This has been the most boring and uneventful winter to talk about that I can remember.
Weather challenges, compared to any other year have been minimal. So far. Oh, it did rain in California. A lot. Enough that Emergency water restrictions will likely be lifted for southern California, and for all intents and purposes the multi-year drought is pretty well done.
Three things today:
1/ Happy New Year. As always we know 2 things are going to happen for 2017. It will be better. It always has to be better. It’s going to be better. In whatever way that it is NOT currently better. AND, sales will kick up substantially next week as all those New Year’s Resolutions to clean things up internally kick in. AND maybe this year it won’t just be all about Kale!
Many things to talk about!
But first, I wanted to pass this along because I think it’s important – then we’ll talk about bizarre weather and how it’s affecting some crops.
A couple of weeks ago 450 of us, attending the Certified Organic Association Annual Conference in Vernon, BC, had the pleasure to spend some time with Dr. Vandana Shiva, one of the most outspoken and foremost advocates of organic agriculture on the planet. If you haven’t heard of her – do the google thing – she’s been taking on Monsanto, GMO, and conventional agriculture on our behalf for a very long time.
