Re: head count


Kathy,
that sounds like a wonderful arrangement.  Bet you can get a lot more done
without a bunch of pesky customers rooting around your nursery.  Cut flowers
by subscription?  That sounds interesting.  What does that entail?  Weekly
delivery of flowers to reasonably close locations?  To homes or businesses?
What sorts of flowers?

Kitty
