Re: head count

Donna et al
My business is not open to the public and I  do not do mailorder.(Gene and 
David..I so admire your success in this field!) Would hate for anyone to see my 
gardens most weeks! My partner and I live on 12 acres of reclaimed farmland 
and woods. We even have a river running thru it. It is truly an oasis in the 
middle of mega flatland farms growing corn and soybeans. Most of the old farmland 
is now more or less "natural" having been seeded by conservation dept. people 
with big and little bluestem, switch grass and some liatris and butterfly 
weed and other native forbes. As a consequence I am always fighting a myriad of 
weed seed in the gardens. My "living" consists of ordering stock and overseeing 
plant sales at the local hardware store April- July and again for 6 weeks in 
the fall for mum sales. In exchange for this I get to sell my perennials at 
this location and pocket all the proceeds. They pay me for what I sell of my 
pots but it all goes thru their registers so I don't collect the sales tax and 
don't have to pay overhead. Also this puts me in contact (and seems to give me 
some kind of credibility) with people who might be interested in my landscaping 
services.And of course this is another place to use my plants. I do the 
design and installation and in some cases maintenance. Love this part as it is very 
creative but is hard on the old bod'. Then my most favorite part is selling 
cut flowers by subscription. Most of my customers right now are businesses some 
of whom want them already arranged so that is fun, too. Perhaps this is more 
than you really want to know..but I do find it interesting to hear how others 
get along in this world. Thanks for the description Jim.
I too am a holdover from AHS days  Thank you Chris Lindsey! Kathy z5 IL
p.s. Jesse, Love the goat pics on splitrockboers. I want one! Thought of you 
and Pam when I went to visit my daughter in Austin last Oct.
