ALFN Local Food Club: The Market Is Open!
What a deluge! The sun is starting to shine and the market is open with cheery products. Welcome the sun to evaporate your pooled, stagnant thoughts and mildewed emotions; drive away overcast action!
This 1,000 year rain event that hit parts of Louisiana remind us not only over the relentless forces that drive our planet, but also remind us of the new normal as our climate begins to shift into new patterns. Certain ecological theories dealing with stability and chaos view our climate systems like a marble in a bowl. There are always fluctuations, but the system eventually balances itself. A marble gets pushed up the wall of the bowl, but when the pushing forces stops, the marble falls back into the settled state at the bottom of the bowl. However, the driving forces of greenhouse gases loading the atmosphere continue to push the marble up the wall of the bowl. Eventually, the marble will fall out of the system (bowl) and find a new normal. Imagine there is an unknown bowl outside the current bowl that lives are stabilized within. As the climate is pushed into extreme temperatures, it becomes less likely for it to fall back into the stable system we experience on an annual basis. Eventually, we will crest the limits of normal and fall into a new stable system…one we have never experienced as a civilization. Many scientists argue we have already crested the ridge and now the earth will be driven into a new normal over the next millennia. Human economies and cultures will change with the change of climate. It is our task to begin building the foundation for a humanity that lives with the world, not against it.
In the end, we shouldn’t be driven to depression because of the floods and rains, but learn to live with the floods and rains. Maybe I need to re-watch Water World for insight:)
Have a great week!

Tullahoma Locally Grown: Great News from Your Tullahoma Locally Grown Market
Your Tullahoma Locally Grown Market is now open. Feel free to browse and select your items between now and Wednesday at noon.
From Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:
The forecast for next week’s weather may be a bit optimistic, but it indicates somewhat lower temperatures. It’s time to start thinking about fall gardening. For the last couple of years, I’ve made an effort to acquire some perennial plants that bloom in August and September. Everywhere you look, you will soon see chrysanthemums. Let’s do something different this year! Currently blooming at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse are:
- Anemone (tall and showy in white or pink)
- Plumbago (very pretty blue)
- Toad Lily
- Pincushion Flower
- Hardy Begonia (lovely pink!)
- Several colors of Carnation
We have several types of ferns, as well as furry soft Lamb’s Ear, that will all look very nice alongside these bloomers. And in the very near future we will have in stock Flowering Cabbages. Fall gardens do not have to be all about Chrysanthemums!

Conway, AR: Opening Bell: Apples, Shiitake, Peaches, Chicken!
After a week that delivered over 7 inches of rain to most of central Arkansas, we should be in for a few dry days. Getting rain is normally a welcome event for our Growers, but so much rain at once can drown vegetable plants or cause fruit to burst! Take a look around the site and you will find plenty of delicious options for meals this week. It’s a great time of year to eat local, and freeze some for winter.
Don’t forget to check out the recipe page on Conway Locally Grown!
Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

Come early on Friday for the best selection from the EXTRAS table. And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)
