ALFN Local Food Club:  Save All The Dates!


Spring seems to be the busiest season in Arkansas. So many events occur in that short window of weather that’s no longer too cold and not yet too hot. If you’re looking for ways to enjoy the season, here’s a sampling of what Little Rock has in store:
This Thursday at the Empty Bowls Art Auction and Dinner you can take home local artisan creations and support the great folks at Arkansas Foodbank. Sunday, April 28th you can dine on kosher creations at the Jewish Food and Culture Festival. Then, if all that charity and matzo leaves you with a hankering for bacon, get your fill at the Heritage Hog Roast on May 4th.

Doesn’t all this talk of delicious food sure make you want to take another pass at the Market before it closes?

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm, week of Apr 21st 2013


I can watch the spinach growing I swear, this last week. Should have a bit of rhubarb soon too, as I put some plants in the greenhouse.

Daughter Kelly convinced me to list on HElpx.com for willing workers who travel, work in return for lodging. so you can find me at that site, see how we talk about ourselves.

Still no word on the Niagara Escarment Commission approval to rebuild my woodshed; it’s been 12 weeks! Last news, they were waiting for Min Natural Resources to comment. why you might ask? To assess whether there are barnswallows that are nesting and will be disturbed. But the official who receives the files was on bereavement leave for 3 weeks and didn’t tell NEC and now he’s back the barn swallow guy is on paternity leave. So what does a guy like me do!

Veggies: spinach, chard, kale, cilantro, mixed greens, stir fry, claytonia and beet tops. Also have some gal pots of comfrey which I started from rootstock. $4 a pot, great addition to your organic gardens for growing your own plant nutrient and mulch (chop and drop). Read up on comfrey on the web. This is symphytum offinales, the non-spreading variety. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comfrey
