Raj Farm: Status call 3 notes

Plant Manager (PM) Raj : Howdy folks, hope you had a great time past few weeks. Thanks for checking in. Sorry for the call cancellations past 3 weeks, had to take care of some personal work. But Raj Farm has been buzzing with activity even during my absence

Customer: It’s alright, family comes first

PM Raj: Thanks for the understanding, really appreciate it. Status of Raj Farm project will be presented individually by plant module leaders from each plant team. Before we get started let me introduce new member added to Team Basil, basil plant! This new addition to the team is experienced and expected to provide a fillip to Team Basil. He has been there and done that. Welcome to Raj Farm project team, basil plant. Do you want to introduce yourself to this team and say Hi to the larger team, my man Basil?

Basil Plant: Thanks for the kind words, I look forward to interacting and growing with other teams and show the kind of progress this great team expects and is used to.

PM Raj: Thanks, we look forward to you being a valuable member of the plant team and guide the summerlong basil seeds along the way. Ok, Team Tomato module leader will be up first!

Team Tomato module leader: Good afternoon. I am speaking on my behalf of both the plants and once upon a time seeds. Team did great last week. We developed and grew together very well. Our team would like to thank our move to new office pots to accommodate our growth. As you can see we have started blooming! In few weeks we plan to add more color and you should see all the efforts bear fruit. I will let the humans decide whether you call us a vegetable or fruit. Humans are good at fighting over relatively insignificant things like nomenclature πŸ˜€

PM Raj: Thanks Team Tomato and good progress. Your point about human beings fighting over inane stuff is well taken πŸ™‚ Team Cucumber, your turn next!

Team Cucumber module leader: Hi All, out team has been been outstanding and beating expectations. This week was not different. We grew by leaps and bounds. When we deliver your thirst will be quenched for sure barring anything unexpected happening. I would like to point out we have been facing challenges from the RabMunks combine.

Customer: What are the RabMunks?

Team Cucumber module leader: Sorry, that’s our term for the voracious and rapacious team of rabbits and chipmunks. We would appreciate assistance to keep them at bay.

PM Raj: Thanks Cucumber team, we will put in a word with the RabMunks and try to convince them to eat delicious grass in the lawn instead. Will be useful in reducing maintenance work too πŸ˜‰ Team Pepper, your turn next!

Team Pepper module leader: Without a doubt we are the hottest team. This week the seed team showed growth and development across the board. It was a good week.

PM Raj: Thanks Pepper Team, Garlic/Chives/Oregano Team your turn now.

Garlic/Chives/Oregano Team: Our team is a low key team and we believe in building a strong base first. You don’t see much at this time but we promise that in a few weeks you will be impressed by our results.

PM Raj: Thanks Garlic/Chives/Oregano Team, we appreciate all the hard work under the soil. Final update from Team Basil

Team Basil module lead: Thanks PM Raj, you have reserved the best for the last πŸ˜‰ With addition of experienced Basil to our team things are looking good and lifted the team spirit

PM Raj: Thanks Basil, appreciate the improvement. Before we wrap up I would like to add couple of words. Some of the seed teams (cilantro, lavender, Summerlong basil) might have felt overwhelmed by excess soil over them. That is a lesson learned. Another lesson is starting early in spring if seeds are going to be used. Project status is Green this week too. Detailed status report will be sent separately

Thanks a lot, everyone. Have a great one before our next status call!
