January Planning

Posted on by Teri Jenkins

This is one of my favourite photos, which I dug up by googling it on the internet.  Have you ever Googled yourself?  It's rather alarming, never mind when you're trying to find a specific photo. 

Anyhow, here's Jon and I last winter, planning and creating a seed order (specifically, doing the required "seed search" that the organic certification requires) for TapRoot Farms.  I've never met a farmer who doesn't love the winter, time spent poring over glossy seed catalogs and planning for next season.  A good season starts with well-laid plans, and that's what we are doing right now.  We are communicating with various retailers/wholesalers who will carry our produce to see what they want to buy, so we can plan what to grow and how much.  Salad mix will definitely continue next year, and there will be more crops, too.

Hope you are cozy this Sunday, thinking warm thoughts and enjoying life!
