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!

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.

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? Robin --------------------------------- Yahoo!

Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it. Woodrow Wilson "Don?t expect the sky to look the way you remembered it any time soon. The government has forfeited the skies and militarized them on your behalf, with your permission, and with your money. They are up there every day putting their weapons and poisons in place and experimenting freely, in plain sight, with the gusto of kids on Christmas day. And we, the public, has given them our blessings through our non-action due to ignorance and indifference. Here?s is a fraction of what is going on in the air right now."...Carol Pellatt --------------------------------- Looking for the perfect gift? Give the gift of Flickr!
