Jason here. I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I’ve been busy the last few months and have not had time to post anything. I have been neck deep working on getting us ready to implement a new sales and inventory software program. So heads up, we will be using a completely new program this spring. There are some new features that will streamline some functions and make it easier for you and there are some things we are going to have to work on to be ready for spring.
Hopefully this transition will be relatively painless but it’s technology so you know how that can go. All that we ask is that you be patient with us if we run into any issues. I’ll be working the kinks out in January and February to be ready for March.
Thank you to all our poinsettia customers for another great poinsettia season. We sold out early and had a great looking crop with just a little over our projected dump. Basically, that means we have sold every single plant the looked good enough to sell. Actually as I write this we have a few #8 pink and white and some #6 pink, jingle bell and valentine (winter rose) left, but the total left is very small compared to what we grew. Again a big THANK YOU to our garden centers and fundraisers.
We did run into some hiccups with deliveries. We are working on new plans for next year to try to alleviate the issues and problems we encountered with our deliveries. Please know that we are aware of these issues, and we are working on getting them worked out.
I didn’t have time to take many pictures this year and there aren’t many left to take pictures of. Here are some pictures from our garden center along with some green house pictures I took a couple of weeks ago.

These pictures were taken in our retail garden center.
I took these pictures on Nov. 11, 2015
These were taken on Nov. 25
This is a pink that reverted to the red and white that was used to get the pink. I think these would sell if they could get them to look like this all the time. All 3 colors are on one plant.
