1. You might not be familiar with everything in your share.
We probably will have things in your share that you have not eaten before.  Try it, you might like it. If you don’t like it one way, try cooking it another way.  If you still don’t like it, that’s ok.  Find a friend who likes kale or find another member to trade veggies. Or just don’t take it.
2. Your share will be different sizes from week to week.
The growing season and Mother Nature do not keep an exact schedule.  Some springs come early and some winters stay late. Either way, the amount of veggies you get in your basket will even out.
3. Your share waits for no one.
Please do not forget to pick up your share.  We cannot save shares that have not been picked up.  If you do need to reschedule your pick up, we will be happy to help if you let us know before Wednesday. Please do not come early.  Coming early to pick up your share is stressful to us.  We are working to give you the freshest produce possible.  Many times, we are harvesting right up to pick up time.  This is not a job interview. Don’t come early.
4. This year will not be the same as last year. 
Just like in #2, Mother Nature likes to surprise us.  Some years the tomatoes are great, and some years the potatoes are great! We cannot create the past, nor would we want to. Belonging to a CSA is a lesson in flexibility.
5. Enjoy your vegetables.
Take the time to enjoy what is in your share.  Try to find ways to prevent waste. Feel free to tear off the tops of veggies you plan to discard and leave them here. The chickens will thank you!  After picking up your basket, sort, and package the vegetables so they will stay fresh. Find recipes on our Pinterest page, the net, or better yet, ask people, and they will help you find ways to enjoy the experience of belonging to a CSA.
