Starting in spring 2011, we will be incorporating 2-D codes on our 4” Charley’s Vegetables and Herbs. This new technology will allow consumers to read the 2-D code with their smart phones (using either BeeTagg, ScanLife or comparable apps) and be directed to product specific pages on our existing Charley’s Veggies website www.CharleysVeggies.com.
Here are a couple of samples of our new tags with the 2-D code.
Once the code is scanned, users will be shown a product page like this one:
We will be adding more information and content to www.CharleysVeggies.com before next spring as well as updating the look and functionality of the website so that it will be optimized for mobile users. Charley’s Vegetables is our exclusive line of 4” vegetables available to IGC’s. The name comes from one of the owners, Charley Parks, who happened to be plowing in his garden when we were trying to come up with a brand name for our vegetables.
Here are some more links to download the apps needed to scan the 2-D codes:
We have recently added graphics of the plant tags to each variety page of Charley’s Vegetables. This will allow you to get a visual on what each variety of vegetable looks like and also become familiar with the Charley’s Vegetables tags. Now you will know what to look for when you go to buy your vegetables.
We are currently shipping Charley’s Veggies to southern Louisiana, Dallas/Fort Worth and have also shipped a few shipments in Arkansas and Oklahoma.
If you are in any of these areas and are interested in purchasing Charley’s Veggies, you can contact you local garden center and request that they carry them; or you can leave a comment here on the blog, and we can let you know where the nearest garden center is to you that carries Charley’s Veggies.
