Kula Fields | Produce Delivery Nov. 6 – 9 2013 | What’s In The Box?

Kula Fields 11-06-13 boxes

I’m sure you’ve heard the term “cooking with fire”.  That’s what today has been like for me.  My internet has been sooo slooow for three and a half weeks, if it evens connects at all. It is painful. I had the internet company come check everything out and they said, “it must be your router.” I went out, bought a new router, only to get overly excited and simultaneously disappointed because there was no change and my new router wasn’t exactly cheap. I called the cable company to relay my internet woes yet again…only to be told that it would take a week and a half to get another technician out and that I should come swap out my cable modem. I did as instructed but with no luck.
Trying to answer emails, and run a business from your cell phone or ipad is not fun at all and the backlog of work that needs to be completed is great. I waited patiently for my appointment and when the blessed day arrived I get a phone call to tell me that everything should be running fine from what they can see on their end. Huh? So I check it out, and yep, everything seems to be running smooth for the time being. Still no explanation of what the problem was and it seemed to be an isolated incident.
At the moment…I feel like I’m cooking with fire. I’m not on a cell phone, I can clearly see my screen and I’m working through the backlog of emails and requests that had previously gone undone. Internet running full throttle!
I’m able to get all of my messages too! With that, I was able to see that Longan was available if I wanted it as well as organic crimini mushrooms. I’d be crazy to turn those items down. It’s great to have some variety! Hope you enjoy them!
We also have an extra special surprise item for you this week….just because!
