MARKET REPORT – JUNE 6TH, 2017

Just a quick word to thank everyone so much for supporting an amazing year on our Agrofresco greens program for this 7 month season.  This operation is now our biggest vegetable vendor, and we’re planning on a few things to add to the program for next year.  One will be the final switchover to the “Ecocampos” labels for all products, and there will be other good news, to be announced in the future.

MARKET REPORT – APR. 12TH, 2017 – JUST A QUICK UPDATE HERE

On our Peru Relief Fund.  We’re hoping to send as much $ to Peru as possible on Thursday, so they have the money right after Easter.  If you have made a pledge, can you do your best to make that happen today or tomorrow morning please?   Thanks!

Very few changes after Friday’s market report.  With most veg production moving to the general Salinas area, growers would dearly love to have a spring!  Over the last 6 weeks the daytime highs have averaged 17C – with only 4 days over 25C.  They are, to the one, crying the blues, especially after a 3 day rain event ending last night – but not much rain in the forecast for the next week, nor any heat to speak of.

MARKET REPORT – JULY 15TH, 2016

Well there you go – up to date with mostly great news!

Here’s a few notes of interest this week.

Apricots are winding down quickly after a short selling window and lower yield over-all this year – we may squeak out another 2 weeks, but that’s all.

Bananas – all these damn inspections have left us with a gap on FT bananas looming for early next week with our next container expected to be released mid-week and ripened fruit by Friday.  We will have bananas and will be subbing with GROW bananas for those few days.

HOT SHOTS, MAR. 27TH, 2016

Dear Ones,

It’s Spring and Spring makes me think about Love.  Not love like ewey gooey romance love, but about Good Love, like seeds breaking open in the dirt Love, like lil baby animals rushing into the world Love, like the smell of sticky poplar buds riding the chilly but not cold morning breeze Love.  My friend Tess who stays with me for about one week a month and is like a sister to me came into my room this week where I was reading myself to sleep.  She said, “Are you sleeping.”
