Review season is in the air again here on the farm. That's right, this month kicks of the 2019 Schoolhouse Review Crew year!

Like last year, I'm going to try to do an end of the month post to talk about what reviews are coming up the next months. This is because I typically have products to review for a 6-8 week time period. I also do it, so you know what to be watching for!
