ALFN Local Food Club: Market Closes Tomorrow!
The market closes tomorrow! Get your order in! There’s a fable about the boy who forgot to order before the market closed, but I can’t remember it. Just let it be known, he met a grim fate!
Plattsburgh Online Ordering: The season shifts
The last few years we have been able to harvest from the field right up to Thanksgiving. Then winter gets serious, and we rely on what is in our hoophouses. The hardy greens – arugula, kale, asian greens, can be harvested if they are not frozen. Since the hoophouses warm up nicely with a little sunshine, we usually have a day a week all winter that we can harvest them.
We took down the Route 9 hoophouse over Thanksgiving and re-assembled it over salad greens growing up by the old hoophouse, but we don’t have the plastic and end walls on yet. The forecast is not for open air thawing, so I don’t know if we will have arugula and salad mix this week. I do have spinach in the old hoophouse, and a good supply of kale and chard available for greens.I think I’ll have a good supply of the lettuces.
I am hoping for a 40s and sunny day because there is a lot of good salad mix and arugula still where the Route 9 hoophouse was and where I had a bed protected by row cover (which I took up before the row cover froze to the ground).
At least I am getting the garage cleaned out, organizing my market supplies, etc. But it is amazing the difference sunshine makes. Monday morning was just miserable nasty brrrrrrr, but as soon as the sun came out it was pleasant outside, or in the garage with the door open. We moved the pallet of cover crop seed out to the feed trailer (which is not as full of feed this time of year), took wax off some bee frames and stored them away, etc. More sorting and organizing to do before we bring the golf cart inside for winter (blocking access to shelves to sort), and Sunday afternoon I dug a lot more carrots which need to have the tops snapped off and be washed. It seems a little pointless – I am sure I have more carrots harvested than we will sell, but … And I did get more of the nice white and red carrots that we were short of.
Have a great week.

Old99Farm Market: Old 99 Farm Week of Nov 25 2012
List of available produce and online ordering at www.old99farm.locallygrown.net.
Consistently cool even slightly below freezing at night, but mild compared to norms. We’ve covered a few crops in the outdoor garden, like kale and spinach, carrots, to extend their season.
One new addition this week is claytonia, a mild salad green, aka Miners Lettuce. Good to add to salads or eat fresh with a vinaigrette.
Nicole Foss talk this friday is generating a lot of interest, I am optimistic we will fill the room (about 50 capacity) at the Lions Community Centre.

Mid-Georgia: Heron Bay Farmers' Market
We are suspending the Heron Bay Farmers’ Market until sometime in January when we should be up and running with a new format as follows:
The market will be quite different from our usual. All orders MUST be made through our websitewww.midgeorgia.locallygrown.net
and MUST be completed by Thur 10 p.m.
We will deliver your order to Cannongate Parking lot each Saturday at 4 p.m. starting in January (actual date to be determined).
The delivery time will be limited to only 45 minutes, so please be prompt. We will not set up tents but most vendors will have some extras.
It is important to order through the website since this gives us time to put together your order and to make delivery efficient. All products that will be available for delivery will be updated and listed by Mon 10 p.m. when ordering can begin for the following Sat. delivery.
In order to place an order, you MUST open an account within the website. Once you have an account you will get a weekly update by email on what’s available and any modifications of location or times that might be needed. Please encourage your neighbors to sign up. We DO NOT sell, share of give out your personal information. The only one who knows or has access to “your” information is me (Bill), no other vendors.
Thanks for your patronage this past year, we look forward to the new format and more moisture which will help us grow more crops and be more consistent than we were able to be this past year.
We are grateful to Cannongate, Heron Bay, and Mikala Carver and her team at the Lodge for making this market available to you.
Have very Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas and Healthy New Year!
