Wow, I didn’t think I could get any busier – what a week…my head is spinning. The good news is that help may be on the way! I’m meeting with 3 potential employees over 4 days – that’s more applicants than I had for the full year position at the start of the season. To say I’m excited is an understatement!
Different structure to this email because I have to go move the cows before they move themselves (again)! Look for them on the right on the way up the hill. They seem to enjoy the pasture down there so this time I just put up the fence around them instead of trying to get them back up. Plus I didn’t have any Korean takeout food to lure them back up! My neighbor showed me a hilarious clip from his security camera of them prancing through his backyard.
- Potter Hill honey has finally arrived! The first harvest was wildflower honey – the beekeeper can tell by color and taste. It’s REALLY good and is up on the website for $10 a jar
- Meaty Monday! Jeff from Short Creek and formerly of Potter Hill will be coming down Monday with meat. Here’s a link to his website. Availability is found on his price list. Email him directly to order at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- OMG you guys. I keep saying this but the lettuce is getting better and better. This week will be the first pick from our newest planting. I sampled some the other night just to make sure it was as good as it looks. I think it’s actually better!
- Some new and returning items are up on the website. This is the best time of the year to be a veggie, and the next few weeks are looking to be even better. Tomatoes and cucumbers are still cranking (somehow despite the cool weather), the greens are taking off, and fall veggies are just starting to come in. I’m holding off on the butternut this week to let them sweeten up but maybe next week.
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 we’ll keep it going. Choose your pickup window while checking out online: 1230-2pm 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.
