Re: Uh Hi!
Welcome back, David!
Sorry about the business, but when it's too much work, and not much fun,
it's time. I decided when I was about 50 that doing it all wasn't an option.
I still loved the retail end, so worked during the season selling and
designing on the spot.
When my knees gave out, I started growing again, but mostly 4" annuals and
gallon tomatoes, plus some unusual perennials. I don't think I'll do
anything this year with the drought, though I renewed my license.
I've thought about selling tomato transplants on EBay, but I've never sold
anything there before. It's a big investment in growing supplies for
somebody who knows diddly about the on-line selling process.

Subject: [CHAT] Uh Hi!
Well it's been a long time hasn't it? It's like old home week when I got
home today and saw all of these emails from folks I have always cared
for so much. Almost like going back in time. I want to say hello to
everybody on the list and I have missed all of you.
I did close down my business this year after 8 years because the rising
cost of energy was just making it so it wasn't worth it anymore. We sold
out every year but without a lot of money to increase our size I was
working about 3 months for the energy companies. Besides I have to tell
you that I am tired...so was Linda. I ain't as young as I used to be. We
did good though! It was a great ride and we have appreciative customers
all over the world. Pretty amazing. Now if anybody so much as whispers
hibiscus I'll have to kick them in the shin! Just kidding Cathy, I'm
happy to answer anybodies questions to the best of my ability. I still
bow to the greater knowledge that is present on this list.
So, howdy! Hope you are all well.
