Hoping you have an enjoyable holiday season!
First of all, best of the season to all of you hard-working people in the produce world – hopefully you can walk away from the stress now. Did I order enough broccoli? Will we run out of Brussels sprouts? What will I do with those 2 cases of cranberries I didn’t need, or the extra Poultry Spice clams? Well, it’s pretty well too late now for many of you, so just let it go if you can. (We’ve let go of the fact that we a few dozen extra packs of poultry blend ourselves.)
Ya’ know…, you don’t get a bad book review if you don’t write a book.
Old saying. True. Sometimes I write market reports, relying on really solid information from growers, blended with the wisdom that comes with 30 years of involvement in this industry, and then a couple of days later I find that everything has changed, and what I said was just plain wrong. This creates a conundrum. I could fill a page with bland, nuanced lines highlighted with “could” “maybe” and “speculation has it”, but instead I choose to just throw it out there as it comes in. And it usually sticks.
