Hello. I've heard encouraging news that spring sales are off to a good start in California due to great weather. I'd like to hear from those of you in warmer climates. How is the season kicking off?
This is what the grower in California told me:
"Yes, California is starting out strong, both So Cal and Nor Cal. Sales are good and the weather has been fantastic. It makes me think that it is the weather, duh! All our carefully laid plans taking the economy, last year’s sales, etc. etc. into account and it really is all about the weather in our industry. But we will see how the rest of spring goes."
Will weather trump the economy? I sure hope so. We can't control either but at least with the weather, we have hope.
