It’s time to shake it up around here. I woke up the other morning with a revelation! What? I was thinking that we start many seedlings for the growing season indoors at the end of January and bring all those seedlings outdoors in April. Then we start more seedlings in April, May, June and continually until about now. Why, oh why, are we selling our wonderful non-GMO, “cide” free, organically-grown food to you only one day a week? With full-time help now, there’s no reason we can’t deliver most products to you every day we work which is Tuesday through Saturday. I need some time to take care of the house, grocery shop (not that I need many groceries) order new supplies and do a bit of catching up on fallen-behinds. As you’ll see on the Local Line site, I need at least twenty-four hours’ notice for your order. That way I can pick fresh for you. The only thing that wouldn’t be available daily is Salad Greens as they are a full-day process once a week needing all hands on deck. We never know how many bags we’ll have at the end of the day. Sometimes we get twice what we need. Other times we have exactly the amount we need for those of you who pre-ordered. Weather is a big factor in how fast and well things grow, as you know. You’ll see if they are available when you check the catelogue. It changes every day, sometimes more than once each day.
With the new Local Line ordering system you should be able to enjoy our foods when you like and order when convenient for you. Some of your towns are not recognized by Google Maps. In that case, you can put Ontario as your address. Select what you want to order and your delivery day. It’s best to keep payments as they are right now: cash, cheque or e-transfer. We can set up more options when we get rolling.
Day Brighteners Farm Online Store. I’ve put a lot of effort into pictures (more to come as we make more food) and descriptions of each item for you. I’m always open for suggestions to better the system for all of us. There’s also a YouTube video Local Line prepared for us at https://youtu.be/AzrhTNY_
1GA to make it simple – I need it to be simple.
I do have to tell you though that the tomatoes and cucumbers are coming in fast and furious now, onions are superb, kale just keeps growing and growing, garlic is ready and everything else is growing as it should. We’ll be adding fresh salsa to the list in a few days. I have a summer cold right now and don’t really like to handle food while I’m all sniffly and sore throaty but will be wonderful again in a day or so.
