The scoop on the new gray plastic totes:

When you pick up your veggie box, please check it for a white sticker label (either on the sides/ends and/or top). If it has a white sticker label with someone’s name on it, then it has add-ons and is a special order for someone else. Be sure to take a veggie box without a white label if you are picking up a veggie box without add-ons. Please return the tote to your drop site the following week or bring an empty bag to transfer the items into the same day that you pick up. Thank you for returning the totes to your drop site for re-use!

Field Notes: Two 4+ inch rainstorms caused a lot of flooding along the county roads during the past 2 weeks. Asparagus is on the horizon! We hope to begin the asparagus harvest in one week.
