Brewster's Millions

Do you remember that Richard Pryor movie from the 80s?  Brewster’s Millions.  About the guy who had to spend a million dollars within a year and actually found it challenging.  Each January, as we spend our spend our days purchasing our seeds and supplies for the season, I am reminded of that movie.  Brewster should have farmed.  Seriously. I feel like a one woman economic stimulus package this time of year.  Forget champagne and caviar though; it’s seeds and potting mix and fertilizer for us. I have to admit, though, that it’s kind of fun.  Rampant purchasing seems to add to the annual optimism we farmers suffer from.  We roll through town in our ancient beat-up trucks and baggy overalls throwing down dollars like a hip-hop song, with a sanguine surety that this season is going to be great.
