Jason weeding strawberries in our second strawberry house!
Happy New Year from Tumbling Shoals Farm! Time to make those resolutions! Truth be told, the only New Year’s resolution I ever kept was to never make another New Year’s resolution. Yep. Still sticking to that one several years later! But resolution season happens to fall into our production planning season, so I reckon a couple resolution-ish things sneak their way into our planning. Like, we really are going to keep the deer fence baited this year to prevent the astounding amount of crop damage done by those pesky creatures. Or, we’re going to keep up with the tomato trellising so they never get unruly. Or, we will write down everything we do on the farm each day!
This year, on top of resolution season falling into planning season, I’m also reading this book about how habits work and (hopefully) how to make new ones (The power of Habit: Why we do what we do in life and business). Look out husband and employees, you are going to be one big experiment in cues and rewards!
