thing you
might want to take care of is to also add an A record for "@" (meaning
jonnsorganicvegetables.com with no subdomain prepended) pointing to the
same address.  Currently there is no record for that name.  Often, lazy
browsers (like myself) will type in a domain name just like that.  If
you add that entry as well, then both jonnsorganicvegetables.com and
www.jonnsorganicvegetables.com should work (assuming your webserver
isn't doing some name-based virtualhosting that won't allow that without
some reconfiguration).
