Cool Report on the Cooler

THE COOLER IS WORKING! The part we ordered Tuesday–after the part that came Monday did not fix the problem–the Tuesday-delivered-Thursday part fixed it. Rick Mead, with The Tractor Guys, came today and recharged the refrigerant, so it is now ready for the fruit that will be picked up tomorrow at Boja Farms and Costco.

Wow! We are gearing up for Pick UP’s next week–Tuesday starts A-C and Thermopolis Members. Check the PICK UP INFO page for more information. Remember to bring your own bags and money for EGGS and PORKI have 10 dozen eggs and 50#’s of natural pork to be purchased individually. (Eggs $2.75 or $2.50 if you bring your own carton–Pork $4-$7.50 per pound, depending on the cut.)

If you were on the installment plan, your last payment is due–

Things are looking good in the garden and we anticipate a generous share of Gourmet Salad Mix, Eggplant, Zucchini (and extras to take), Kale and some Swiss chard, and a few Antohi peppers. I also will have a surprise herb. Grape tomatoes are green but looking good–soon to come….hmmmmmm…YUM!

And, real quick, let me tell you about the Cauliflower. We tried a new variety this year that proved disastrous–it did not handle the heat and the heads went UGLY!! Yesterday when we were assessing the damage and pulling plants, easily half, we found our favorite variety from last year was A-OK and we even found 8 heads that were white, round, and beautiful. We don’t have enough for everyone, as sometime happens, but when we get 20 we will surprise one of Pick UP groups with a Cauliflower. I keep records so that by the end of the season everyone will get their share!

SEE YOU SOON! The Farmer’s Wife

    HI Terri, is my pick up time on Thursday from 4:40 to 6:30? Thanks, Rebecca Luhm

  2. Ready this season for sure–fourth planting survived the heat and flea beetles. Now have both pole beans and bush green beans. Green beans will be for canning!
