Lately I've Been Thinking...

Lately I have been thinking a lot about our staff; wondering what they are doing in the "off" season.  Our orchard is different than so many business because we are only open for such a short time.  Our staff comes back each year and new hires are brought in each year to work for some of August, all of September and October and the beginning of November and then we say good bye until the follow summer.  Since we are dependent on the apple crop, the pumpkin crop, the donut shop and the cider mill, all of which people tend to only think of in September and October, we do not have enough other work to keep the staff year round, thus my wondering where they each are and what they are doing now. Some of them I can keep up with on Facebook, a few more send the random email with a tidbit of news or the request for a letter of reference, yet for the most part I am left wondering.  During November I was so busy catching up with my own house, family and life in general that I hardly paused to think about all of them but sitting here quietly at the computer today, I wonder.
