ALFN Local Food Club:  Bring on the Fire

Grilling weather is finally here to stay. Time to celebrate… with steak! We have prime cuts for every connoisseur. Throw some broccoli and bok choy next to that beef to create a satisfying meal without ever heating up the kitchen. Sound appealing? Give in to the temptation at the Market, but hurry. Only 16.5 hours left!

Dear Green Fork Farmers Market Customers,

This week Figgieville has a new crop of cold pressed olive oil and brined olives not cured with lye, directly from the grower in California.

There’s still time to plant these, as well as tomato plants and vegetable seeds that are available from our farmers this week.

Asparagus continues this week, but it has a very short season, so get it while you can.

We also have lots of other vegetables, plus microgreens, herbs, honey, beeswax, bee hives, eggs, lamb, chicken, pork, beef, popsicles, handcrafted herbal soap and other body care products, and locally roasted coffee—yum!

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm, week of May 12 2013 to order.

It’s 9 minutes after midnite Monday and I’m watching the thermometer outside hover over zero. Do I go out and spray the blossoming fruit trees to ward off frost damage and cover the freshly planted seedlings in the garden? You’ll have to come on thursday to find out .

We’re at the end of the spring harvest season and not quite in the summer, so selection is becoming limited. Sure do have chard, still sweet from winter cools. Some kale, beet tops, parsley too.

Will try offering garden veggie transplants this spring, so check the listing under transplants. Many are four plants per unit but tomatoes, eggplants, celeriac and parsley root are per each. A unit costs $4.

This weekend I am planting new berry bushes and trees on Saturday. Would you be interested in coming out to help? 10 to 4pm or part thereof. I’m putting in a new grove of gooseberries, red currants and chokeberries and adding some fruit trees to the orchard. Possibly a big patch of asparagus too.

Coming soon is the tear-down of the woodshed to make room for rebuilding it, complete with rootcellar for root, fruit and honey storage. This saturday I will welcome many hands to transfer the contents of the shed beside the barn to the empty greenhouse for temporary storage. It’s probably only a few hours for 5 to 10 people. The new building will become the store for all farm products as well as storage. I hope it will be completed by the Old 99 Strawberry solstice on Sunday June 23, potluck, all invited.

Healthy eating,
Ian, with daughters Kelly and Kendra
