October 6, 2014
Once again, you--our customers--have made our shipping and sales season a great success and we thank you!
Unlike the summer of 2013, there were no heavy rains or standing water ... only dust in the air and a few clouds in the sky that teased us with the prospects of rainfall. The 80 year old well decided to go on strike in June so (a few thousand dollars later!) we were irrigating all summer from the lake on top of the hill! Being raised on a working farm, I can assure you that farming remains a challenge whatever the crop!
The very last rhizome was lined out yesterday and this morning we are receiving rain that we haven't seen in weeks. The task ahead is putting the catalog together during the dull days of winter. The plan, as always, is to get the 2015 catalog in the mail to you in March.
Again, thanks for your fine orders and for your many kind emails, notes and phone calls. You are the best!!!
With all good wishes,
