Counting is an undervalued skill. It’s 50% (that’s 50 of 100) of my job I think. Counting bunches, counting boxes, counting bags, counting rubber bands, counting heads….that’s what I do around here. Count things. I do so much counting that I can’t help counting. I catch myself counting steps, counting bites, counting toothbrush strokes. Heh, heh, heh. (Now go back and read that in a Romanian accent)
Here's what we we're harvesting this week:
Baby lettuce salad mix: $3.50/5-oz compostable container
Arugula: $3.50/5-oz compostable container
Spinach (not baby): $5/1/2-lb bag
Rainbow Chard: $3/bunch
Lacinato kale (a.k.a. dino kale, black kale, cavelo nero, etc.): $3.50/bunch
Cucumbers: $2.95/pound (limited)
Tomatoes (Cherokee Purple or Beefsteak): $3.45/pound
We'll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market in Building C 8am-1pm and at the Downtown Hickory Farmers Market 330 Main Ave NW Wednesday 10am-2pm and Saturday 8am-1pm, and the Watauga County Farmers Market in Boone 8-noon.
Due to the high volume of emails, texts, and phone calls, facebook and Instagram messages, we are no longer able to accept orders through those avenues. I can no longer keep up in a timely manner and so I end up missing some. In order to facilitate better organization and flow on the farm so that fewer things fall through the cracks (and Shiloh maintains her sanity), we are asking that everyone wishing to place a pre-order go through our virtual farm stand: https://www.harvie.farm/farm-stand/tumbling-shoals-farm
Ordering for Saturday pick-ups happen from Sunday-Wednesday 7pm. Ordering for Wednesday pick-ups happen from the Thursday-Sunday 11am.
If you’ve never ordered through our system before, check out this tutorial (it’s not like a square store): http://tumblingshoalsfarm.com/how-virtual-farm-stand-works
Thanks for your understanding and assistance in making things flow more smoothly for everyone while we navigate this crazy new world.
