So here we are at the beginning of March and I can already foresee a bright and busy season ahead for us here at Sedum Master Inc.
I am once again back in the office after a winter hiatus or “hibernation” and thrown right into the swing of things. The guys are already working and prepping the greenhouse for the orders for this spring and the way the weather has been lately it wouldn’t surprise if spring comes early. Just last week the temperatures flew to a balmy 18° C! It was a record breaking temperature back on Feb. 18, 2017 and now it has been back and forth with normal cold and wintery temperatures. Cold and flu season upon us? I think so!
Over the winter Debra came on board and is looking after the production at the greenhouse. Always smiling and great personality she blends right in with the rest of us. I find it nice to have some female comradery here! If you are by the greenhouse please introduce yourself to Debra and she would be more than happy to help you.
We have some new guys here all the way from Mexico earlier than normal in order to help have the greenhouse prepared and ready for the spring madness. They are enjoying their newly built bunkhouse as it is a hop, step and jump closer to the greenhouse. The rest of team will be coming up through the spring as things really start moving and we look forward to having them back as we cherish their hard work ethic and laughter. They really are like an extended family and we don’t feel complete until we are all together again.
Updates on the crew here:
Ed and Marg Magda: They kept warm through the winters at home snuggling with their “3rd” son “Tuggy”. They were kept busy though preparing the greenhouse, equipment and getting supplies and going on daily adventures. Tuggy on the other hand, he doesn’t care for the cold and preferred his cozy bed.
Greg Magda: Well Greg kept up with the addition on to the greenhouse and making sure everything is completed on time. Greg was off to the Mantz Show in Baltimore, MD, USA to make connection in the greenhouse retail market side of things.
Ray Magda: Ray was trying to fit in some time snowmobiling with his wife Melissa but with the weather this year he didn’t get in as much as he would have liked. He had a busy year with the building of his new home with Melissa and hoping to reside in it this spring. I’m looking forward to the BBQ’s, good times and the memories that will be made there.
Rob Lebrow: Rob was quite busy in the office this year over the winter as this year was a year of many updated computer programs and getting us all linked together and working more proficiently in the office and with paperwork. I think he did a great job, now for us all to get with the program and educate ourselves. Even found time to showcase our products at the Toronto Landscape Ontario Congress Show in January. With all the hard work meant he could get some time to play too! Rob and his girlfriend Lindsey took a much deserved trip to Mexico and had a great time with the many adventures they were able to do there. He came back much refreshed and ready to take on the 2017 season.
Myself, Lori Davey: Well like mentioned previous I was on a winter hiatus for a couple of months. I got to spend lots of great quality time with my family, lots of sport involvement and travelled to Sault Ste. Marie, ON for a Christmas holiday. I was able to get some good cross country skiing time in. Now I’m back to the grind learning my way through these updated programs and systems and making sure my files are ready for a busy year ahead!
