|Hamper of our organic romas 2016.|
We are now taking orders for our certified organic roma tomatoes! The crop looks nice this year. We grew them on plastic mulch with drip irrigation and with this dry weather diseases such as blight are staying away. Insect pressure is not that bad either. Ben anticipates a good harvest and a good month or more of availability. But, of course, thats never guaranteed. It's farming after all ;)
Price is $1.20 per lb. Which is $30 for a half bushel which is 25 lbs. A full bushel is 50 lbs, sold as 2 25 lb cases for $60. This slight increase in price will help pay for irrigation costs this season.
We will bring these half bushel cases to DUFFERIN GROVE market each Thursday. And to EVERGREEN BRICKWORKS market each Saturday beginning NEXT WEEK, August 18th. We anticipate to keep shipping the cases into the first week of September and most likely longer. But if you are a serious sauce maker - do it sooner than later!
You may order by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org and indicating the amount of cases you need and market and date you wish to pick up at. Make sure to include a phone number to call or text, especially if you need alot. Or go to market and simply write your name down on our list!
****Bear with me as I do have many small kids, so I may not get to respond to all emails. We will do our best to make sure you get your tomatoes!
***Also, LOOK at your cases of tomatoes at market. If you buy them, they are yours. I cannot give you a refund if after a week you no longer like the quality. They are very nice this year, but are organic and not perfect!
