crop planning for next year

Crop planning for each year is a meticulous process. It involves attention to detail, an intricate review of the season so far, lots of time with all of the grower group and a fair bit of luck.

We start by predicting how popular each of the boxes is going to be from May 2007 to May 2008. We can do this with quite a bit of confidence based on what happened this year, but when we throw new boxes like the summer and winter box into the melting pot it throws everything up in the air. We then plan the contents of every box for the whole year!
