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.

Old 99 FArm, week of Aug 20 2017

The list is getting longer and longer of vegetables, fruits and meats plus eggs available and grown here at O99. Yes we have enough peaches to offer this year: no chemical, tree ripened, Red Havens. $3/liter.

As of Aug 20th , we can offer the following crops: new harvest chard and kale, beet root and tops, purple potatoes, peaches, blackberries, aronia berries, tomatoes, cucumbers, zuchinni, beans (yellow, green and purple varieties) sorrel, New Zealand spinach, rhubarb, lovage, sweet cicely, arugula, basil, parsley, purslane, chives, cilantro, bulb onions and peppers.

Now is the season to help me plan for raising meat animals: chicken beef and pork. I need to know baseline quantities before committing to raising the animals. Chickens: $5/bird min 5 birds, beef $100/quarter, pork $50/half. Please put on your order so we can discuss when you come over.

Watch The Incredible Journey of Oil on youtube here. It’s got some remarkable footage of the ways oil has become indispensable to the modern lifestyle and military. Which of course is about to change as we become resolute in protecting the human habitat from fossil fuelled carbon pollution.
