The Online Store is back online. I am not going to lie or prop Peppers by Mail up artificially. We are struggling. After so much time in the hospital, we lost our farm and home. We are only under shelter due to the kindness of many patrons, friends, and loved ones. Due to multiple amputations, I could not grow during the 2019 season, so we lost about everything. Everything except our seed stock.Continue reading Seed Sales Resumed !!!
The good news: With much help from folk who donated to the GoFundMe page, we purchased a nice used camper. Photos are over at ajdrew.com, With continued support from you fine people, I hope to get a ramp and deck built so I can get in and out. Even the land on which it is parked is only possible due to friendship and good people. Thank you so very much.Continue reading Update
We sold several Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares during the off season. Now that surgeons took half of each foot and I have been unable to work, the bank has taken our farm. Even today I still have a gaping wound in my right foot and a wound vacuum attached to it. As a result, my family is essentially homeless. Our best hope is to beg with a GoFundMe page so that we can purchase a camper trailer and find a slot to park it.Continue reading Refunds for CSA Pre-orders
We are squatters. On Friday, July 26th, Citizen’s Union Bank sold our farm. We are about to be homeless. It did not matter that the family paid $160,000.00 for it and I had only about $17,000.00 left to pay off. It did not matter that we were only $1,000.00 behind. It did not matter that doctors had removed about half of each of my foot. They foreclosed. After the fees, taxes and penalties they demanded about $60,000.00 for the $17,000.00 debt. My advice for anyone with a mortgage is do not get sick or hurt.Continue reading Our Farm is Gone
Things seemed to be looking up. Thanks to some incredible people we managed to find and plant a camper trailer. Then things started to slide backwards. While trying to move our belongings, I ripped open my right foot & learned heart attacks do not always come with traditional symptomsContinue reading Living without shoes…
Before saying a thing, let me assure folk that I still believe I will be able to fill the 2019 CSA pre-orders. Beyond that, I have great doubts as I am now about unable to walk. I have closed our online store to insure that in a worse case situation I will be able to restart in 2020. But right now, it is doubtful we will have fresh peppers to sell during the 2019 season. My health has not been well and it is showing in some of the worst imaginable ways.Continue reading Horrific News from PBM
