Hello, I am new to the Vegetable Growers Group.  My name is Richard Edmonds and I have a company that sells on-site ethanol processing machines in Canada.  With our processing system you can turn wasted crops into fuel for use with diesel and gasoline equipment.

So, I have a question to other vegetable Farmers out there--am I the only one concerned that the harvest hasn't even really begun yet, and already the price to the Farmer has dropped by $5.00. Wouldn't it make more sense to set a price across the board for the produce, so when the chains approach we have a unified price, and we can ALL make some money, rather than just a few who will undercut someone else to get the business?

We sent our application into F.A.R.M.S., so hopefully one of our farm assistants will arrive here from Trinidad by the end of April when we'll start seeding. The ground is still very wet. Last week a reporter from A Channel (Barrie) came to talk about the weather and the up-coming planting season. I grabbed a handful of muck and squeezed it like a sponge--the water just dripped out of it--too wet! We're itching to get outside and start working with the muck/peat soil. Once you start opening up the land, you inhale that earthy aroma, the birds are singing--there's no feeling like it!
