Yalaha, FL:  Weblog Entry


Order now through 5 pm September 6th for September 8th Pickup, (or contact me if you want a different day, we do have some flexibility.)

I have started the Fall Planting. Kale Seeds etc started so if all goes well, perhaps, we will have leafy greens available come October. Sorry, though I’m still trying to grow lettuce I doubt there will be any surplus of lettuce for sale till October. If you let me know you want it, I might be able to make up some orders of Mixed salad stuff (would be leftover lettuce mixed with excess sunflower shoots, perhaps the very tips of pea shoots and other microgreens and even some edible Florida weeds that we have been eating as our own salads over the summer.

Dog days of summer are here, Only a small few assorted things available. Summer in Florida means only limited things grow well and most farms take summer as a down time for cleaning, re-building, and taking a vacation. We are no different.

Remember to tell me when you want to pick up!

Send me a message if you are interested in Getting Channel Catfish.

If you have any particular requests, let me know I’m happy to grow to order.

Market News

Happy Labor Day, everyone! I’ve known many hard working laborers in my day, but probably none that work harder than our farmers. Please send a few extra thanks their way next time you’re able.

I’ll be out of state this week, attending the XOXO conference in Portland, Oregon. XOXO is an experimental festival for independent artists and creators who work on the internet, and I’ve been wanting g to go for ages. I’m able to attend in large part because I wrote all the software behind Athens Locally Grown, software that’s now in use by markets all across the country. Some of my creative inspirations will be there, people I’ve only known across the internet, and I’m really looking forward to the whole thing. I’ll be leaving pickups on Thursday in the capable hands of our regular volunteers. If you have questions they can’t answer or problems they can’t solve, just drop me an email and I’ll get right back to you.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!

Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest for September 2nd




Market News

Hello!

Happy hot September to you, and happy Labor Day weekend as well.

We’ve got everything this week! Summer tomatoes and melons, peppers and okra, lots of greens, and winter squashes! Try something new this week – a new variety of winter squash, or an Asian Green, and take the time to roast some peppers to freeze for winter!

The watermelons are small this week, but are really sweet, so you may want more than one!

Flowers are back – it’s a fresh crop of zinnias which will cheer up any table. So treat yourself this week and enjoy all the good things we farmers, meat producers, and small business owners have to offer!

You have until Tuesday night to place your order!

Thanks for your support, and we will see you on Wednesday!
