Champaign, OH: Ramble On
Leaves are falling all around
It’s time I was on my way
Thanks to you, I’m much obliged
For such a pleasant stay
But now it’s time for me to go
The autumn moon lights my way
And I smell the rain and with it, came
And it’s headed my way
Oh, sometimes I grow so tired
But I know I’ve got one thing I got to do
Ramble on and now’s the time, the time is now…
Listening to a little Led Zeppelin, this morning, thinking about this market, this point in the summer season, and how gradual changes are coming on like the position of the sun, the length of the shadows, the shades of the trees, the way the wind blows, the slight duskiness of the garden rows…all beautiful, but all reminders that we are in late summer. That bittersweet time before the days of fall come to meet us, taking us off on the colorful season that offers us so much in a different growing season, but sad to see the browning of the strawberry leaves, and the crispness that is taking over the lush green of early June…
But, we continue to ramble on, sing our song, and thankful for all that our gardens, fields, producers all have to offer us, and this market.
It’s Sunday, feels like a sort of lazy start to the day, and what better way to get into the swing of the week, than to get your orders in?
Mine’s a tale that can’t be told
My freedom I hold dear
How years ago in days of old
When magic filled the air…

Enjoy the Market this week, many great things to choose from all our Growers.
News From Our Growers:
RnR Farm: back this week with delicious lettuce choices.
Oakview Farm: Fresh whole chicken for sale- the price is reduced from last week so get them while you can! We also have pie pumpkins (great for roasting, grilling or soups), green beans, winter squash and lemon balm available. We don’t use pesticides/chemicals in our garden and our chickens are given a fresh patch of grass everyday with no hormones or antibiotics!
The Sugared Spoon: This week I’ve got Chocolate Cherry Brownies! Cherries folded right into the batter and finished with a white chocolate drizzle. Also, if anyone wants an assorted dozen cookies, just order it as a dozen of chocolate chip and leave me a message to make it assorted. Assorted dozens will come with Choc chip, peanut butter, Snickerdoodle, oatmeal raisin and butterscotch-toffee.
Rainbow Hill Farm: New Apple this week is Ozark Gold, has Golden Delicious in its breeding and is flavorful and more tart, also have the Gala Apples available this week along with Summer Squash, Zucchini, Sweet Peppers and Tomatoes.
Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): We have two healthy peanut butter alternatives – Sunflower Seed Butter and Pumpkin Seed Butter. Check out our Cardamon Honey and lightly heated Habanero Honey offerings.
Short Mountain Cultures: Highlight this week is GINGER BEET KVASS I never would have thought so many folks in Woodbury would love this Ukrainian sour beverage so much! Beet kvass is definitely what’s up when it’s so dang hot. The electrolytes from the salt are a life saver, not to mention the vitamins and minerals from the beets. And to top it all off the wild yeast fermentation created a slightly sour profile that makes my mouth water.
Flying S Farms: Yukon Gold Potato are available this week in half pound or pound options.
From our Meat Producers: Farrar Farms, Sow’s Ear Piggery, Caney Fork Farms, Crossing Creeks Farm, Oakview Farm and Quarter Spring Farm all have some great selections of meats to make your meals great. From Beef, Pork, Lamb and Chicken. Grill, roast, broil, boil…delicious anyway you prepare them.

The market is open for ordering this morning, as usual. Please remember to check for new items in all the categories. I haven’t been able to check for new items, and now I won’t be doing so. You see, I don’t see. My dog tripped me in the driveway and my glasses went flying and were badly bent. My son gave them some first aid, but they need to see the eyeglass doctor. Till then, I’m not using my eyes any more than I really have to, because I’ve already managed to acquire a good headache. So please check for new products and let me know if you find any!
Thank you, and see you Thursday or Friday at your choice of pickup location.
Please bless your managers (who donate their time) and farmers, and forward this message to at least one friend who might be interested in encouraging local small business!
