McColloms Market:  April Market Is Now Open


Hi All:

The April Market is now open until Monday night. Please note that this will be the last market session until the Fall when I’ll start it up again in October.

Also, unfortunately, Dandelion Farms had an equipment failure a couple of weeks ago and, although Jenni has replanted, I don’t think she’ll have lettuce to harvest until after next week’s pick up. If I hear otherwise, I will let you know.

Thanks and have a good day.

Champaign, OH:  We Are Stardust


Said, “I’m going down to Yasgur’s Farm
Gonna join in a rock ‘n’ roll band
Got to get back to the land
Set my soul free”

We are stardust, we are golden
We are billion-year-old carbon
And we’ve got to get ourselves
Back to the garden…
(Woodstock-written by Joni Mitchell)

Last weekend, I took a bit of downtime, after the market, Friday deliveries, and Saturday morning pick ups, and spent a day watching old music documentaries. I watched one with Crosby, Stills, and Nash, and watched them perform this song. The song was written by Joni, and performed by her. Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young gave it a whole other harmonious journey, from which Mitchell sung it so lovely, and melodic. I was thinking how everyone can give different types of loveliness to the same thing, making the end product such a lovely combination.

The verse I used, today, always sticks in my head as planting, and growing begins, each spring. It was fun to talk with so many of our market vendors who are passionate about their growing, and telling me when things would be making their way to the market. Growth. Passion. Beautiful vendors telling me their beautiful progress.

Everything combined to make the market and it’s customers the stardust.

Looking into the coming weeks, the market will see microgreens, early radishes, mixed lettuces, and spring garlic!!! And, asparagus season will be rolling in with Beth and her asparagus!! We will see plant starts being offered, and so many other selections as we journey into the season.

Just a reminder that I have put all Cosmic Charlie, and Hippie and the Farmer products, on hold, for the next two weeks!!! I am taking a personal week, this coming week, but will be working at market pick up. I then leave early Friday morning for Florida, and will be gone that next week, returning on Thursday evening of the 22nd. I will continue to run the market, while on vacation, behind the scenes, and all of my products will go live, again, on the 24th!!

AND…last week’s Cosmic trivia questions winners were…

Ruth Ozimek
Dena Munday

With both of them answering, correctly, my birthday…April 27!!

Now, go, order, be the market stardust…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam
