Dawson Local Harvest:  OOOPs and a Reminder!


Dawson Local Harvest for October 20th

OOOPs and a Reminder!

HI EVERYBODY!

First the OOOPs!
In talking about raw Milk in yesterday’s Weblog I forgot to mention that in the state of Georgia raw Milk is only approved for pet consumption. While some people would say that I am Leilani’s pet and therefore qualify, you should consider the state’s stance when contemplating any purchase.

DAILY BREAD has completed their move and are again listing on The Market. Also, COPPERHEAD HOMESTEAD has added some more cuts of their amazing grass-fed Beef to this week’s Market

Even if you have already ordered you might want to take another look at everything available for this week’s Dawson Harvest.

Thanks, Alan, Market Manager

Market News

I really felt like the rains we got last week signaled the start of cooler weather, but instead we got another week of mugginess. This time, though, I’m sure of it. The nighttime temps will be dropping down into the low forties for several days, and while the tomatoes and eggplant might hate that, the fall veggies are going to have a great time. The seedlings in my own garden have been waiting for a week like this, and I can’t wait for them to finally start outgrowing the summertime bugs that are munching on all their leaves. Our growers all have plants in the ground that need growth spurts, but after this coming week I think the spinach and lettuce and other fall greens will grow about as fast as they can cut them.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!

Market News

Hello!

Sure feels like Fall out there! We are finishing up Fall chores, like planting strawberries and garlic for next year, and sowing cover crop to nourish the soil.

There is a bounty of purple hull peas on the Market this week, so stock up
If you missed the opportunity earlier in the summer. Also the fall lettuce is in! There’s a great selection of both head and salad mix!

It is once again a very bountiful and diverse week of offerings on the Marketplace! Seriously, there is so much goodness in one place it is hard to know where else you could get all we have available!

The Bloomy Rind is back this week with a great curated selection of the finest artisanal cheeses! And have you tried an apple gallete yet from Dozen Bakery? It’s the perfect Fall treat!

We really appreciate all the support you show for Fresh Harvest and for all our farmers and small business owners!

See you Wednesday!
John and Tallahassee
