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 Nov 5, 2017

All the same good choices this week for vegetables and meats. I’ll have a whole beef in the freezer, half of which is already sold but will be lots of choice.
The Liberty apples are stored in the rootcellar, but won’t likely last as well this year due to the warm weather. We have carrots, beets and lettuce, to add to the squash, tomatoes (including Beefsteak), garlic, cilantro, parsley, watermelon, chives, Russet potatoes, onions, kale, spinach and arugula. Please
order your roasting chickens for December.

We had an overall successful set of speaking engagements with Guy McPherson and Abrupt Climate Change. Total attendance at 4 events was about 300. Most of the talks and interviews are available on youtube.

I’m continuing my interest in promoting and teaching people about permaculture and how to apply its design framework to one’s whole life. All the more relevant for us all in the face of uncertainty about stable climate, food production, and habitat for all species. If interested, you can contact me, to find out how to participate.
