I have been gradually getting ready for next spring. I have all the ferns started, this week I had almost 300 fancy elephant ears come in from Florida from a new supplier. I worked quite a few early mornings last month getting all the patented plugs ordered for March. This month I try to get seeds ordered. I turned 70 last May, when the Bible says the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak, I get that totally.
On a good day it takes 12 hours to get 8 hours of work done. I am glad I have others help in the spring. One of my youthful fantasies was to only sell what I could produce at this stage of life, the reality is if I did I would not be open very long until it was all gone.
I have been blessed with good help, fairly good health, and a ton of good loyal customers, so next year will be pedal to the metal again. I am not a fan of winter, I think bears have the right idea, hole up and sleep! See you all in the spring, if I don't oversleep.
