Re: Starting a nursery

No kidding.  My favorite job ever was when I worked at a nursery.  I 
could have watered and planted plants while listening to the radio or 
chatting with co-workers forever.  I loved that job- but couldn't 
possibly live off of the paycheck.  (I was great while I was working on 
my dissertation though!  Lots of thinking time!)
