Homegrown Co-op: Online Market open for Sat. pickup or delivery!
Champaign, OH: Give local...
As we head into the last few hours of the market this week I wanted to offer up a reminder to consider our wonderful vendors when selecting gifts for your loved ones for the holidays. From local maple syrup, honey or garlic, to baked goods like homemade noodles, spices, herbs, and breads, we have many items that family or friends would be happy to receive. Many items are shelf-stable and could be wrapped and placed under the tree or in a stocking too. While we can’t possibly name them all, please remember that local dollars spent on local items stays mostly local! And if it cannot be placed under the tree, start a new tradition of gifting it into their refridgerater or freezer! Blame it on the elves and deposit that roast or sausage right into their freezer! What a surprise it would be! Taking a road trip? Order extra cookies or a loaf of Cosmic bread for the ride! The options are endless!
Let’s work hard to make your cyber Monday really virtual Tuesday and support your local food providers!

Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op: One more market before Christmas!
Just a reminder that the Co-op market will close tomorrow night, and that there is only one more market before Christmas. Our vendors offer lots of goodies that would make great gifts and stocking stuffers, and buying from them keeps your holiday dollars local.
On another note, be sure that if you need to contact someone regarding volunteering, that should go to our awesome volunteer coordinator Karen Harbut, not Karen Holcomb. Karen Harbut’s email is email@example.com.
Enjoy the holiday season, and thanks for your support of Spa City Co-op.
ALFN Local Food Club: Market Closes Tomorrow!

Plattsburgh Online Ordering: The season shifts
The last few years we have been able to harvest from the field right up to Thanksgiving. Then winter gets serious, and we rely on what is in our hoophouses. The hardy greens – arugula, kale, asian greens, can be harvested if they are not frozen. Since the hoophouses warm up nicely with a little sunshine, we usually have a day a week all winter that we can harvest them.
We took down the Route 9 hoophouse over Thanksgiving and re-assembled it over salad greens growing up by the old hoophouse, but we don’t have the plastic and end walls on yet. The forecast is not for open air thawing, so I don’t know if we will have arugula and salad mix this week. I do have spinach in the old hoophouse, and a good supply of kale and chard available for greens.I think I’ll have a good supply of the lettuces.
I am hoping for a 40s and sunny day because there is a lot of good salad mix and arugula still where the Route 9 hoophouse was and where I had a bed protected by row cover (which I took up before the row cover froze to the ground).
At least I am getting the garage cleaned out, organizing my market supplies, etc. But it is amazing the difference sunshine makes. Monday morning was just miserable nasty brrrrrrr, but as soon as the sun came out it was pleasant outside, or in the garage with the door open. We moved the pallet of cover crop seed out to the feed trailer (which is not as full of feed this time of year), took wax off some bee frames and stored them away, etc. More sorting and organizing to do before we bring the golf cart inside for winter (blocking access to shelves to sort), and Sunday afternoon I dug a lot more carrots which need to have the tops snapped off and be washed. It seems a little pointless – I am sure I have more carrots harvested than we will sell, but … And I did get more of the nice white and red carrots that we were short of.
Have a great week.
