What’s better than starting off a new decade with some decadent greens ‘n things picked January fresh from the tunnel? Ending the last decade with a healthy dose of family maybe!
We are back from our epic Boston -> Chicago -> Rockford, IL -> Columbus, OH -> Boston holiday trip. Other than arriving home 6 minutes before midnight on New Year’s Eve with 2 cranky kiddos, it was a wondeful visit. It had been 2 years since I’d seen my 96 year old grandfather, so it was a pleasure introducing him to Nora, the newest great grandGrady. Paddy Rose is named after his wife, who died less than a year before she was born – seeing the special bond they share made all the hassle of traveling more than worth it.
But it certainly is good to be back. Fortunately there were no epic snows while we were gone, so I’ve been able to pick right up where we left off – eating lots of fresh greens from the tunnel. The list is still pretty impressive, being January and all! I even added a few salad turnip bunches that were seeded last decade (10/11) that are finally sizing up. There are still delicious roots to be had, and the limits are off on all the greens. There will certainly be another pickup, but the end is nigh – order away. Oh, and there’s beef!
Veggie Ordering and Pickup Procedures: Put your veggie orders in online before 8pm Sunday. The website is a little buggy so if you don’t see a wide variety of items or you see items out of stock, try refreshing your browser. Also confirm on checkout that you have the correct number of each item in your cart. The two pickup windows are working well so far, so we’ll keep it going. Choose your pickup window while checking out online: 1-2pm and 4-5pm Monday on the farm at 64 Potter Hill Rd in Grafton. Pickups are in the long white garage on the left across from the beat up tan and red barn at the crest of the hill.
