The Farmer informed me this morning that the cooler is dead. He has spent most of the day trying to track down the little tiny plug that will bring it to life…but, alas…none to be found here in Worland. He has taken it apart and is trying to solder it to where it will work temporarily until we can get a new part out of Denver, but with hot weather in the forecast and the potential of a full cooler of fresh fruit for the Fruit Shares, we have decided to postpone the harvest until the next week starting with July 23rd to Friday the 26th. Pick UP Day will start July 23rd, barring any further surprises–We apologize for the delay!

There is kale, kohlrabi, and zucchini in the garden that will not wait a week–we’ll get those items to Bee Healthy where they can be purchased at a reduced price. We also have some fresh Gourmet Salad mix that we can’t hold–that will be cut, cleaned, cartoned, and delivered to Bee Healthy during the week.

Those that ordered Meat–it will be here Monday morning. You can either pick it up Tuesday the 16th, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., or I can hold it in the freezer until you pick up your veggie share the next week. I ordered some extras–they will be priced and for sale with the Veggie pick up’s after July 23rd.

I have 12 dozen eggs that can also be purchased on Tuesday the 16th. Price is $2.50 to $3.00 depending on size–LG/MD or Small. We will have a small fee for the egg carton, which can be returned for a discount on the next week’s dozen.

Well…that about states the facts for now. Out to the garden to access the veggies…finish tying up the tomatoes and planting more corn, melons, squash, and the failed bok choi and kohlrabi and beets.

Patience is a virtue…farming requires patience…does that make us virtuous? I hope so!

  1. I will have 8-10 dozen next week during Pick UP–they are $2.75, but if you bring your own carton, they are $2.50. Will be looking for another supplier as I think based on the response we will need more! YAY–people eating fresh and local–HOW MUCH BETTER CAN IT GET?…maybe local and fresh for 6 months out of a year?? hmmm….Bee Healthy is also supplying fresh farm eggs. And they have some that are locally grown and organic.

    Do you still have any eggs? What if we bring our own carton? 💜 Cathy Groshart
