Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's Off To Work We Go!

Who wants to be writing anything this week that will tell others what you’ve been up to or what you’re gonna do. So many people I know or care about that I have met in my time at Jenkins are right now, today, involved in the G Bomb and the soul-destroying consequences.

It’s hard to look forward to the coming season in Hort where everything is so messed up. These last few weeks have made Covid look like a head cold and the word resilience needs to be scrapped from our vocab as for good grief we are all having to go so much deeper than that.

I haven’t even had silt on my shiny shoes, but our hurting is real too.

While I try to snap out of this “mood” I tell myself come on Jo, you’ve gotta keep going the wheels can’t stop completely. While one person is not producing or earning the rest of us need to, that’s how it works.

While it’s human nature to envy others who appear to be keeping on going when they haven’t experienced a loss that’s what we’ve just gotta do. Keep going. As with any type of loss, there’s a process to go through and it’s surely okay to feel low or slow for a while but the reality is we need to keep going.

On that note I’ll say again, our Hort industry in NZ is small, we are a close group that will ride the storms or cyclones or hail or whatever is thrown our way. We’re all getting a turn of hard times.

So, hi ho, hi ho, it’s back to work for Jo.

The best thing I can do for you is to carry on being at the end of the phone or email, delivering what you need when you need it.

Give me a call.
