McColloms Market: Market is Open - CHECK OUT Dandelion Farm
The January Market is now open and we have an exciting new addition. Dandelion Farm (see description below) is doing a trial run this month and if it works out, we’ll be offering their lettuces every month. There are two choices available:
1) Bag of Dandelion Farm Lettuce Mix – A colorful and mild tasting lettuce mix consisting of red and green leaf lettuces and romaine.
2) Bag of Ovation Greens mix – A spicy and nutty lettuce mix consisting of kale, tatsoi, mizuna, arugula, and mustard.
Each bag is 1/2 pound. The price per bag is $7.
If you’d like to order any of the lettuces, please make a note on your order or email me directly.
Harmony Hills is still on hiatus this month but will be back in February.
The Market will close Monday night as usual but please remember that pick-up will be next Friday, the 17th from 4:30 to 6:30 at my house.
Thanks so much.
*About Dandelion Farm*
At Dandelion Farms we utilize a vertical hydroponic growing system. This growing system is built inside a repurposed 40-foot shipping container. Growing in a closed environment allows us to grow lettuces and hearty greens year-round with weekly harvests. The container’s closed environment keeps unwanted organisms out, greatly reducing the need to use any harmful herbicides or pesticides. The use of hydroponics allows the farm to use 90% less water than traditional farming methods. We use approximately 1 gallon a day. All packaging supplies are reusable or compostable. Our desire is to grow as efficiently as we can with little impact on the environment.
Heritage Farm : Family Emergency
Greg’s Mother had a stroke and is in ICU. The prognosis is not good. We will have to suspend sales and delivery until such time as we can get her stabilized.
Your understanding is appreciated. We will update as soon as we can.

To Shop: Independence Farmers Market.
Our first workshop of the season is happening THIS Saturday! Learn to pack a 21/2 X 5 foot raised bed with a huge amount of vegetables! It’s easy to multiply by 5 so this works for larger gardens too. This is an interactive vegetable growing workshop for all skill levels. We’ll meet at the Grayson LandCare/IFM office at 104 Courthouse Street, Saturday January 11th from 9 am to noon. Cost is $15, pay at the door, and light refreshments will be served. Planting dates, spacing, interplanting and succession plantings will be addressed. Using information from the best national and local gardeners you’ll learn to apply these techniques to a single raised bed or a full-sized market garden. We’ll break into groups and design gardens for maximum production. We’ll also have our favorite tools, books and catalogs on display. Start planning for a successful garden now. The class is limited to 30 people. Please email Michelle Pridgen at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Our Grow Vegetables II workshop will be happening on Feb. 8th. Sign up now!
