Miami County Locally Grown:  A new class offering! Learn to save seeds!


Ever wonder how to harvest your own seed?
Increase your self-sufficiency and get your hands dirty when you come visit
End of the Road Farm to help harvest lettuce seed at our
Seed Saving Basics class on Monday, June 26th! Space is limited, so register today!

Seed saving is near and dear to our hearts – we not only want to share with people one of our passions, but also show that seed saving is vitally necessary, absolutely doable, and oh so fun!

Appropriate for beginning seed savers, this class will include an introduction to seed saving, as well as why seed saving is critically important! See examples of our carrot, chard, peas, radishes, and spinach seed that is ready for harvest before we collect the lettuce!

In this class, conducted out of doors in one of the market gardens on our farm, you will:

1. See the various stages of growth and seed development of several veggies

2. Learn how to determine which plants you should save to harvest seed

3. Test your germination rate

4. Discover proper storage techniques

5. Take home resources and tips to aid your future seed saving endeavors, and much more!

Ages 14 and up are welcome – As we will be outside for the duration of this 90 minute class, please wear appropriate clothing and shoes for gardening, and feel free to bring water to stay hydrated!

Register on The Market under the Classes/Workshops category :-)

ALFN Local Food Club:  Market Reminder


Hey Everyone!

Don’t forget to place your orders on the market before noon, and to sign up to be a volunteer for this weekend.

Old99Farm Market:  OLd 99 FArm, week of June 21 2017


Writing this on Wed 21, the solstice. wow, already at the longest day of the year.

Thanks to the haying helpers, a big thanks, you know who you are!

Big request to you all to eat eggs and give them to friends and neighbours. I’ll help with a special offer: buy 3 dozen, get fourth free. That’s right, four for three. Devilled eggs, egg salads, quiches, etc.

Now is the season for meats from Old99, pork, beef, lamb all good for the bbq or oven.

Healthy eating,
Ian and Cami,

btw, see my facebook for great video on communicating climate change: Suzanne Moser. Intro says Safeguarding what we know, what we have, what is familiar and treasured in the face of climate change is and will be an increasingly difficult task. For many aspects of modern life, for human communities most at risk from climate change impacts and for countless species and ecosystems the task at hand is nothing short of heroic, and over time it may be “hospice work.” Those charged with protecting and helping natural and human communities and systems adapt are increasingly aware of this challenge (and need support in this task), as do those already well aware of the risks of climate change. Many others don’t know yet, and many don’t want to find out. How do we engage them? How do we communicate with them about climate risks and possible solutions, even if those solutions are imperfect? How do we sustain their engagement for the long haul? The presentation will offer insights into effective communication of climate change impacts and adaptation, with particular emphasis on the psychological dimensions that underlie people’s responses and that can help or hinder their constructive and sustained engagement in preparing for the future."

Champaign, OH:  Wake Up, Sleepy Heads!!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

The Cumming Harvest:  This Week at The Cumming Harvest


This Week

TODAY is the first official day of Summer! Looks like it’ll be a beautiful start to it too, weather-wise. The days won’t get too hot, and we’ll be getting plenty of rain. The summer veggies love this weather and even the leafy greens are able to keep on producing.

THANK A FARMER! Every week, as we greet farmers for their deliveries we are interested to hear their interesting farm stories. Mike’s Melody Garden tells us about the dear that love to visit his garden, he’s not too happy about them and is in a constant battle to encourage them away from laying in his corn stalks. Weedy Soil Farm has stories about her farm cat and how she loves to cuddle and how growing under a hoop house is going. These two are just examples of conversations we have and how easy it is for us to know how all these farmers we work with LOVE what they do! The work is hard and frustrating but it is very rewarding and we are able to benefit, THANKS TO THEM! Feel free to email the farmers to thank them for what they do for us and encourage them to continue. I know they would say THANK YOU to you as well because they couldn’t continue without your support.

Carrell Farms & Buffalo Gal will deliver July 8th. You can place orders for them and pre-pay each week. http://www.carrellfarms.com/

Indian Creek Angus will deliver on July 1st. You can place orders for them online, then pick up on July 1st. All orders will be prepaid either online or at pick up. http://www.indiancreekangus.com/
