Excuse me......

January 2017...... really it's been that long.  Apparently, I need to find more time to update my website.  What has happened since 2017..... well LOTS!!!!! 
2017 was a year of reflecting on those growths, learning from the struggles and celebrating the successes. So for the 2018 season, MooseBay Greenhouses wanted to change the focus of the way we did business and brought the business back to the basics.  We discontinued two of our wholesale contracts and in its place we inserted succulent, f...

Skipped a year

Posted by Judy Kraushaar on Thursday, January 5, 2017
Holy Moly, it's 2017.  Yikes I missed a year.  2016 a year of growth, struggles, and successes which sums up everything in three words.

With only a few weeks left before my season begins I am frantically finalizing orders and reviewing what I have coming for the season.  I am very excited to see what this season will bring.  My husband says its going to be an early spring with warmer weather and I can't wait. 
Can you believe this will be my eighth season? I sure can't; I still learn new things every season and just when I think I have something figured out, it changes.  Eight years ago I didn't know how many wave petunias to ...

New Perspective

Posted by Judy Kraushaar on Wednesday, October 29, 2014
I was looking back at some of my blogs and I am always surprised by the way time flies by.  I shouldn't be surprised, I lived the time that seemed to have flown by but REALLY where does the time go.  It has been almost a year since I posted a note here.  

In that year I reflect back at what was accomplished, what was felt, how I made a difference, what my family contributed, how I contributed to my family, what I need to change, and what is to come.  In that reflection I also really take a loo...
