Last Chance Lettuce!


Hi Friends of The Market,

Please pardon the extra email.
I’ve just closed the online market for this week but I’ve recieved an email from Jonathan Stamper at Foxtail Farm which I’ve attached below. If you’re interested please make arrangments with Jonathan directly. His email is;
jstamper@drallen.net
Thanks!
Don

If you think it’s appropriate, could you send the market customers an email letting them know we could probably harvest lettuce mix tomorrow?

I would like to take advantage of it if possible, just in case the weather finally kills it this weekend. I have thought that several times, but the upcoming few days looks to be the coldest yet.

Thanks,
Jonathan
