Holiday Delivery Schedule Changes

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Well we have gotten a lot of comments and suggestions, and hopefully this will work for most of our subscribers; there’s a consensus that we certainly can’t deliver on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day. So we’re shifting gears for the two weeks and delivering on the Monday before— on both weeks. So that’s Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve for all boxes, both weeks. Normally Luey, our wonderfully calm driver, delivers half our boxes on Tuesday and half on Wednesday. For these two weeks only, Luey will do half the boxes, and one or two of us will do the other half. This is only a one day shift for Tuesday subscribers. But it’s a two day shift for Wednesday’s. Please let us know if anyone has a problem with picking up on these two Mondays, being Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, then back to normal the following week.

This seems to be the least disruptive of our subscribers schedules and also allows Luey and crew here a couple days off to enjoy their families and celebrate the holidays.

Cara Caras!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I just knew there was something missing off the Harvest Ticket yesterday, yup it’s the Cara Cara oranges. This is really the first harvest worth mentioning of our Caras. Originally found as a natural mutation in an orange grove in Valencia, Venezula in 1976, Cara Caras didn’t find themselves in US kitchens until the late 1980’s. Even then, there has always been somewhat of a mysteque about the Cara because their flavor is so unusual. Some have said the juice, although certainly “orange like,” also evokes cherry, rose petal, strawberry or blackberry hints as well. The flesh is certainly much redder than a navel, from whence this sport sprung. We have so few trees to harvest of this special variety, that we are sending them out straight from the tree, unsorted. Large, small, costmetically challenged….whatever; we want everyone to get a chance of tasting a few before the short windowed harvest is over!
