Welcome Toronto Members and Ancient Sumerian Gods of Irrigation

My sincerest apologies to all the people who have sent messages over the past few days. I’m excited to report that I was away from the computer because we were installing our in-ground programmable irrigation system over the weekend! No small thanks to our neighbours Courtney and Josh who know their way around an excavator.

When we have a chance to catch our breath, we’ll write a more detailed post about it and share it with you. In the meantime, I’m sure all of my Toronto Members are wondering what the plan is for pick-up on Thursday.

Based on the current weather forecast, it looks like there is a good chance of Thunderstorms, so for the first week at least I will pre-pack your shares so that you will be able to grab them quickly.

Because I don’t have a Market to attend in Toronto, I will have more flexibility about pick-up times. This week I will be ready for you at 2pm, if it is raining we will move to the front porch, if not, I will be in the backyard as usual.

In short the Toronto pick-up will be:
Thursday August 27th
328 Rusholme Rd (around back unless raining)
Between 2pm and 7pm (I will only be there ’till 5pm if you want to say hi in person!)

Note for anyone who lives closer to Dundas and Lansdowne: I have a second pick-up location option for you if you would prefer to pick-up later in the afternoon/evening, just send me a message and I can give you those details.

For my on-farm members I will see you on Tuesday as usual.
