Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm, Week of Feb 24 2013


It’s going to be mostly a crib this week from the worlds most favoured environmental website. About? Yes about you and what you think about Climate Chaos. How is that related to food you ask, and especially in Canada? (clues: tarsands, water, global supply chain)

But before I line in a few juicy quotes, the link for food this week is the same as last: www.old99farm.locallygrown.net. (Special on eggs is over but we still have eggs!)

“You’d think it would be pretty obvious that the public is not going to be concerned about an issue unless one explains why they should be concerned about an issue. And the social science literature, including the vast literature on advertising and marketing, could not be clearer that only repeated messages have any chance of sinking in and moving the needle,…”

“The two greatest myths about global warming communications are 1) constant repetition of doomsday messages has been a major, ongoing strategy and 2) that strategy doesn’t work and indeed is actually counterproductive!”

“The stunning increase in extreme weather events — 25 disasters exceeding a billion dollars in the past two years — which had long been predicted by climate scientists, has not gone unnoticed by the public”: (see graphs on website: a majority think carbon based climate change made the storms worse).

“If you want to find anything approximating even modest, blunt, science-based messaging built around the scientific literature, interviews with actual climate scientists and a clear statement that we can solve this problem — well, you’ve all found it, of course, but the only people who see it are those who go looking for it.”

“Of course, this blog is not even aimed at the general public. Probably 99% of Americans haven’t even seen one of my headlines and 99.7% haven’t read one of my climate science posts. And Climate Progress is probably the most widely read, quoted, reposted, liked and retweeted, climate science blog in the world.”

Where is that?

Tullahoma Locally Grown:  Market is Open!


Joyous Full Moon! Celebrate — for Spring is that much closer.

Biscuits and Gravy turned out fabulous. Plan on ordering some Breakfast Sausage next week, I’ll be sure to remind you then.

Incase you’re new or have forgotten:
Our market offers a variety or flowers, potted plants, breads, pork, eggs, sausage, steaks, vegetables, and soaps, and honey.

We also provide delivery service at a small charge, and offer gift certificates. Come to pick up and meet the farmers in your area!

This week Wayediller has Small Grained Heirloom Popcorn!

Stovetop Popcorn is quick and nutritious. Store bought popcorn is usually rancid and made with partially hydrogenated vegetable oils! For those of you (and my boyfriend) who don’t know how to make stovetop Popcorn:

Place 2T olive oil and 1/4 c popcorn in a heavy skillet. Cover tightly and cook over a medium flame, shaking constantly until popping starts. Lower heat slightly and cook until popping dies away. Transfer to a large bowl, and drizzle on melted butter and salt. Or omit the salt and add 1/2 cup maple syrup to the melted butter!
(I also enjoy parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast)

Market closes noon Wednesday, what’s in your fridge?
