Thanks, rB.

If I ever do something like this, that will likely be the way I go about it.

So, disuhan, are you still there? I can imagine that this is a bit overwhelming. I still love your idea, and I hope you are able to make a go at it if that is what you decide.

Yes I am still here and I am quite overwhelmed. But I am also closing on a house this week and in New York packing/going insane. I will gather my thoughts and reply in detail next week.

I didn't mean to sound ungrateful. I am wowed by the responses with so much great info. It's put a lot of crazy thoughts in my head (in addition to those house stuff)!

Wow! You have a LOT on your plate right now. Moving is way up there as one of the most stressful experiences. Hang in there, focus on what you need to do.

Hopefully, once things settle down, you will be able to focus more clearly on what you want to do in the way of a native plant nursery. It does sound like a lot to deal with, but perhaps, breaking it down into smaller "do-able" tasks will get you there. Also, perhaps you could start out doing some facet of what you dream of...and work your way up to a full-fledged nursery--or discover that that one facet is enough for you. Hang in there.

No rush for response. Take care.

I didn't think you sounded ungrateful at all...I just kept thinking how overwhelming this sounded to me...and I was wondering how you were taking it.

~smile~ That is sweet.

I agree...I hope she can really make a go of it.

As for me, I'm thinking more along the lines of growing plugs--some day.
