Beating the Winter Blahs by Planning For Spring and Summer

While there isn't a deadline for anything rushing up to meet us, we still have a lot to do to get ready for the Spring selling season.  

We are in the process of planning our first annual lavender festival for this summer

Every day I am thankful that we took the leap and decided to start this farm when our jobs were moved.  It was terrifying, but we've been happier than we ever were working for a big company.

The majority of our summer was spent weeding and attending craft shows, fairs, and farmers' markets.  We have met a ton of great people and made some really good business connections.  We learned so much this summer.  We are finding our niche and settling in nicely.

What I found out at that first sale, and at every sale since then, is that people are awesome.  They are kind and supportive even if they aren't buying anything.  People love hearing our story and Jerry sure loves telling it!  They are genuinely curious and interested in hearing more.  They want to be able to visit the farm.  I think later this summer when the plants are blooming and we have an open house, we will have more visitors than we even imagined.

You Gotta Have Faith

I never, ever would have imagined myself as a person who watched the weather at least twice a day. It's so difficult to describe how stressful winter is for a farmer. Both Jerry and I have farmers in our families, and have both heard them go on and on about the weather. I always wondered what the big deal was.  I mean, you can't change it.  It's kind of like a trainwreck though, when it's awful, it's hard to look away.  Somehow it seems like if you watch it closely enough maybe you WILL be able to change it!    ...
