Week 11

Posted on August 9th, 2022 by Charlotte Grzegorowicz

Welcome to Week 11!

 

We're doing our best to deal with the hot, dry weather here at the farm! It's maddening to watch those huge, dark rain clouds roll in, only for them to just keep on going over the farm. If you remember, last year we had the exact opposite problem, too much rain and not enough sunshine. Maybe someday we will have a year of perfect weather (HA!). The heat and lack of rain has also done a number on our lettuce, and herbs! They just won't tolerate this weather, and it's really started to show this past week. Fortunately, the peppers are loving it! Especially the hot ones! This week we have two types of hot peppers, and a mix of sweet bell peppers.


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.


What do you have to choose from? I'll tell you!

Recipe of the week: Fajitas! 
This recipe calls for red, yellow, and green bell peppers but if you use the sweet mixed peppers we have this week they will still be delicious! You can even use the tropea onions, and spice them up with jalapenos! The creative possibilities are endless!! 

If you're stumped on what to do with those banana peppers, here's a recipe that I personally love! Next time I might try mixing in some sauteed leeks, or onions. Stuffed Banana Peppers!
