As I write this on March 8th 2017, the sun is shining and it is relatively warm (6°C) for the last days of winter. I can see grass and my wife is planning her garden for the summer. I don’t have spring fever yet but I can see the promise of shorts and sandals weather.
I have already restocked my green coffee bean supply for the spring and I now have a limited supply of a new coffee to offer you, Tanzanian AA. “Grown on the famous slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, this coffee offers a winey acidity, medium-body and berry-like aroma.” At least that is the advertised description of the cup. I have just finished my first roast and once I cup it I will post my opinion of this special African coffee.
Currently, I am making my plans to attend various farmers’ markets this summer. I may be going to three markets this year. I am the new chair of the board of directs for the fabulous Kemptville Farmers’ Market so I definitely will be going there on Sunday afternoons. I also plan on peddling my coffee at the scenic Chesterville Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings. I am also attempting to organize a new market during the week at The Community Market in Long Sault. It is still in the planning stage but I am hopeful that we will be able to enlist enough vendors to get it going on a Wednesday or Thursday afternoon.
I know what you are thinking, or maybe it’s just me thinking this. That doesn’t leave me a lot of time for golf. I am going to have to do some strategic thinking to be able to fit it all in.
Deep thinking for the end of winter.
