List of available produce and online ordering at www.old99farm.locallygrown.net.
Consistently cool even slightly below freezing at night, but mild compared to norms. We’ve covered a few crops in the outdoor garden, like kale and spinach, carrots, to extend their season.
One new addition this week is claytonia, a mild salad green, aka Miners Lettuce. Good to add to salads or eat fresh with a vinaigrette.

Mid-Georgia: Heron Bay Farmers' Market
We are suspending the Heron Bay Farmers’ Market until sometime in January when we should be up and running with a new format as follows:
The market will be quite different from our usual. All orders MUST be made through our websitewww.midgeorgia.locallygrown.net
and MUST be completed by Thur 10 p.m.
We will deliver your order to Cannongate Parking lot each Saturday at 4 p.m. starting in January (actual date to be determined).
The delivery time will be limited to only 45 minutes, so please be prompt. We will not set up tents but most vendors will have some extras.
It is important to order through the website since this gives us time to put together your order and to make delivery efficient. All products that will be available for delivery will be updated and listed by Mon 10 p.m. when ordering can begin for the following Sat. delivery.
In order to place an order, you MUST open an account within the website. Once you have an account you will get a weekly update by email on what’s available and any modifications of location or times that might be needed. Please encourage your neighbors to sign up. We DO NOT sell, share of give out your personal information. The only one who knows or has access to “your” information is me (Bill), no other vendors.
Thanks for your patronage this past year, we look forward to the new format and more moisture which will help us grow more crops and be more consistent than we were able to be this past year.
We are grateful to Cannongate, Heron Bay, and Mikala Carver and her team at the Lodge for making this market available to you.
Have very Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas and Healthy New Year!

We got to try frying the Brussel Sprout tops this week. They are AWESOME!! (The sprouts themselves aren’t ready yet.) See the recipe below
Fried Brussels Sprout Tops Recipe
1 bag Brussels Sprouts Tops
4 -6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 -4 garlic cloves, minced
lemon juice, my addition, for garnish (optional)
salt, to taste
white pepper, to taste
Separate the Brussel Sprout Tops leaves from the growing tip. Chop the leaves to a size you are comfortable with, but not too small.
In sauce pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the brussel sprouts and fry, stirring occasionally, until very dark brown, almost charred, but NOT burnt.
The last minute of cooking, add the garlic and stir in to combine. Be careful not to burn the garlic!
Season to taste with salt, white pepper and lemon juice if using. Serve warm.
CAFE: Happy You're-Welcomes-Giving Day
Monday Update 11/26/12
HAPPY YOU’RE-WELCOMES-GIVING DAY!!
May the Monday following Thanksgiving Day be called You’re-Welcomes-Giving Day and be a day to acknowledge all the thanks we have received for everything we have done over the past year. Sound conceited? Not at all. It is just as reciprocal as the other day. We ask you as well to acknowledge all the thanks we have given you.
The thanks we gave last Thursday and celebrated by feasting, continues to still welcome us with left-overs in the refrigerator today.
Before your welcoming left-overs become “da nada” (nothing – all eaten), the reply to “Gracias” in Spanish, remember to begin stocking up for the next round of holiday celebrations. The CAFÉ Market is open until noon.
Eat well to stay well! Lance
