OK. That’s not entirely true.
Despite this being one of own down times in sales and shipping, I have been exceptionally busy. Too busy to do much posting last week, and I apologize for that. We have had one of our sales persons take another job. So we’ve been interviewing new prospects for the last two weeks. After spending 3-4 hours a day in interviews, I had to work late to catch up and neglected the blog. Sorry.
Last Thursday, I attended the Arkansas Green Industry board meeting. We usually meet in Little Rock, but this time we met at the house of one of our gracious board members. After the meeting, we had the opportunity to tour Garvan Woodland Gardens. The Gardens were very impressive. I will be posting pictures of the tour later this week.
We also finished planting the mums last week. I will get some pictures of the fields later this week as well. So stay tuned to more Mum Chronicles. They’ll be as exciting as watching mums grow.
Finally, I have added an email subscription application to the blog. In the upper right corner, you can click on Parks Brothers’s Weblog by Email and type in your email address and the verification code to receive email notifications when the blog gets updated. Not that I don’t like you visiting regularly to check things out, but this makes it easy for you not to miss out on updates or other important information. As we all get better at this blog thing, I hope to utilize the blog more to keep everyone up to date.
Staying up to date is becoming more important than ever. There are some major changes coming to our industry in the next few years. Even more so than the last couple of years. Things are about to get very interesting.
