Today we write about: dedication.
Big harvest for the restaurant this morning, even with the raspberries being almost finished - only 3 pints to be found out there. Thankfully the blackberries are just getting started; I managed to find one pint for them and there are plenty more on their way.
Busy day tomorrow with lots of things to get done before I leave on Friday for Kat's brother's wedding in Dawson Creek. Including getting some posts scheduled to keep you guys busy while I'm gone!
We don't have a huge number of local customers ordering every week, but it's been reasonably steady. And we're really just getting into the time of year where we have enough veggies available to support more people. But we do have a few people that are really dedicated to supporting us and enjoying our produce.
One couple, for example, just came back from being away for two weeks. Despite this, they're only missing one week with us - they picked up a small order the day before they left, and they're picking up this week's order tomorrow (usually we do pickup/delivery on Mondays but we made an exception for them this week).
It's really very rewarding to have customers like that. And it helps to make all this friggin' weeding feel like it's actually worth it...
