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 Oct 21, 2018

This week we have:
- kale, collards, carrots, cabbage
- beef: ground, stew and roasts
- chicken: roasting and stewing hens on special two for one
- tomatoes, parsley, arugula
- potatoes, onions, garlic
- celeriac
- apple cider pressed here, frozen
- blackberry cuttings, rooted

For your garden we have mature (2018) composted cow manure, amended with basalt rock flour, gypsum and fungal inoculants. Get it on your garden now so it can work all winter under the snow(hoping we have some).

Your climate primers, because you’ve decided you want to be an informed citizen and resourceful parent for your kids.
