Rainbow OMG Weekly Post 25/05/22

Hundreds of Seedlings in our Greenhouse

Hello Rainbow OMGers,

What a glorious week of Autumn sunshine we have just experienced. As I type I see evidence of more rain approaching from the west, hopefully we will receive some good rain this afternoon.  

Just a quick reminder that we are suspending CSA Sales until after Winter. All current CSA subscriptions will be fulfilled over the next few weeks but we will not be offering any more until further notice. We would like to thank all CSA supporters for their purchases so far, a lot of quality vegetables were eaten by people rather than our chickens thanks to you.

We spent the last week looking after root crops. This means we turned over two older beds and direct seeded them with carrots, seeded onions in trays again for our last chance this year and used our home made wire-weeder in our existing Beetroot and Garlic beds. This is definitely weeding season right now and we utilise as many different methods as we can to make this task easier. All without dangerous chemicals of course 🙂 

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

We have now sold out of Gardenkraut however we will ferment a new batch as soon as we can.

Crops currently growing but not ready this week are Sugar Snap Peas, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Red Cabbage, Red Russian Kale and Spinach

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
