Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm, week of Jan 9 2022


We had the coldest night of the year so far, -16C and clear sky. Greenhouses did quite well thanks to the Underground Heating and Cooling system (UHCS for short). Inside temp was -2C at ground level. Crops can survive that especially when the soil is not frozen, soil temp was about 5C in the root zone.

So we have crops for you again this week, fresh harvested and from the cold cellar.
We have available celery, mixed greens (aka mesclun), spinach, chard, mustards, collards and a selection of fresh herbs. Root vegetables include carrots, garlic, leeks, fennel, potatoes, turnip, rutabaga, squash varieties, and beets. Of course the freezers are full of beef, pork and chicken, and the hens lay eggs every day
You can find us on the Weston A Price Foundation website too.

Here’s a picture of me putting the UHCS

The pipes are two layers deep going the full length of the house, giving 5 air changes an hour.

Healthy Eating!

Lathemtown Farm Fresh Market:  This Week at the Market


This cold weather has taken a toll on the greens. Many leaves have not survived the icy nights even under frost cloth. I’m giving them a week or two to come back before picking. I have added arugula as that bed has enough for a picking.

I appreciate all the container returns! If I ever forget to give you credit on your order, do not hesitate to let me know you’ve returned a bag and I will add it to your account. I prefer dozen sized egg cartons, any size canning jars and rings/ lids, Tupperware type containers, foil tins, any grocery sacks including the wine type (good for soups!). I do not need any more odd shaped bottles or jars right now or the 18-24 egg cartons.

Thank you! Stay warm and dream of warm weather to come!

GFM :  Never Forgotten


It has been a very stressful year for all of us with sickness or having family members ill or in the hospital.  We at GFM want to wish the best for you and your family in this new year.

It has been a very difficult year for us personally at the market.


In December,we lost one of our own.    Anne Vale of Cedar Ridge Farm passed away due to complications.  She was a personal friend, who was also in every since of the word, my sister. She will be greatly missed. A long time vendor of the market, and a board member. She and Husband Paul have been supportive of this market since coming on board as vendors.   Please continue to keep her husband Paul in your prayers as he really misses his life partner and wife Anne.

Gone but will never be forgotten.

Champaign, OH:  I Can See Clearly Now


I can see clearly now, the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-shiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-shiny day

I think I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I’ve been prayin’ for
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-shiny day

Look all around, there’s nothin’ but blue skies
Look straight ahead, nothin’ but blue skies

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-shiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-shiny day

It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-shiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-shiny day…
(Johnny Nash version)

Happy Monday, lovely market customers!

I had a busy weekend with catering, so I am getting back to sending out this lovely little market weblog to all of you!

This song…you know, I had a whole other direction I was going with, today. I was going to use The Long and Winding Road, to talk about the direction, twists and turns of the past 11 years, with this market’s humble beginnngs, and circle it around to also the past two years of being a long and winding road, bringing it around to how the market has played such a big part, in these last two years…

But, it just sounded more down, than up, and then I started humming a song that I have been humming since Thursday evening.

This song ended an episode of a series that I watch, and when it played, along with that last scene, I felt my mind lift, my body twirl around, and my mood instantly going into the grooviness of the vibe.

So, today, I’ve had the song turned up, while working, and I thought to myself, what a perfect song to sum up how I feel about this market, about you, and about how each week, I strive to deliver that bright sunshiney feeling to you, via your market orders.

Also, I would like to make an observation…after trying to place a pick up order for essentials, and not being able to get a spot until Thursday, and then after masking, gloving, and shielding up to make the trek to run into the big box store, to get my essentials, notice bare shelves, sticker shock on some items, and staff that was mostly tired, understaffed, and sort of not with it, probably due to the fatigue and understaffing, I got back into my car, rubbed myself in sanitizer, and headed home, thinking how this market, once again, is proving to be that bright spot…

We have product, we bring it to your car, our prices have all stayed about the same, and you get it all with a smile, a chat, a wave, and a laugh…

Also, it’s National Pizza Week, and we offer all that you need, to make it National Pizza Week, at your own house, via our market vendors and their amazing products!

It’s gonna be a bright, sun-shiny week! Put on those rose colored glasses, and sing this song, and dance, and clap…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam
