It is the month of reflection.  Not only to remember the men and women that fight for our country but also a time to reflect on the freedoms that we should not take for granted.  I am most fortunate to live in a country where I can be free to dream and be able to also live it.  Thank you to all that make this possible.  This month is also the month where I get to choose what products I want in the greenhouse.  I think that I may have a source for those beloved alpine petunias.  Keep your fingers crossed.  I am currently at the Green Trade Conference in Saskatoon learning new techniques for the industry and meeting people that have the same passion I have for the work that we do.  It is comforting to know that there are still people that really care about what they do and are so passionate about giving quality product and quality service.  I think that there aren't too many other industries that can say the same.  I am trying to get the Potato Grower Association to give me more information on the Late Blight problem that is Canada wide.  We as producers of any plant product has the responsibility to properly dispose of infected plants and know the signs and symptoms of late blight.  It is going to be a major issue in 2011 if we don't try to work together.  The seed stock can be infected which includes potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, petunias, eggplant and even certain types of weeds.  This DOESN'T mean that the seed is infected but we need to be aware and educated.  Stay tuned for more on the Late Blight infestation. 
Take time for yourself to remember and reflect.
Take care until next time.
