Re: Update on A Touch

I like Bootless Wonder! Had some friends who used to ski and they always
tore their knees up. I need mine so I avoided that pasttime.

Hi folks

Well another selling season is fast approaching.  I haven't said much in the
last few months because I've been working 7 days a week during the offseason
putting another greenhouse together.  I'll send a pic or two in the next
couple of days.  Anyway this one is the fourth greenhouse and it's about 5,000
sq ft. with bottom heating, automatic humidity and temp controls and
fertigation system.  It took three months to put the whole thing together.
What a bear!  Remind me not to do that again.

However, it seems our plants are going foreign.  I have contracts now for
exporting to the Marshall Islands, England and Russia if you can believe that.
Our first order for the Marshall Islands of 200 plants go out in a couple of
weeks.  We're currently gathering orders from Russian contacts and hopefully
they will go in April.  So, things are moving right along.

I could have chosen an easier plant to raise.  They do present constant
challenges but with those flowers they are worth it.  I think by late spring
we'll be up to 70 different varieties.

Lastly I would appreciate it in the future if you all would use the proper
honorific when addressing me.  I'm the U.S. Representative to the
International Hibiscus Society.  You can call me Your Honor, or Mr.
Representative, or The Bootless Wonder!
