Definition of insanity
First pepper July 20 instead of July 1 (planted the same time as last year, but 20 days later)
I was always told that the “definition of insanity” was doing the same thing but expecting different results. Whoever coined that phrase never farmed I think. Because in my experience the opposite is true. Take potatoes, for example. Last year everything went so perfectly and we had a fantastic potato year. So naturally, we did exactly the same thing as last year but definitely did not get the same results. This year was a terrible potato year. Sigh, it’s enough to make me feel insane.
Here's what we we're harvesting this week:
Green Beans (stringless): $3.50/pound
Shishito peppers: $3/pint
White cucumbers (Hickory only): $2.95/pound
Tomatoes (Cherokee Purple or Beefsteak, small but tasty): $3.45/pound
Zephyr Squash: $2.25/lb
New Potatoes: $5.95/bag
Mallory's Mixed flower bouquets: $11.95
Basil: $2/1/8 oz bag
We'll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market in Building A 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 midnight. 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
