January

January is a different sort of month here on the farm.

Instead of being filled with action & activity like the other 11 months – i.e. the work of growing, harvesting and marketing our fruit & vegetables – January is a time for dreaming.

We dream about growing, harvesting and marketing our fruit & vegetables.

We dream of what we’ll do differently, and better. We dream about new ways to grow our crops, new crops to grow, how we’ll become more efficient and definitely more profitable, and on and on ….

When I walk around the farm in January, this is what I see …

We also dream about the sunshine & hot weather – and this year we experienced it in January – in Cuba!

Our son Darren married Katie there, and we enjoyed 7 glorious days of warmth and sunshine. It’s not often that we get to relax and not work when the weather is warm, so we made the most of it!
