Q and A

Dos Gringos



Q:  Given the title I would guess that you’re planning something?


A: Boy, are we ever.  Pretty soon we will be heading into our third busiest time
 of the year - Valentine’s Day - but more about that in weeks to come. This week
 and next week we are planning and planting our Gypsy Dianthus and Sunflower
 crops for April and May. Hint - Mother’s Day is in May. 


Q: Can you tell us more about planning and planting, etc.?

 A: Of course. The days of just throwing a bunch of seed in the ground and
hoping that you can sell it at harvest time are over. We have to strategically
plan and plant for our clients so that we can fill 100% of your p.o.’s on time with
the freshest quality possible. 

Q: Why are you focusing on Gypsy for this time period as well?

A: Gypsy is a great filler flower for our bouquet programs and also works well
as a long lasting stand-alone item for our consumer bunch program.  Our
Waxflower crop was early this year so we are planning on planting an extra
safety stock of Gypsy to take the place of Wax in bouquets should we need to do that.


Q: Cool. We know your Sunflowers are your thing.  Got anything new or interesting to share with us about Sunflowers? 

A: Well did you know that mathematical biologists love Sunflowers?  They are
one of the most obvious—as well as the prettiest—demonstrations of a hidden
mathematical rule shaping the patterns of life called the Fibonacci
Sequence. This sequence is a number set in which each number is the sum of
the previous two (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, ...) and is
clearly demonstrated in the Sunflower heads. In this case, the telltale sign is
the number of different seed spirals on the Sunflower's face. Count the
clockwise and counterclockwise spirals that reach the outer edge, and you'll find a pair of numbers from the
sequence: 34 and 55, or 55 and 89, or—with very large sunflowers—89 and 144.
It’s a bit complicated but interesting. Ok, it’s interesting to us at least.



Ahhhh…ok. Let’s leave it at that. Let’s see some pictures…
