If we have to change delivery days, we’ll let you know ASAP, and we’ll work with you to make sure that you can get your veggies-or provide a refund if the new day just does not work for you.

What if I go on vacation? Can I skip a week?

Not a problem! You absolutely can skip a week. Just let us know at least 1 week in advance (or 2, if possible). We’ll make sure that we have extra veggies for you in the future.

Alternately, you could arrange for a friend to take your veggies for a week. If your friend is in our delivery area, we could even deliver to their door. Just contact us ahead of time ( :

What if I have to drop out half way through the season?

If you have to cancel your veggie box membership, please let us know 2 weeks in advance if possible. We can provide you with a refund for the deliveries that you have paid for but not yet received.

When does it start?

Our planned start date for our Spring 2022 veggie box program is the week of May 19, 2022.  We may have to move our start date 1-2 weeks later if it is still cold and snowy.  If we end up starting later, we’ll just run later so that you can get all of your deliveries.

How many types of veggies are there to choose from each week?

For the first few weeks in the spring, you can expect plenty of fresh greens like arugula, spinach, lettuce, bok choi, and salad mix, plus root veggies from storage. Later on, we’ll also have beets, green onions, spring turnips, and radishes. And as summer progresses, the cucumbers, tomatoes, summer squash and sweet peppers get ready.
