The Cumming Harvest:  Wellness Wednesday – Healthy Salad Ideas


WHAT ARE THE HEALTHIEST INGREDIENTS FOR A SALAD?

The following ingredients are some of the healthiest ones you can include in a salad. I’m all for moderation though, so don’t be too hard on yourself if you want to add in some cheese or croutons — I won’t tell!

• Red or green leaf lettuce
• Carrots
• Yellow peppers
• Spinach
• Broccoli
• Beans and legumes
• Olive oil
• Balsamic vinegar
• Sunflower seeds
• Flax seeds
• Tomatoes
• Almonds
• Cauliflower
• Garlic
• Brussels sprouts
• Kale
• Green peas
• Swiss chard
• Avocado oil
• Walnut oil
• Collard greens

We have a wide variety of lettuce and mixed greens available for that perfect healthy salad. Check out FM Aquaponic Farm and our other growers to get started!

Our address is: 3540 Keith Bridge Road, Cumming 30041 (behind Hollywood Feed). Please be sure to come to the new address this weekend.

As a reminder the market is open from Wednesday morning through Thursday at 8pm for orders. All orders must be picked up on Saturday from 10am until 12pm noon. Please be respectful of our volunteers’ time and plan to pick up early and not right before noon.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Grumpy Goat:  Weblog Entry


As you’ll see we’ve started taking some veggies off the online market. The garden is slowing down rapidly right now so it’s getting harder to figure out how much to list. We will still have tomatoes/peppers/eggplants in the store – we just can’t guarantee quantities before hand!

I’ve also had to remove the Asiago and Tomato Asiago bagels off until I can source blocks of Asiago again (sadly Kroger has stopped selling the blocks). If anyone has a source let me know!

We had a great time at the Handmade Harvest event in Minster last week. Thanks to those of you who came out to visit!!!

This week we continue to bottle the fall honey this week as well as starting to clean the wax to use in lip balms in the future. We are also continuing to shear the goats. Speaking of the goats, we just got word that Frankie Mittens was declared the Reserve Grand Champion in a fleece show in Oregon (we mailed in her fiber after her haircut)! Woohooo. We have high hopes for her in the future. We also continue to can, dehydrate, and freeze as much as possible before the garden stops producing. And now all the fall prep and cover cropping must begin… can’t believe it’s September already.

Miami County Locally Grown:  A Family Affair


It was cracking me up as I was getting ready for Market this morning how much of a family effort it is for us, for me to get out the door with everything I need.

Our three oldest were helping highlight the fridge and freezer items on your invoices (“No, canned chicken doesn’t go in the fridge! Oops Mom!” “No Ice Cream today? Well that’s less for you to forget, Mommy!” Thanks, guys) while toddler Anna pulled the papers out of the printer and handed them to me, generally waiting until they were all the way printed. Four year old Molly was mostly intent on breakfast after she learned there were no plants sold for her to water, while Daddy has it hardest, keeping us ALL on track while watching the clock :-)

We’ll call it Market Math that Anna’d say, “One paper Mommy, Two papers Mommy” correctly – and who can blame her on a large order week that after patiently waiting for most to print, she found her own fun putting away the tray to catch the papers as they printed, watching them float to the floor, then when I held out my hand for the next one, impishly looking at me, saying, “No more papers, Mommy”!

If I didn’t have such good (maybe fun is more accurate) help it’d be much harder to be on time (although in the same breath it makes it hard to leave the house, too!) – and it makes me smile all over again when I get your items ready for pickup and see the names of the folks we talked about that morning. “Well, that’s a new name!” “How do you say Ndzgorski?” “Hey, Leonore is back!” “Tell Joseph Leffler Joseph said HI!” “How is Vivian doing?”

Whether you know it or not, you’ve made a big impact on our family, and I’m grateful. Whether it’s enjoying the logistics of making lists and counting money, understanding the basics of relationship marketing at age 6, or simply enjoying knowing they’re being helpful to nice people who appreciate what they’re doing, running the Market is a fun part of our family life, and it wouldn’t be possible if you didn’t believe in and support local food.

So from Lee, Jennifer, Lucy, Joseph, Mary, Molly and little Anna Ruff, THANK YOU.

Champaign, OH:  Last Call


Good morning, lovely market customers!

I’m coming to you from crazy wedding week central as the countdown continues to Saturday!!

Thank you, all of you, for being so patient, and still continuing with ordering!

It was a crazy wedding season of a summer leading into the wedding of weddings, this Saturday.

I will be so happy to return to you for all of your baking, and soup making, and market greeting days of order pick up!

Until then…let’s give a big shout out to your other market manager, and my father, who have been holding down the fort on Thursdays!!

You have about 15 minutes to get your orders in for the week!! And, I do see that eggs are nowhere to be found, so I will check with all of the egg vendors for the market’s reopening on Thursday evening!! I do know that many of my chicken owning friends are having the same issues…those chickens are just on strike, at the moment…

Ok…tossing out all the love to you, all the gratitude, and I look forward to returning to the market, full time!!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam
