If you have placed an order and did not receive an email, please check your spam folder.  I don’t know why people click spam on their order invoices, but enough do that gmail seems to be automatically classifying them as spam now.  You can also look up the status of your order at any time under My Account.

22 Oct 2022: A customer reported that Bitcoin payment was broken and it probably has been for at least a month.  It is fixed now.

20 Oct 2020: We have a potential early frost coming in this weekend, so I am scrambling to prepare for that.  There will be no more shipping until that has passed.

14 Oct 2020: The next batch of shipping will probably happen this coming weekend.  This is the time of year when I start to get a lot of inquiries about when orders will ship.  Many potato orders have shipped or will soon, depending on the varieties.  Some are not harvested yet.  Oca, mashua, and ulluco will not be harvested for at least a month yet and more likely two.  It takes at least two weeks after they are harvested before they are cleaned, dried, and ready to ship.  There are currently 250 preorders in the queue and I can ship about 30 orders per day.  So, as always, I recommend that you set your expectations that your order will be delivered by spring.  If your weather permits, your order may ship sooner, but I really can’t predict.

29 September 2020: Order backlog is cleared as of this afternoon.  The weather is looking good, so it will probably be at least a week before I do another shipping day.

19 September 2020: We’re entering into a very busy time of the year over the next two months, between harvest and orders ramping up.  Expect slower shipping times and very slow response to emails.  I’m still shipping orders for in stock items, but mostly on rain days, so it won’t be surprising if lead times extend out to three weeks.  We have rain in the forecast Wed-Fri this week and I expect that I will catch up with the current order backlog then.  After that, timing will continue to be largely at the whim of mother nature until the harvest is done in December.
