Well ,seems like noone submits to there journals anymore ,including myself so here goes. Its been a crazy busy year so far ,the berry season was off the hook ,we sold out all summer. It was good enough that we bought more land and added more berry plants . Then I started looking for a bigger evaporator ,I was going to go RO but we don't that kind of power supply yet ,so spent many nights and days searching for a good used evap. They just weren't there ,the ones that were, were way to big for our building ,h I had a line on a couple and deer season got in the way and I missed the sales. Well I started looking at new ones and I got a heck of a deal at D&G ,a 3x10 will be ready for pickup on 1/17/14 .Cutting it a little close ,but we will be fine ,Ive been cutting a lot of extra wood and Im running extra mains tomorrow. Im hoping to add about 250 to what I have now. WEll take care all and Ill add pictures when we take delivery. Take care all and God Bless ,Al

Winter project will be a better format for journals so they are easier to use and to follow what's new.
