New Field Farm's Online Market:  LETTUCE BEGIN!


Greetings,

We have a few items to offer now to begin the season and get the first taste of fresh greens.

There’s basil, arugula, lettuces, salad mix, swiss chard, and two kinds of parsley.

Please note:

For those items I can’t actually count (which is most of the crops) I have to estimate how much is available. I try to underestimate to be safe so if something is sold out you can ask for it in the comment section and we might be able to provide.

A reminder:

Orders can be placed after you receive this weekly email on Tuesdays. Orders are due by 8 AM Thursday morning, after which time you’ll be unable to order for that week.

PICK-UP is Fridays from 4:30 to 7:30 at the farm and 5 to 8 at Union Mill.

A suggestion:

We encourage those picking up at the farm to begin using their own cloth bags/boxes/crates/laundry baskets or such to cut down on plastic bags. This means dropping off two (2) bags or whatnot, with your name written on them some Friday. We’ll use one to fill your next order and then you bring back the empty the following week and pick up your new order in the second bag. And so on through the season. If your order won’t all fit in your bag we’ll use our regular plastic ones as well.
This won’t work at Union Mill because I don’t want to clutter up their lobby with our stuff during the week. They’ve been very accommodating about using their space for pick up for over 10 years.

It’s been a lovely June, though very dry, so we’re irrigating a lot right now, as well as planting and hoeing and doing all the other many tasks needed to get the season up and going.

Thank you for your support and we’ll hope for a good season.

Tim

Champaign, OH:  Tuesday Mania!


Your market managers have been crazy busy, this past weekend, with all things Hippie and the Farmer, getting ready to open for the season, busy with the strawberry UPick, busy with our individual businesses, and busy getting the gardens, greenhouse, and construction all accomplished, for our opening day, June 23, the first Saturday On The Farm, of the season!!

Soooo…here it is, Tuesday, and this is my reminder that the market will close, for the week, tomorrow morning…get your orders in!

Yes…we know that there is no lettuce…but our lettuce is coming on, strong, and will be added to the market, in the coming weeks! Along with our organic spinach, and chard!!

Yes…the asparagus is gone…Beth’s season has ended…

Yes…if you want strawberries, don’t wait…the season is short, but sweet!

Yes…not a lot of produce, yet…but, since we run the market, locally, according to the seasons, you get the best, of what comes into play, with each growth season. And now we are in the upswing of the growing season, and our producers will be adding produce, as it comes on…

Thank you for being amazing market customers!!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 farm, week of June10 2018


we’re heading into a long dry spell says the extended forecast. I’ll need to get irrigation set up for the outdoor gardens.

I cut hay on the weekend, very nice stand of waist high thick grasses and clovers. Now it has to dry and be baled before rain comes! I will sure appreciate any help from people on this list who can join in loading the wagon and moving the hay into the barn. Likely will be thurs to Sat timeframe. Please reply your willing and able, assuming timetable works. It’s not a lot of work, maybe 200 bales, easily done in couple hours with three to five people.

This week we have lettuce hearts, crisp and crunchy (Buttercrunch), mizuna, kale (two kinds) asparagus, arugula and herbs. There’s turnips, rhubarb, sweet cicely, lovage, dill and spearmint.

Pork sides are now sold, there will be select cuts available after butchering later this month.

On the climate front: I listened this week to a persuasive advocate for urgent action at radio ecoshock. I love this weekly broadcast of blue-chip scientists interviewed by Alex Smith on causes and effects of climate change. Michael Mielke calls himself "a “Cultural Transformation Engineer”. Earlier in his career, Michael led a movement to get tens of thousands of kids moved from state care to real families. He was the Executive Director for a movement that became the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act for Louisiana and the Gulf Coast, passed by Congress.

See a four minute appeal from Canadian climate scientist and evangelical Christian, Kathrine Hayhoe called Sound the Alarm

Of course if you haven’t already, follow me on facebook where I try to post the best of what I find.

Healthy eating,
Ian and Cami
