Rainbow OMG Weekly Post 18/05/22

Hello Rainbow OMGers,

Another week of cool and overcast weather has passed and plant growth in the Market Garden is slowing down with the shorter days. We can and always will grow right through Winter, we do however observe much slower growth in all plants this time of year. This week we planted flowers, more Sugar Snap Peas as well as lot of weeding both by hand and with the flame weeder.  

In light of the change of Seasons we are suspending CSA Sales until after Winter. All current CSA susbscribtions will be honoured until completion but we will not be offering any more until further notice.

Interestingly, we read an email this week from Woolworths stating that due to the floods in QLD and NSW the national Lettuce supply is looking very bleak for the next few months. We believe the current state of the economy may result in ongoing food shortages for the foreseeable future. There are many converging factors contributing to this outcome, we can assist you in these challenging times.

As a local grower of vegetables we are not affected by any of these problems and will have a continuous supply right through Winter. i.e. we are providing food security for our region and will continue to do so as long as we can make a good, honest living. In light of this we are looking for Rainbow OMG supporters from other towns in the region to help us set up local Buyers Hubs to increase our distribution area. More on this below

This week the Garden is providing Green Capsicums, Lettuce, Bok Choi, Beetroots, Zucchini, Basil, Rainbow Chard, Cucumbers and Parsley.

We have 1 X 400g Gardenkraut still available and we will ferment a new batch as soon as our very busy schedule allows.

Crops currently growing but not ready this week are Cherry Tomatoes, Carrots, Coriander and Sugar Snap Peas.

Rainbow OMG Buyers Hubs  

Jeparit, Warracknabeal, Hopetoun, Beulah, Nhill, Dimboola etc


Are you interested in our delicious vegetables but live just that little bit too far away to be worth the drive to Rainbow just to pick up one order? 

We are looking for Rainbow OMG supporters from other towns in the region who are interested in working with us to increase the distribution of our organic vegetables and healthy lifestyle products. Buyers Hub organisers will be rewarded for their efforts.

If you would like a Rainbow OMG Buyers Hub in your town, please email “[email protected]” with your name and town and we will be in contact ASAP to kick start the process.

Some of our products may be a little different to what customers are used to so we will be providing Product Profiles in our Weekly Post and in a dedicated page on our website. This will provide recipe ideas and nutritional information for all of the vegetables and products we offer.

Product Focus: Bovine Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is vital to many aspects of our health. Unfortunately the modern lifestyle is full of foods, pollutants, radiation and behaviours that deplete collagen levels in the body leading to early ageing and the onset of degeneration.

Bovine Collagen, also known as Beef Collagen or Hydrolyzed Collagen dissolves completely in hot and cold water, is tasteless, easily absorbed and provides the following health benefits:

  • Assists in treating Osteoarthritis
  • Improves Gut Health and Digestion
  • Builds Muscles and Repairs Tissue
  • Promotes Deeper Sleep
  • Improves Skin, Hair and Fingernail quality

Here are some ideas to incorporate Bovine Collagen into your healthy lifestyle:

  • Our favourite method is to add a small teaspoon of collagen to every cup of tea or coffee we consume throughout the day. You will barely notice it in your drink.
  • Can be added to a protein shake or smoothie
  • Add to your favourite soup (even stirring into each bowl when serving) to boost the nutrition of your meal.

We are offering Bovine Collagen in 70g Jars for $10
