Our dear copy editor, Janis Gandy, gave everyone two daffodils for their desks. It's been a long winter and we are all happy to finally see spring arrive.
Many coworkers came in my office with their flowers so we could post a thank-you photo for Janis. I took the photo from behind my desk. I won't name everyone from Successful Farming, but the woman in the middle is Diana Weesner, who is the person you will talk to on the phone if you call Living the Country Life. Next to her in purple is our apprentice, Anna McConnell, who wrote the cover story for our Early Spring issue.
Below the daffodil photo is an old photo of the Successful Farming magazine staff (no internet back then) in March 1985, celebrating Ag Day with a full table of food. I am in the middle. I notice that I didn't get a glass of milk to hold, and I don't remember eating the food.
Celebrate farmers and enjoy spring!
