Champaign, OH:  Ain't No Sunshine


Ain’t no sunshine when she gone
It’s not warm when she’s away
Ain’t no sunshine when she gone
She’s always gone too long
Anytime she goes away…
(Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone-listening to the Lenny Kravitz version)

But, seriously…the market closes at 8am, this morning, and there truly is no sunshine if all of our merry band of followers are not all with us, on the ordering adventure…

And, just a note on the bread front for my own, Cosmic Charlie…if you need bread, order it for this week. I will be putting myself on vacation mode, for next week, as I take my annual leave to drift off to the first music festival of the season…

Now…give me some sunshine, get your orders in…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

The Cumming Harvest:  This week on The Cumming Harvest


This Week

Market opens at 10AM
Market opens at 10AM

The WHITE OAK PASTURES monthly order is coming to a close. Please email thecummingharvest@gmail.com with your order of pastured chicken, pork, sausage and other meats no later than MONDAY, MAY 21.

The Cumming Harvest would like to welcome its newest grower, Fill Ministries. Many of you are familiar with the organization Meals By Grace. This organization works with local schools and churches in Forsyth and Dawson counties to identify food-insecure families who have young children, and provides them with food on a weekly basis. Last year, Meals By Grace provided local families with over 60,000 meals, a fact that boggles my mind and hurts my heart.

Steven Daniels, the man in charge of the Meals By Grace operation, recognized that these families, just as much if not more than others, need and deserve fresh, organic food. Rather than attempt to source produce on a weekly basis, he decided to start a farm and grow it for them. But it needed to be a farm that could incorporate a multitude of volunteers, mostly community members with no farming skills and possibly limited physical ability, and it needed to produce a LOT of vegetables.

With this in mind, Steven created Fill Ministries, an aquaponics farm in north Forsyth County that grows lettuce, spinach and tomatoes. (Aquaponics is a system that employs growing plants and fish in an environment where each benefits the other.) In addition to the aquaponics greenhouse, Fill Ministries Aquaponics Farm is also in the process of establishing a Certified Organic garden where they will grow summer vegetables and a variety of berries. The majority of the food grown goes directly to the families that his ministry serves.

The Cumming Harvest, its farmers and customers, have an amazing opportunity to support this organization that provides struggling local families with organically-grown food. Fill Ministries recently approached The Cumming Harvest regarding becoming a vendor, and over spring break, Suzanne and I toured the farm. As of this month, the greenhouse is in full production and extra lettuce not used by Meals By Grace will be sold to the public via The Cumming Harvest. All proceeds from sales go back to Fill Ministries. I hope that you are as delighted as I am to welcome this new grower to the Cumming Harvest community.

Kombucha is on the market. Check out the NEW FLAVORS by Ancient Awakenings.

Stock up on your favorite essential oils from Southern Essentials. They are back this week after a few weeks away.

Have you tried Carrell Farms Alpaca or Water Buffalo yet? What are you waiting for?

Strawberries and peaches this week, yum!

More summer squash on the market, as well as cauliflower, Napa cabbage, mushrooms, sugar snap peas, arugula, lettuces, and more!

THE MARKET WILL BE CLOSED ON MAY 26 FOR MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND; STOCK UP ON ANY ITEMS YOU CAN’T DO WITHOUT!
