Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm,. week of July 26 2015


First, no fruit from Palatine because only had 7 boxes committed from y’all, and I need 10 minimum. Lets try again next week.

Tomatoes are ripening in the greenhouse, the plum variety and new spinach is available. Summer squash joins zucchini in the curcurbit family of offerings.

As of July 26th, we can offer 46 items including the following crops: zucchini, plum tomatoes, spinach, cilantro, basil, napa and early white cabbage, arugula (rocket), kale, three varieties of chard, cabbage leaves, collards, and beetgreens, peppers, eggplant, summer squash. There are lots of eggs but they’re selling as fast as I can make ’em.

Almost 700 000 viewers on youtube have wondered what environmental devastation actually looks like. Do you? At TEDxVictoria, photographer Garth Lenz shares shocking photos of the Alberta Tar Sands mining project — and the beautiful (and vital) ecosystems under threat.

ALFN Local Food Club:  Market Reminder


Good Morning,

The market will close tomorrow at noon. Please remember to make your order before 12:00 on Wednesday!

Introducing Volunteer Spot

I have been wanting to use a system where volunteers could sign up in advance to market days beyond the upcoming week. I’ve decided to try Volunteer Spot. The website provides a way for volunteers to sign up for shifts, and I have scheduled out market days from this week till the end of the year. I will still send out calls for help if I am short on Fridays, but I hope this will help some of those volunteers who like to plan in advance. Later today, I will email all volunteers who have signed up to my email list. However, you can also sign up by following the link here: Volunteer Spot. I will usually provide this link in all of my weblogs. Emails are only used to communicate within the group, and Volunteer Spot will not contact you directly. Let’s give this a try and see if it helps us.

As a reminder, remember this week’s market day is the first of August and marks the shift from monthly membership fees of $5.00 to $7.50. However, as stated previously, the annual fee of $60 will not change for those who decide to pay the one time annual fee. Volunteers may continue to receive a $5 credit to their account balance or a $7.50 credit to their monthly membership.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks

Yalaha, FL:  July 27-30, 2015 Ordering


New Product, Only available at limited times each year because we do not harvest fish weekly.
Channel Catfish.
Fresh Harvested, Whole NOT cleaned.
Average fish is 3 or 4 lb.
Smallest order is 1 3 lb fish. ($3 per lb so $9 minimum order.) You bring a cooler and ice to get it home.
Aquaponically raised.
These catfish are fed floating feed in tanks with water constantly cleaned and filtered by aquaponic systems. Our fish are not bottom feeders.
We harvest at pickup time. Fish are placed into water with CO2 to kill them as quick and painlessly (for both fish and people) as possible.
Then we pack into your cooler with ice you bring.
We are not able to clean or fillet fish for you because we do not have a commercial certified kitchen to process them in.
Must Pick up on Friday July 31, 2015 between 1 and 3 pm.

Martin's Farmstand:  Blackberries and beets


The wild blackberries are ripe!There are several girls wildcrafting blackberries for the stand. Most days we have fresh picked berries by noon. The sunflowers are beautiful this morning. They would look good on a table along with a well-cooked meal. The glads are sending lots of flower spikes up and will become abundant with in a few days. We have beans and beets by the 1/2 bushel for canning.
The cucumber vines grew extra slow during the abundant rain in June and now are growing nice and big. We have started picking a few outside cukes, not many yet as the vines where still small when these flowers set fruit. Next week we should have floods of pickles and cukes for canning.
I picked the first sweet corn today. I stopped after picking one bag as most of the patch is not quite ready yet. By Wednesday it should be abundant. Last year it was July 30 till corn was ready. Daniel
