Whee! A lot has been written about “Seasonal Affective Disorder” in the context of how depressed we all get in the winter. Nobody ever talks about the flip side; I’m fairly well convinced that this syndrome is more of a bipolar nature. And furthermore, I love the manic nature of this time of year. In fact, I’ve chosen a profession where I think I can just cross off the “disorder” part of the phenomenon and embrace it for the way things are! What? Three new tractor drivers are learning three different tasks, and the tomatoes need to get staked, and the electrician wants to know what lighting fixtures to put in the new farmstore? No problem, it’s June! We’d better get the ginger in the ground ASAP, and seed kale in the greenhouse, and there are 15,000 lettuce, kale, chard, and flower plants to put in the ground. Yay! In December, give me a good book and a comfortable spot on the couch, but who has time to read now?
