I need a high crop tractor.

I have the land, the good topsoil, 5 greenhouses, 2 tractors, two many large rocks, a half finished pond, and even an elf to pull weeds. (She is great by the way).

No, we were real fortunate to hire a girl to work for us. She has a BS in horticulture from U of MN.
Loves working in the garden & with the plants. I'm even keeping her busy enough this winter so she will be with us next summer. I'm going to put her in charge of some of the growing areas to free us up a little.

Bertha just made the second batch of fudge yesterday, so we are good for a few days. Lots of cookies also.
Merry Christmas!

I said a greenhouse. I do have one, but it's badly in need of repair. The roof leaks so bad on one end that it's like the roof isn't even there. Luckily, we haven't had cold weather yet, so I haven't needed to put tender plants in there. In its current sate, it certainly isn't going to hold a lot of heat!

Pots! and more pots!
My gopher problems are never ending, it's just so much easier to pot those expensive specialty plants than to try to protect them with underground wire cages.

Don't like compost; got enough big rocks underground; topsoil is a nightmare but too much needed to change, so forget it; my favourite plant is the one which blooms the nicest at that particular time, so I'm always happy; greenhouses mean too much work; got a tractor mower, that's enough; no ponds, SheWhoMustBeObeyed gets seasick just looking at a bowl of water; I WANT AN ELF, I WANT AN ELF!

Sugarweed: I want a real one, a pretty little elf lady who will weed the garden and other special chores like making tea and scones, cooking a real Scottish breakfast, and washing my car.

Bliss! ;-)

Jo: Thank you, and I wish you health and happiness too.

If I don't wake up, at least I won't know about it. :-)

Barry,
I have a elf like that. Hasn't made tea, but did bring a nice plate of cookies for Christmas.
Good to hear from you. I miss your stories in the jokes forum.

I voted other; I wanted a Christmas miracle where all of us could come together one magical day to eat scones and drink tea and talk about our gardens and ponds and our home countries (countries, states , cities, whatever). Oh, and bring picture albums galore. Maybe next year.

The reindeer left lights to roll up ...AND
Snow to "shovel " it could have been worse HO...HO...HO...
