More for 2009!
Yours Truly Hello, faithful readers and produce lovers. You may have noticed that there have been no blogs yet this year. Please have my apologies with a promise that more is on the horizon. My "spare" time here has been loaded up with several projects; all aimed at providing customers a better total experience.

First up; I have been training a few new faces in the ways of produce. It is fun to work side by side with an apprentice, having their young brains soak up wisdom like a sponge. However, babysitting them while trying to get the aisle in order does take its toll on what I can get done in a day. The good news is that this will eventually mean more time to dedicate to projects.

And that first project is creating a backend system and database for the store website. This will be used for (among other things) a newsletter system, a user-submitted recipe system, and the ability to place orders online. I'm especially excited about the newsletter system as customers have repeatedly asked for a way to be contacted about our special events and sales (like our very successful Free Sample days).

And of course, there will always be the small projects that sap my time as well. Currently we are putting together a new labeling system. This means we'll be able to add special messages (a list of ingredients, for example) to anything we package ourselves.

So, stay tuned - we'll be slowly rolling out these changes over the next few months. I just love being proactive!
