Monday: Packing 8:00am

 I cannot find the employee schedule on the farm hard drive. I will have to ask Zach if he moved it on Monday.

I don't know if who asked for time off, so I will wing it. I will ask for one group on Monday, and the rest of the people the next.

Saturday and next week

 We are in a bit of a slow time.

Saturday, no packing.

Next week, we should be picking up. We have lots of orders, and the new field should be starting. Weather is warm and favorable, would not mind a spot of rain.

Check in Sunday evening.

Saturday, and the next two weeks.

 Saturday:  Day off!

The next two weeks... With transplanting over, we now have slightly more than a full packing line of people. It would look like that in the next two weeks, it will be average or slightly below, so we will not be needing two lines at once. So as a result, we will not be needing every person, every day. 

So, if you were thinking of taking some time off, the next two weeks are a good time to do so.

I have asked Zach to create a template of employee rotation, set for each weekday, in which we will draw upon it to make the next day's schedule. 

Some days will be a full line, some days a part line, or occasionally, a day off. It all comes down to amount of harvest volume vs orders going out, and the timelines associated with each. 

We appreciate the contributions of everyone so far this season.

Wednesday: Transplanting and Packing



Transplanting Leave 6:20am Start 6:30am at Riddell

Normal crew, plus AJ

There are 5 racks of a "good" plants gh, left. The last gh, however, is a real challenge.We will see how it goes.

Almost done!

Also, Gilberto is too nice sometimes. He didn't tell me that some people on the local crew, while walking, were not bending over and fixing plants with their hands, but were ineffectively attempting to use their feet instead. I would NOT have tolerated that for one SECOND!!! That is why we add more walkers when the plants are a challenge. On other years, we used ONE walker only. This year has been a challenge, and we have been using two, and three when it is really bad.  If the plants are not planted properly, they will die. If some plants die, our yields go down, and we are essentially wasting time and money.  I am paying you all for a service, I want the service to be done properly and effectively.  Kudos to those who have been doing it right all along. Thanks. 

Packing 7:00am, everyone else

 Transplanting: It is still a bit too wet to go. Aiming for Wednesday.  The priority is harvesting and packing anyway...

Packing: 7:00am for everyone, please.



Sunday, August 9, 2020

Monday: No Transplanting, Limited Packing at 9:00am (With Correction)

 Transplanting:  We have 3 wagons left to do. We received 2.5 inches of rain this morning, the fields are soaked, and it impossible to plant.  We will go as soon as possible, Tuesday or Wednesday. 

Packing: On Saturday, we finished packing the wagons to compete the outgoing orders, so there is not stored broccoli to start with. We will have to wait until they harvest some, and bring it home. 

9:00am start Elisa,  Fran, Matthew, Seth, Sara(h)x3, Josh, Gracie, Gaige.
