Re: Hibs

Thanks Marge and everybody else who wrote.  It's been such a steep climb
up the learning curve that I've had several nose bleeds.  Funny, the
biggest problem has been the need for more and more room.  I think I'll
put a cap on the 10k sq ft. and call that good.  I should be able to
handle most of the growing myself with maybe just one full time person
besides me and then temporary help when needed.  Any bigger than that and
it's not as fun.  I grow em for their beauty and the smile they put on
people's faces not the big bucks.

Andrea, when you're ready go out and look for greenhouses.  Cold call on
people that you know have gh's.  Drive around and when you see some stop
and talk with the owners.  Sooner or later you'll find somebody who isn't
using their's to the fullest and maybe just maybe you'll find somebody
who is interested in giving a grower a hand.
