This note originally went out as an e-mail on 6-13-12 to shareholders.
First, the Wednesday pick up is *next* Wednesday not today, so sorry about any confusion! We wanted to give plenty of heads up time on that. And thanks so much to those of you who replied! Next week's
pick-up will be same place same time, but Wednesday not Thursday. If
that's a problem, let me know ASAP.
It's been beyond belief here. Our land line phone went out Thursday.
It never came back so apparently is having a wonderful time wherever
it is. AT&T has been less than prompt in addressing the issue and I
have given them the boot. So if you call our 812 number you'll get a
disconnect notice. We are in the process of getting new cell phones
with an 812 area code but in the meantime you can contact us on my 937 cell number. I almost always have my phone on me.
Add to that, this morning I sat down at the computer to work on a blog with this week's list, etc, and, well how about that, no internet.
Apparently there was some wide spread problem with Hughes.net (our
provider) because I just kept getting a busy signal and then the
connection just popped back in. I'll try to get a more complete blog
up (*try* being the operative word).
In case you missed them, last week I added a page in the kitchen section of the website on food preservation that contains some information about washing your produce (to get rid of any stowaway creepy crawlies and left over dirt) as well as an awesome recipe for homemade Veggie Wash (way cheaper than the store stuff). Also, on the recipe pages I added a page for "things to do with fruit" that consists, at the moment, of Glenn's favorite Crazy Crust Cobbler recipe. Some of you may enjoy trying that out this week (see list!)
Anyway, here's this week's list with a couple lovely additions!
blackberries! (You'll get enough for the cobbler recipe mentioned above)
sweet corn! (you'll get enough for a nice taste and, having had some
for supper last night, it's a taste worth waiting for, we think)
lettuce (Simpson and butter-crunch)
spinach (It was supposed to be standard spinach but it's already bolting so it was New Zealand.)
And a selection of greens that includes: kale, mustard, Swiss chard,
and collard greenss.
If you're a greens lover and/or want more to put up for next winter
(an excellent idea, by the way, and amazingly simple), let me know and we'll bring you more. I originally mentioned that if you're not a greens lover we could just not bring you greens, but I was having one of those moments when my brain shuts down. It is really too hard to keep track of special requests (I don't want any peas or please switch more kale for the okra or whatever) so we don't generally do that. We may offer to bring extra of something or we may just show up with extra. It has to be picked regardless! (Most of the extra summer squash was taken and the extra cucumbers disappeared so fast I felt a breeze!)
I have gotten all the photos of what you've received thus far on the "what is it page". Maggie got home from 4H camp yesterday afternoon and slept for 3 and a half hours during which time I worked on updating photos because I knew when she woke up, it would be hours on end of 4H projects. Only a week to go before the fair!
See you tomorrow
