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 2019

Tomorrow Friday is market day here, so Ican pick your veggies and fruit fresh. The real meaning of fresh, not as in Tim’s Always Fresh etc. Not too late now to order, I"ll check in the morning.
We have basil, carrots, zukes, spinach, radicchio, onions, beets and tops, beans, kale, collards, potatoes and tomatoes, and eggplant and peppers. Pretty good eh! Aronia berries are the next fruit to harvest: you use them to make juice or syrup and then mix as cordials and cold remedy (high in antioxidants). Peaches will be ready next week I expect.
Also Compost still available.

Also meats: beef, lots of steaks and burger; pork, chops and roasts, and stewing hens.

Climate News
Next public talk for Extinction Rebellion is Aug 29th 7pm at Aberdeen Gardens,330 Dundurn St. South, just north of Aberdeen. Come get the facts, not to be shy about it, we’re in an emergency situation. “Headed for extinction, what to do about it”. I do the talk, we have discussion and sharing ways Hamilton can should respond.

Watch XR co-founder, Roger Hallam, organic farmer and PhD in social change give a lecture, Time to Act, Now! this month in Devon England.
