CSA Week 9

Posted on July 26th, 2022 by Charlotte Grzegorowicz

Week 9!

I hope everyone that got pickling cucumbers last week put them to good use! I bought a half bushel myself and made 20+ jars of assorted pickles! It was a great way to spend the weekend, and they will make awesome gifts during the holiday season (if there are any left by then)! 

This week on the farm we are gearing up to start curing our garlic! A few weeks ago we offered green garlic in the shares, all the garlic that is left is being harvested, and laid out to basically dry. The curing process helps preserve garlic bulbs and allows the flavor to full develop. This means in a few weeks we will have beautiful cured garlic bulbs once again! 

Here are some helpful tips :)

  • If you find something missing from your share or forget to pick up your share REACH OUT TO US! If you don't pick up your share on your delivery day you will have 24 hours to contact me to arrange an alternative pick up. This could be a pick up at a different location, or we just send it again the next week with that weeks share! If you are missing an item from your box please contact me as well. I am more than happy to send a replacement item the next week, or give you a refund. 
  • Use a computer NOT a phone or tablet for customizing and avoid the Internet Explorer browser. The Harvie website sometimes has a few glitches when accessed on these devices. For the smoothest experience I heavily suggest accessing your Harvie account and customizing your share through a computer or laptop, with a browser like Chrome.  

  • To customize click the button in your email. You have 48 hours until the window closes to complete your customizations. You can swap things in and out of your box, OR add in extras beyond what you have already paid for! If you are having trouble customizing your order use this link for an in-depth explanation. 

  • If you received "credit" from one of our signup incentives, you will see it in your account as a positive "balance". This "Harvie Balance" should be visible on the customization screen and will be automatically used as soon as possible. This means, if you are on the payment plan, it will be applied to your share price the first week. If you paid in full, it will be applied the first time you add extra items to your share.
