Champaign, OH:  Wednesday Comes Calling

And, it’s calling for you…and your orders…by 8am, this morning!!

Your market manager was scarce, in blogging, this week. My daughter is home, preparing to make a big move into a big new job in a far away state…so, my time has been divided between her, the move, and with Hippie and the Farmer, as we burned the midnight oil, all last week, finishing the construction and painting of our new mobile festival kitchen, and as we spent the weekend in music festival mania…

So, it’s back to reality time…and ordering time…

Give it to me…

New Field Farm's Online Market:  Rain, rain, go away.!


As you can probably guess, these are challenging conditions for all the crops, not to mention for anyone trying to enjoy the summer. Or anyone trying to sow, plant, hoe, or even mow. I keep a rain/irrigation chart and it shows 16 days (and nights) of rain (about 12 inches) out of the last 23 days when this latest extended period of wet weather began. With more on the way! Add in heat, humidity, fog, and then a day when it felt good to take a hot shower and, well, we’ll see how the rest of the season goes. Having a well-drained sandy loam soil is very helpful in this situation, but we need the air to dry out, too.

So far, the vegetables are hanging in there, but production has slowed down in many cases. As ever, if an item you want is sold out please ask for it and we’ll do what we can.

We try to pick the best looking field tomatoes, but the heavy rain we’ve had can cause some marks and cracking, as you may have noticed. This shouldn’t affect the quality too much, but you may have to eat them sooner than later, especially with this humidity.

In any case, on we go.


Manchester Locally Grown:  Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm

Manchester Locally Grown market

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

Good morning!

This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online by 10 pm this evening.

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!

Market News

The summer afternoon rains are here and it’s a little soggy in the Suncoast! This is the time of year small farms are preparing for fall crops, and we are no exception. We have turned off the water on the majority of the summer greens in preparation of transplanting new seedlings. So, unfortunately our offerings on the market will be very little for the next few weeks.

For all of us who live and love our Florida Suncoast, we are with a heavy heart over the loss of all the sea life washing ashore dead from Ft. Myers to Tampa.  So many people and businesses have been  impacted, like charter boat captains, commercial fisherman,  bait  and tackle shops, to  hotel and beach cottage rentals, from the RED TIDE and TOXIC ALGAE from Lake Okeechobee. Our beaches are empty, but if you try to walk the beach, the smell of dead and rotting fish and RED TIDE burn your eyes and the inside of your nose and throat. The finger of blame is pointed everywhere, and many fingers are pointed at  big agriculture.
This is not new, the problem has been growing for at least 30 years. So isn’t NOW the time to resolve the problem permanently and look  objectively  to the “economic opportunities” in other parts of the state that are overshadowing the overall health of Florida and the planet? 

We welcome all the  new members who are  signing up for the on line market. We made a decision long ago to keep costs at a minimum for members, growers, and producers  and that includes not charging a membership fee.for the on line farmers market.   For those of you who are new to the market, please remember we are small farms, with a small margin of profit, if  you fail to pick up or pay for your order, you  may be impacting the financial health of the small farm, and their willingness to participate in the on line farmers market..  

A reminder:
You should be able to click on FLORIDASUNCOAST.LOCALLYGROWN.NET on the above contact box, and it should take you right to the MARKET page.

We sit here this evening with our fingers and toes crossed and pray for a mild hurricane season. We are thankful for the daily rain that is changing our brown pasture and yard to a gorgeous green. As we enjoy the beneficial rain showers, we read about the 66 tons of dead fish that washed up on Sarasota beaches last week and really hope and pray that excessive rain fall stops flowing to our Florida Rivers south to Lake Okeechobee…What would it look like if we had another dump of toxic algae into our Gulf of Mexico look like?

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!
