This page contains news, event information, and other items added by myself, the intrepid farmer-in-process at Old 99. I send out a message every week, but most are set with a delete date about two weeks later. I archive some of the posts if they have content other than weekly availability of produce and meat.
You can send me questions too, which if they are of a general nature, I can post to this Old99 blog.
Old 99 Farm, week of May 1st 2017
I heard from several regulars that the reminder helps. So I’ll have something in your inbox early in the week. Every week.
The green vegetables are lush and ready to harvest, I hope you realize how unique this is to have locally grown greens, organic, from a farmer you know! We have new harvest kale, sorrel, rhubarb, chard, cabbage, mixed greens, arugula, claytonia, leek, lovage, parsley, cilantro, sweet cicely, chives. From storage: potatoes (pink, dakota and purple), garlic, onions. Will have transplants for sale: tomatoes, and more. Our tomatoes went in the ground this week, plants are in bloom.
The three pigs are about market weight now, one is sold but I am taking deposits for halves or wholes, $100 would do. Will have beef in a month. Remember I have goose and turkey on at half price now. Pork and lamb are still in good supply.
We’re going to get drenched later this week with 2 to 3 inches of rain, according to forecast. All this water makes it very likely farmers will not be able to get on their fields for some weeks yet.
