Rainbow OMG Weekly Post 3/8/22

37 Years, Forevan Young
Happy Birthday Evan!

On this day August 3rd, 1985 a quiet young baby boy was born in Wangaratta, Victoria. 37 years, 6 trips to Europe, 2 to the USA and countless laps around Australia later, that baby is now a Husband, Father, Friend and clean food provider for his community in the small town of Rainbow.

While this may paint the idealistic picture, life goes up and down in stages and cycles. Evan has had lifelong and ongoing struggles crippling Anxiety and Depression, being victimised by bullies (easy target) and many serious health concerns, culminating in self-healing from dozens of widespread Cancer tumours in 2020-2021. 

Needless to say Evan is grateful every morning he wakes up to enjoy another day Gardening and raising his Family. Gardening and growing plants is Evan’s gift to the world, closely followed by music and eventually his children.

The perfect birthday gift for this quiet man is a full order book for this Friday’s deliveries. We would love to see a host of new customers alongside our faithful regulars. Playing bass with The Go Set a few weeks ago was another birthday gift which Evan really cherished.  

See you on Friday.

Notes from the Garden

We have been busy tidying up in the Greenhouse, which is currently full of Butterhead Lettuce in anticipation of planting our first Summer crops of 2022-23. We are growing a lot more tomatoes this year and have received our mix of heirloom seeds in the mail. We can now save and replant our tomatoes each year, developing what is known as a “landrace” meaning the seeds are adapted to our climate, soils and gardens specifically. A landrace is typically a very strong plant and we look forward sharing ours with grandchildren many decades in the future.

We are in the middle of a Leaf week in the Lunar Calendar. In the Nursery we seeded trays of Spinach, Bok Choi, Lettuce, Kale, Rainbow Chard and are Transplanting beds of Spinach, Kale, Lettuce and Rainbow Chard in the production beds. We also pruned our Tagasaste hedges and planted a hedge of them for our neighbour. 

As we have harvested almost half a bed of Beetroots we are offering Blemmy Beetroots @ $10/kg. “Blemmy’s” are our range of vegetables that are not quite the right shape or size but still taste delicious.

Our latest batch of Gardenkraut is also ready and available.

The latest Sunshine Salve is ready! Our new jars are 2.5 x the size of our previous jars so we have raised the price but increased the value for money. There are less than 20 available this time around as we are reserving quite a bit for our growing family. The larger jars will last a very long time, likely more than a year for most people.

We have new packaging for our Herbal Supplements. Our new jars contain a 3 month supply of 100 capsules compared to 50 and offer better value for money. 

We have changed over from Beef Liver Capsules to Beef Organ Capsules. These contain Beef Liver, Heart and Kidneys blended together and provide an even more beneficial nutritional profile than just Liver alone.

A reminder that some of our range is limited so please get your orders in quickly to secure your desired organic vegetables.

This week the Garden is providing Spinach (Limited), Broccoli (Limited) Red Russian Kale (limited) Sugar Snap Peas(Limited), Capsicums, Lettuce, Bok Choi, Carrots, Blemmy Beetroots, Coriander (Limited) and Parsley.

Crops currently growing but not ready this week are Celery and Red Cabbage.

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 “evan@rainbowomg.com” 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

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 not notice it is in the 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.
