Although the air is freezing and our fields lay dormant a farmers work is never done. This time of year you will find me mostly in my office. I take this time to clean out my files, review last years growing plans, preparing for the changes we will make for the next season and go over the financial records. Then there are all the meet and greets with customers and trade shows to attend. Of course I will certainly squeeze in a few escapes to a ski hill. Last season I didn’t ski a single day and when I tell my old ski buddies that their responses are rip with disgust. How can I live with myself? Its the motivation I need to right that wrong. Although it feels strange to say it now, soon enough the seeds will begin to arrive and the season will start again. By as early as February 1st we will start our planting season, this next year early then ever to fill our new hoop houses.
