Having the boxes ready for Sunday pickup worked well for us last week. We’re hoping that it worked for you as we continue it this week and for the remaining weeks.
One of the major challenges that we are dealing with this summer (besides the weather, weeds, and limited growing area) is labour – actually or our inability to support very much of it. At this time we are unable to grow enough to support the staffing compliment we need. So to deal with this, we are trying to become more efficient. One area that sucks quite a bit of our time is harvesting. By pairing our box harvest with the market harvest we basically eliminate a an extra harvest period and now can apply that saved time to other important tasks.
This week’s offerings feature tomatoes (they’re here!) and the first of our summer potatoes – the Lindzer an early-maturing, waxy potato most popular for boiling or making salads.
