Harvest 72" #10 was announced on special for $229.00 last Monday. The special is available until Dec 15th, OR WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. I did NOT want to miss out on the chance to finally purchase one of these units so I placed my order last Wednesday. There's still time for you to take advantage of this special yourself - give me a call at 417-886-9489 to place your order as this special is NOT available in my online store.
In less than a week (on Tuesday night), FedEx showed up at our door with these 3 boxes. The top box is some THRIVE Foods that I was excited to get (including THRIVE FD Green Onions which I immediately put to use for the dinner I was already prepping but skipping that ingredient - I'll share about that experience in my next blog post). The other two boxes are my Harvest 72" #10. I had never put one together but wanted to document the assembly process to share with you.
The first step was to make sure all the parts were included - they were. Next you need a rubber mallet as your only tool, and the instructions. I quickly set off to get started.
THRIVE Whole Egg Powder). I did have a few cans of Rice leftover so it's in the case just beside the Harvest. As I continue my Q (monthly shipments of THRIVE Foods), I look forward to needing a 2nd Harvest and not being able to have a rotation by category because I have tons of food stored for my family.
One surprise was how easy it was to move the Harvest around before I added my food. And if I had only stored freeze dried and dehydrated foods, I could still move it around; but 28 cans of rice are heavy so it's more difficult to move around.
It's not really an issue with the Harvest - but you don't want to put open cans in the rotation because once you pull it out, you only want to put things in at the top of it's rotation. If you try to put it back in from the bottom, you can cause your cans to jam up in the rotation. So I did not put any of my open cans in the Harvest.
My second issue is that I can't use the Harvest as is for boxes of cereal, cake mix, etc.
There are solutions for both of my dilemmas. The solutions require additional expenditures which my budget wasn't prepared for last week. I'll be slowly acquiring them, making the Harvest even more awesome!
Harvest #10 Front Shelf for $12.99 each or the 4 Pack for $42.24. These let me store the open can in front of it's corresponding unopened cans.
Side Shelf Four Pack for $38.99. As the name implies, you get 4 shelves in the pack. You can install all 4 on one side, or some on one side and some on the other.
Top Shelf for Harvest for $19.49. It allows me to store things on top of the Harvest.
There are several other accessories that I can get for my Harvest but I'll save those to share another day. In the meantime, I'll be enjoy being able to send my children in to get a can of rice, THRIVE FD Green Beans, or whatever I need - because now they can!
