Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 farm, week of Mar 20 2015


We’ve had some cold nites, below freezing outside, just down to zero in the greenhouse so little damage to the new seedlings. Growing food is getting trickier with the climate variability.

“Joel Salatin” the famous modernday permaculture farmer, :http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/97339/joel-salatin-promise-regenerative-farming was interviewed on Peak Prosperity recently. I’d say its worth reading or listening to. “I think that too often consumers take the convenient way out and say ‘Well, if farmers would just do things differently, everything would be better.’ The truth is that farmers have always followed the market. If people refuse to buy genetically modified organism food, farmers won’t produce it. It’s really that simple. It doesn’t take a government agent, a bureaucracy, a police state, a new law. I mean, all of this could be changed just by consumers taking a more active and aggressive role at financing what they say they believe in from the outset.”

The Family Food Freedom rally in Newmarket last week was successful in bringing out over 200 people to stand witness that we want the right to choose what food we eat. In the same week, General Mills (think Cheerios) announced it would be labelling GMO content on its food products, as already is the case with Campbells Soup.
West Virginia legalized cowshares for raw milk for human consumption. Slow progress.

Another reminder that fresh pastured lamb for Easter is an option. We have whole and half leg of lamb, bone in or deboned, chops, loin roast, shanks, ground, kabob, stew and organs. Am offering advance ordering for pork sides. If you want kabobs made up on skewers like in the photo, pls make order.

Egg prices reduced to $6.75 for jumbo, $6.00 for XL, $5.50 for Large. Getting lots of duck eggs now too.

Chicken broth will be a regular offering for the spring.

As of Mar 20th , we can offer the following crops: leeks, kale, chard, spinach, cilantro, turban squash, purple potatoes and arugula.

Camelia is cooking prepared foods from our produce: chicken broth, chicken casserole meat, apple sauce, stuffed peppers, cucumber relish, quiches (on order).

Healthy eating
Ian, Cami and Kazlyn
PS Kaz is growing oyster mushrooms here for the first time: now fruiting.

Once again the weather in Kentucky strikes again. I have only experienced weather like this in Nevada, where it was known to snow in June.
I wanted everyone to know about a great class the Caldwell County Extension office is putting on Backyard Gardening.
The class is on March 28th from 6-8pm at the Caldwell County Extension Office. Please call their office at 270-365-2817 to register before the 25th of March. It looks to be a great class for our community.
We look forward to seeing everyone on Friday,
Angela

Champaign, OH:  Dancin' In The Moonlight


We get it almost every night…
and when that moon gets big and bright…
it’s supernatural delight…
everybody was dancin’ in the moonlight…
(Dancin’ In The Moonlight- King Harvest)

An early morning post to the little local market of love! If you are awake, I urge you to go to a window, or venture outside, and look at the beauty of the moon…it was so amazing when I got up, way so early, and was having coffee before I started to bake.

The moon…I love the dark, clear skies, the twinkling stars, and the different phases of the moon. So comforting, so assuring, so mesmerizing.

Growing up in the West End, there used to be lots of backyard campouts, as all of us would put our tents up, and our parents would allow us to sleep outside, telling ghost stories, running the West End, through backyard games of late night tag, Ghost In The Graveyard, and generally running around like a bunch of crazy loons. Flashlight tag would result in all of our parents coming out to yell at us for waking up the neighbors. We would all settle down, tell ghost stories, try to levitate each other with the whole light as a feather thing, and then sneak off on our bicycles for late night biking on the country roads that surrounded the West End.

Good times…the highlight would be the moon and star gazing. I would sit while the others would be running around, and just stare, dream, plan, and scheme, while looking at the vast night sky.

The moon, this morning, reminded me of those carefree days, the coming of the warmer weather, and then my thoughts turned to…OMG…this weekend, with the time change, last weekend, is…EASTER!!

So, while thinking moonbeam thoughts, I also want you to think Easter thoughts!! Get your lists ready, get your orders in!! Will you be baking, grilling, entertaining, coloring eggs, making the whole dinner?? Will you need to serve breads, rolls, sweet rolls? Will you need a variety of meats for Easter breakfast, lunch, dinner? Eggs for coloring, eating, making breakfast casseroles? Maple Syrup and honey for Easter sweetness? Dried herbs and seasonings for all of the yummy Easter dishes to go along with the dinner? Eggs, flour, gluten free flours and mixes, for baking? Pies, cookies, candies, confections? Granulated garlic in all varieties? Jams, jellies, mustards, a bit of candied jalapeno…all to add to dishes or to serve alone? Milk for more baking, and drinking…my grandmother used to make us Easter Milkshakes! Don’t forget to give your home and yourself some love, too! Scented candles, soaps…all groovy for making it a lovely day…

So, go look at the moon, get your Easter list started, and don’t forget to order by 10pm, tomorrow evening!

Peace, Love, Good Vibes…
