Time to rest a bit

It seems our busiest part of the season is now over. The day to day operation must still be done. We clean algae, skimmers and filters, pull weeds, stock inventory, and keep the plants looking good. Some of the other things we have to do this time of year, is place the shade cloth over the greenhouses. It's a bit of a pain to do every year, but it keeps the greenhouses cooler. Unfortunately, we have to remove them in the fall. Leaving them on during the winter, won't let the snow slide off, which would be disastrous to the framework. Pulling weeds is a bit of a hassle, but a necessary chore during the season.

I'm very proud of my staff this year. My returning crew has made me very happy this year, by continually surprising me at their professionalism and eagerness to work, and do a great job. Having a great crew, makes my job so much easier. Thank you guys!
