I may still be young at heart....but I'm still too old to be starting a business! Hubby and I are actually starting to think about retirement. It's a few years off yet, but we can at least start to think about it. My kids like to say that I only"play the OLD card" when it suits my purposes

It's not out of the question that I may try to sell some of my overstock plants at the small garden center where I work. I'd have to work out the details of tagging and price and such. And, of course, okay it all with the store owner (who knows NOTHING about plants of any kind).

It makes me think of what someone told me when we first moved here, it was almost the Hippocratic Oath, "first do no harm" watch the land before you do anything. That's not much different than what gardeners say about waiting a year before putting a shovel to the ground on a new property.
I told my new neighbors something VERY similar when they moved in next to us. Let it be until you see what each species is capable of doing or producing before chopping it out or down. MOST stayed!
