Sprout Farm Newsletter Dec. 9, 2017
Good Morning Everyone,
This may be the last newsletter of the season.
It's difficult to believe that it was only two weeks ago when the truck pulled into the driveway with 500 Christmas trees and now we're down to 120. We still have trees in every size but some sizes are sure to run out soon. Karen and I are still making your favorite decorations and we have lots of bundled greens and pine roping to make any home look festive.
Our local honey and jams are on sale and make great Christmas gifts. We're keeping our apples in the cooler alone with the cranberries and peeled squash. Here's a fun computer tip. This just happened. I went to look up the correct spelling of peeled. It turns out that if you type ctrl-f7 you will automatically pull up a dictionary/thesaurus. Sure enough, I had the spelling for 'peeled' correct for my context but when I looked back at the screen I was surprised to see that the line now ended with, 'cranberries and bare-assed squash'. So keep an eye on those programs or you may end up with a more colorful letter than you expected. Thank you to everyone who has told me you enjoy the newsletter. This doesn't come naturally and I can remember how easy it was for our daughter Rebecca to say the cleverest things that would make you smile. This is the time of year for sweet memories. I just found out that YouTube has all those wonderful Christmas specials with Andy Williams, Bing Crosby and Dean Martin. Now if I could just figure out how to cast YouTube to the TV I could spike the hot chocolate, sit back and enjoy the memories.
As soon as we close for the season Jay and I will hibernate for a while and then get a little work done on the house. There will be no traveling this winter for us. Spring will come soon enough and we need the rest. Jay and I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and thank you for a wonderful season. Please stay safe over the winter and we'll see you in the spring.
Jay and Phyllis Sprout
