Comparing Full and Half Share Baskets

We are often asked whether a full or half share is right for a particular family. We have some general guidelines. Usually a single person or couple will be happy with a half share. Families of four or more prefer full shares. However, vegetarians and people who cook at home every day often opt for full shares even for a single person. Some families find a half share to be perfect. We found a few pictures that may help you to visualize the amounts in a half share versus a full. The top row is October baskets (two slightly different harvests–half on the left, full on the right). The bottom row is August baskets (again, half on the left, full on the right). We will work on taking more comparative photos, especially of the less bountiful Spring and Winter harvests.

Textile Sale 12/21!

Last week I went with Lyn Jacobs of La Finquita del Buho to give a class on making bird feeders to a group of Karen refugees from Myanmar. These women are a group that meets at Lutheran Community Services on 39th Ave. near Hawthorne weekly for conversation and community building. They are gardeners and craftswomen and weave beautiful textiles. They are holding a half price sale at the Lutheran Community Services building (605 SE Cesar Chavez Blvd.) on 12/21 from 10-1. Such an opportunity to buy great gifts and support these refugees at the same time!

Delivery cancelled 1/17/17

Thank you for all the supportive and kind messages we’ve gotten in the past few days.  Unfortunately, with no change in the snow cover on the gardens and freezing rain expected until 10 PM tonight we regret to say that we will not be able to deliver vegetables to you tomorrow as we had sincerely hoped to do.  Stay warm and safe.
