Summer CSA time!

It is time to sign up for the Summer CSA.  We have tomatoes ripening already and there might be some in the first shares.  The first Summer CSA shares will be delivered next week (the week of June 17).  If you want to join, you need to have an account with us.  If you don’t have one already, you can sign up on our website at www.texasdailyharvest.com.

If you already have an account, just click the size share you want in the Shopping Cart and you are good to go.

The first week we expect to deliver: cabbage, kale, chard, green beans, potatoes and onions.  This will be something of a transitional time as the Spring crops are finishing up and the Summer ones are coming on.  Hot weather stuff should be up and running quickly as the temperatures rapidly climb.

Come join us for local, certified organic produce at Texas Daily Harvest.

Spring is in the air

We begin delivering Spring CSA shares this week.  If you have been thinking about signing up, you still have a chance.  There are still shares available, but to get the first week, you need to be signed up by 9am Wednesday.  Click the carrots for more information.

Have you visited the Texas Spice restaurant at the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas?  If not, you are missing out.  The chef there is a fanatic about local food.  They have been getting CSA shares and cheese from us since last year (and he never ceases reminding me how much he misses our milk and yogurt).  If you are in the area, make sure you stop by and check it out.   You won’t be disappointed.

The innovative farm-to-market concept incorporates using the freshest ingredients, such as locally produced vegetables from Texas Daily Harvest, to create great food and a casual dining experience. Texas Spice has a rustic interior designed with repurposed materials that include the red brick walls, garage door style doors and wood details.

Weston A. Price Foundation Conference / Farm To Consumer Legal Defense Fund Fundraiser

1 Comment

Whoa!  What a title.  That’s quite a mouthful, and the combined events will include MANY mouthfuls (of really good food, that is).  Anyone who appreciates real food needs to be there.  I have never had the opportunity to go until now, but from what I hear the food and the speakers at these events are incredible.

To make it even better, Texas Daily Harvest will be providing several products for the FTCLDF fundraiser meals, and possibly part of the WAPF conference meals.

When are these spectacular events?  November 11-13

Where are they happening?  Right here in Dallas!!  At the Sheraton Dallas.  It doesn’t get any closer than that.

Here is the link to the conference website: http://www.westonaprice.org/2011-conference/2011-conference

Here is the link to the FTCLDF Fundraiser going on in conjunction with the conference: http://www.ftcldf.org/2011-FundRAISER-Dallas.htm

This will be a great opportunity, everyone should look into going.  And guess who will be there?  Yours truly.  We are working on a barter to have a table in the marketplace to promote our products and our home delivery.  There will be lots of good stuff for sale and lots of things to learn about real food.  So come out and support real food, local food, and food freedom.

 

 

 

Transitions

Oh my goodness.  It has been a very long 6 days.  That is how long I have been working, non-stop, on the new computer system.  It has been a rather frustrating, stressful time, but I do believe I am on the downhill side of things.  That’s me over there with the glassy stare one gets from sitting in front of a computer screen too long (waaay too long).

I hope everyone likes the new ordering functions.  The new store gives customers many more choices.  I know, no one really likes change.  But getting rid of PayPal as the only payment option is definitely a good thing.  I believe I got everyone a little too well-trained to look for those confirmation emails, though.  Now that we don’t have or need them, everyone seems a bit lost.  “What do you mean all I do is place my order?!?!”

I think I’ve had more questions about not getting that confirmation email, and not having a place to “check out” than anything else.  Now you just enter a credit card number one time and then shop.  The store never truly closes, you can always edit future deliveries.  There is still a deadline for each delivery day, we have to package things up some time.

I still have back-end issues to iron out.  It is almost midnight and I am just finishing up with paperwork for tomorrow’s delivery, the first one we are making out of the new system.  I have a phone call scheduled with the owner of the software company first thing in the morning, so hopefully tomorrow will go better than today.

If you haven’t looked at it yet, please log in and check out the new store.  It will allow you to set up recurring orders that you can change any time.  That way you can always know your basic order is placed, whether you remember to order or not.  This seems to be especially important when Monday is a holiday and everyone’s routine gets disrupted.

And, please, bear with me as we go through this transition.  I think we will all be happy with what we have when we get to the other side.

On a definitely happy note, we did get about an inch of rain night before last.  Definitely doesn’t fix the drought situation, but it sure was nice and it is a good start.

Grasshopper Convention

 

These guys have pretty much taken over.  They helped do the garden in (along with the heat and squash bugs.)  They are absolutely everywhere.  I have been trying to get a picture of them on a fence post, they will line up like this, covering one side of a metal t-post.  I just have not had the camera with me when I’ve seen them and had time to stop.

 

Sunset at the Farm

Even as bad as the weather has been, and as dry as everything is, this place is still beautiful, and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.  This was the view from our front yard one evening last week.  We just don’t want to talk about how many of those trees have been killed by the drought and will not be standing after the first good wind comes along.

Daddy's Boots

Sky put these on herself, and actually walked part way across the living room before she fell down.  Stinker : )
