    I am slightly amused that the report cites "calcium buildup" on the ice machine - I feel like it's almost always a nasty-sounding black slime! In any case, I'm glad that there are a lot of Harvestime fans here - I lived in Hyde Park for years and loved going to the produce store there, and I really like Harvestime, too. In both cases, the produce is way better--and often a more interesting selection--than the big stores.
