Manchester Locally Grown:  Reminder: Ordering Closes Tonight



Manchester Locally Grown market





Our pickup location is across the street from the Manchester City Schools administration building, at

216 East Fort Street, Manchester, TN

If you don’t see a map, click on the address link.




Good morning!




This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online this evening. This reminder is going out very late, so I’ll leave ordering open till about midnight tonight. Please don’t forget to order! But if you do forget, give me (Linda) a call in the morning. Chances are I’ll be able to get hold of the farmers and place a late order for you.

Remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Also please go to our Facebook page & like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word. Surveys indicate that word of mouth is the most effective form of advertisement. Please help us advertise our fantastic growing market!

See you on Thursday!


Blessings,
Michael & Linda

Miami County Locally Grown:  Spinach, Eggs, and Monarchs, oh My!!


The Miami County Park District offered a fantastic program this summer for young kids, all about Protecting the Pollinators, at the Piqua Public Library…

My kids loved it, and were then inspired, when we were harvesting Milkweed pods, to offer the seeds to their “Market friends” :-)

Beautiful favorites of many pollinators, including the American Monarch, we’ll have Milkweed seeds available for anyone interested at pick-up!!

This week the Market sees the return of Simple Living Farm’s Spinach, and next week their sweet Carrots will be back!!

More Eggs are available this week, even though the hens’ production is dropping, whether from the cold, the diminishing sunlight, or this being the time for them to molt (and when they lose their feathers, they don’t lay eggs!! Ah!!

And 6635 StudeBaker has a new loaf this week… Pizza Crust Bread! Great toasted for mini pizzas :-)

Lake Placid Online Farmer's Market:  October Market


Hello everyone,

I just returned yesterday late evening from my grandmother’s funeral, so apologies for not sending a message sooner. Friday was supposed to be the day the market opened, but I have not heard from the farmers about continuing, so I did not want to open it without knowing for sure that we would have it. When I hear back from them I will send out a notice.

Thank you for your patience and I hope to be back in touch soon.

Thank you,
Christie

New Field Farm's Online Market:  Some honey and spinach


Greetings,

The honey was extracted yesterday and we can offer some in 1/2 pound jars this week. The initial limit is one jar per household, but if you want more please ask in the comments section and we’ll provide if there’s extra. Any honey not ordered or asked for this week will be offered next week.

As for a bulk order, there isn’t much bulk to be had this season, except for potatoes, ginger, some garlic, and maybe a few onions and cabbage. Whatever is available next week will be discounted.

The deer pawed off the row cover from the remaining carrots in the field and ate every last one. There weren’t that many, but it was still an unwelcome surprise. I have a few in the cooler from last week, but that’s all that remains. It’s strange and unusual not to have bulk carrots for the winter. And sad.

We can make another harvest of spinach (if the deer don’t get it first!), as well as salad mix, arugula, and some lettuce from the greenhouse.

We’ve had a light frost and may get a freeze Thursday night. I know the season is winding down when I walk in the cooler and think for a second that the compressor isn’t working cause it feels so warm.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments as we wrap up the season.

Enjoy a few days of sun!

Tim
