I like fall. I really do.
I love the fall asters, mums, and bright leaves.
I love the autumn sunsets.
I look forward to the hustle and bustle of Holiday shipments and Christmas parties.
But it is a challenging time of the year. Because it seems like all the seasons want to have attention at once. Yesterday we received a shipment of containers for the greenhouse. Today we made Pfeffernuese and Extreme Nut Candy. Friday we have to unload a semi-load of soil before leaving for our first Pride of Dakota Holiday showcase of the season in Grand Forks. 2015 greenhouse season competes with 2014 holiday season.
I need to remember that autumn is the time to slow down, hunker down for a long winter’s rest. I need to remember how blessed I am to have the opportunity to help people enjoy their holidays with tasty treats and how lucky I am to be able to play in the dirt in the spring and brighten people’s lives with colorful plants.
And I need to remember, that I truly do love fall!
