That is a great idea, Lance. Strangely, the organic delivery business has never 
made any effort to say hello or do networking - I am not sure what that means. 
And I get too busy to go chasing people down. But one day maybe someone will 
pull that obvious link together!

  Tying the drop off box into the already running 'coastal organics' business 
would be wiser than a bunch of people driving around to deliver their own 
boxes, no?  It would probably boost coastal organics sales a bit if they could 
offer something local in each box, I know that kale is actually a decent cash 
crop all winter plus its one of the best foods we have here.  Plus, the date 
and time of box packing is the same every week so people would know where and 
when with little difficulty.

    Hi, all - I am just working on logistics and issues for this spring's 
Microfarm Forum (Feb 24) and am looking at last year's "problems" to see how we 
have progressed. Our major issue seems to be pushing capacity up in small lot 
gardens to the point where there is enough to sell "off farm". 
    Next, we have two farmers markets on a single day, and nothing throughout 
the rest of the week. At the very least, it would be interesting to return to 
an idea where public could order stuff from farmers, farmers could drop off 
boxes at designated private addresses along the highway where they could be 
picked up. 
    The Abbott were also working on something where locals could drop excess 
off with them, and they would sell it. Any point is tossing any of this around?
