Happy Spring to all!
Betsy and I hope that the winter has been good to you all and that you have been enjoying the first vestiges of Spring. Tomorrow (Saturday) is the first Farmers’ Market of the year and the first day of Spring. To mark that occasion we are also launching our e-newsletter. We hope to send out one each week during the season to let you all know what is going on here at the farm, what crops are coming along, and other farm related items that we think that you maybe interested in. They will be brief and not take up too much of your time. We get so many questions from folks about what’s going on out here that we felt that this would be a good way to keep people up to date. If you wish to not receive this newsletter just reply so to this message or just let us know at market. On the other hand if you know folks who you think would be interested in news of the farm then please feel free to forward this to them and encourage them to e-mail us to be added to the list.
For us it has been a fast and furious winter with lots of projects being started and completed, entirely too many meetings and lots of fun and educational travel. Betsy has taken on the mantle of the most traveled this off season with trips to Vancouver (she let me tag along for this one), Florida, Missouri/Oklahoma, Virginia, and most recently Ecuador! All flower related and she saw and learned a lot of great things. We have always felt that it is very important for our business to continue our education and research into new things, in fact we still spend up to 5% of our gross income on this continuing education and we hope that you all reap the benefits of it!
