The Weblog

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.

My friend and climate guide, Albert Bates, writes in his recent blog post about having to take time out to recover from his ‘addiction to climate porn’. He goes into the wilds, visits far away places, does practical service somewhere. But his sources named are not what deserve the put-down of pornography, the names he lists: Joe Romm, Nick Breeze, Peter Sinclair, Paul Beckwith, James Hoggan, are the credible sources for best uptodate information not politicized. Real climate porn I would call such as the youtube series Climate and Extreme Weather News, which shows clips from camcorders, newslreels and graphics of the extreme weather in recent days. This clip is for July 20 to 24.

Healthy eating,
