Champaign, OH:  Carry On


The fortunes of fables are able
To see the dawn
Now witness the quickness with which
We get along
To sing the blues you’ve got to live the tunes and
Carry on…
(Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young)

Good morning my very much missed little market of love customers! Welcome to Saturday, and welcome back from our little weather induced vacay of last week!

But, here are…ready to Carry On…(see where I am going with today’s sound implant)

You all have been flooding the market with your orders, and you still have until Tuesday morning, at 8am, to do your weekly shopping!!

I know that you have many options, these days of how and where you get your food, and many ways to acquire locally sourced items, so it makes me so happy to see this market still going so very strong!! You make my heart so very happy, moving to our May 10 Year Market Anniversary celebration…

I also picked a tune, today, from CSN&Y, because this album, Deja Vu, was one of my very first albums. Also, somedays just call for a whole lot of grooviness by CSN&Y, and….this album was spinning, in the background, when the first seeds were planted in my Cosmic Charlie history.

Many, many, and so many years ago, one of my best friends lived out in the country. She and a long time guy friend of my mine had found happiness, together, and one balmy summer night, I was out at their place, and I took a loaf of bread that I had baked, for dinner. After much wine had been consumed, and much excitement over my freshly baked bread, we all started a big plan of taking my breads, and a product that they were working on, from their gardens, on the road, to area farmers markets. I was SO revved up about this idea!! The plans were elaborate!!

But, like most hazy nights of wine planning, the next morning when I excitedly called them to see if they were in with our plans, they laughed and said…Hell, no…we were just drunk. Argh…lol. But, I decided, well, if they didn’t want to, why not take myself to the markets, and sell my bread? And, so I did. And, I was popular, and growth was quick. And, everyday, since then, going into my 12th season, I’ve never quit. Each year has brought new adventures, and new paths, and new experiences that have now allowed me to bake with exclusivity.

Since my very first farmers market, my path has seen me in various restaurants, coffee shops, retail locations, my own retail shops, a bakery, this market, and now in my umbrella of branded businesses.

But, it was all made possible from that one wine infused night, with ideas, and one loaf of what would become one of my most popular Cosmic breads.

So, a new Cosmic trivia question for the week….Which of my breads was that very first bread that sparked a million adventures??

One winner, this week, and the winners from last week, combined with this week, will get your winning products, Thursday!!

As always…you must be an ordering customer!!

Have a great Saturday!! The snow has stopped, and we are to see warmer days, this coming week!!

Carry on…
XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Martin's Farmstand:  Weblog Entry


The farm stand is open this afternoon from 12:30 pm till 5 pm. There are still lots of carrots, potatoes, squash, beets, cabbage, celeriac and more. The bulk food room is also stocked.
Even though it is still very wintery outside the tomato plants are growing nicely in our living room under a light. There are about 75,000 onion seeds here that we plan to plant next week. The resulting onion seedlings will be grown in the greenhouse for about 10 weeks and then set out into the field in late April. Most years we still have very cold weather after we start the greenhouse but not for long. By mid March it is common to see quite a few above freezing days. Spring will come and we are ready to start the cycle of seedtime and harvest again. With Gods rain and Gods sunshine we have hope for an abundant harvest and food for another year. Daniel
