Share Division for the September 24th Deliveries

What is with Microsoft anyway??  I was having all kinds of issues with Window 7 Pro and kept getting an email for a “Free” upgrade to Windows 10 with Internet Edge…so, why not?  Not working anyway…what can I lose?  Other than the 4 hours it took to down-load the upgrade…and the inability to use the computer during that time?

Well…a learning curve thrust upon me at a time when I don’t have time to learn new things!  I was going to cut and paste a document into this blog, but they have changed the rules….

SO: I will send an email to each point person at the drop points–so please check your email.  It will tell how to divide your tub between the different members with different share sizes.  Remember:  the label on the tub tells you who has a Fruit Share and who gets lettuce. (Fruit-apple and plums; Lettuce- Romaine)

I’ll learn how to cut and paste another day…like maybe January 14th, 2016!

Milk, Yogurt, Watermelons, Tomatoes, Fruit Share, & Lettuce option

We have been sampling the Kalispell Kreamery whole milk for the past month–Hand’s down it’s good!  I ordered a couple of extra gallons this week for anyone interested in trying it–Cost is $5.25 for a gallon.  What makes this milk different?  It is not homogenized and the cream is not removed but left in the milk.  It is not raw milk but lightly pasteurized to meet the health regulations. 

I also have ordered more of the Kalispell Kreamery whole yogurt–two flavors:  plain and honey sweetened.  Since the milk is whole it retains the natural sweetness from the cream.  Plain yogurt is tasty and can easily be added to fresh fruit.  Cost is $5.25 for a quart.

We also have the last of the Watermelons for sale from 4:30 to 6:00 at The Farm.  If you ordered ahead your Tomatoes will be ready!  Once we harvest tomatoes, extra’s may be available to buy.  Zeb will be handling all sales in the shelter between our two coolers. Farm Fresh Eggs, TOO!

Fruit Share will be Honeycrisp apples from Utah, and Italian prunes (plums) from Montana.  The rest of the Fruit Share was ordered from Spokane Produce, but they had a mishap on the inter-state this morning and cancelled deliveries.  Those additional items will be included in next week’s Fruit Share.

Lettuce Option is a nice, crisp head of Romaine lettuce from Gallitin Valley Organics in Bozeman, MT.

See you tomorrow!–morning for the deliveries and late afternoon for the Pick Up’s!  Don’t forget to set time aside to get your Share…or send a friend in your absence.  We are not setting up Shares in our cooler for Pick Up later…we already work a 12-14 hour day…would like to close up shop and get a bite to eat by 7:00 p.m.
