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.
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!
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!
