Looking Forward to 2011

2011 Goals

What are you looking forward to in 2011?

A number of us spent this past week looking ahead to 2011 and the objectives and goals for the upcoming year!   This weekend, take some time to reflect for a moment on this past year and really look at ways to MAKE A DIFFERENCE in 2011.

That is what it’s all about!

Have a Happy & Safe New Years!

If you get time, post a comment on what you are looking forward to in 2011.

Compost Testing

Compost Processing Gift for Christmas

New appreciation for the process! First sign of product takes 3 months.

I am starting a compost program and I am looking forward to seeing the results.  At Midwest Laboratories, compost testing has occurred for clients across the country. The process takes awhile, but once it gets going, it picks up steam and results start to come much quicker.

The current compost testing package at Midwest Laboratories will give you a good indicator as to the value your compost can give to your garden or to your clients who are buying your  product.

From my limited experience, I have a new appreciation for this industry and look forward to joining others who have made compost production a way of life personally or professionally.

Last Week in 2010

Did you get to spend some time with family and friends this past Christmas Weekend?  I hope you did.

Some of you have this week off and for others, (retail) it can be a very busy week of managing returns and trying to move 2010 inventory.

At Midwest Laboratories, we have found this last week to be a very important one too.  A number of clients are trying to get last-minute analysis completed to make decisions for 2011.

In addition, a number of year-end tasks are trying to be completed to insure a smooth transition to 2011.

If you need any questions or analysis done in 2010, I want you to know staff is available this week. We are Open!

Good Luck with your last week in 2010!
