Dear Folks,

   We have decided not to venture into DC tomorrow near the ball stadium or DOT because of a special ball game tomorrow.  Many of the streets that Oliver must take to get to VA after the DOT market will be closed and he will probably not be on time to his afternnon-evening market if he tries to leave DC around 2:30pm.  Also many of his customers at DOT have said that they will not be there, but will be tele-working because of the game.

So - Oliver will not have your CSA boxes for tomorrow.  We will be happy to either give you a double box on Tuesday, July 24 or if a double would be too much to handle at one time, he could add items gradually over the next couple of weeks to make up for the missed week. 

We are sorry to abruptly disrupt your vegetable and fruit deliveries in the middle of the summer, but this seems like the best use of Oliver's time for tomorrow.  Thanks for your understanding.

Please respond to this email to let me know that you received it and also let me know how you would like your vegetables and fruits - all at one time or gradually.

 

Thanks,

Louise
