Last week I did the tillin in my gardens, they are 2 raised 22 x 4 beds. Today I am headed out to get the stuff for the veggies and herbs.
I am going to get 3 romas, 3 beaf steaks (only because I love to go out and pluck one off and eat it right then and there). red peppers, jalepenos, then the rest will be seeds, I am moving things as I always do.
Just got to wait for a phone call then I am outta here,
[Wink] it's a happy day when I can get out and do some serious plants.

[tears] i sit here at my job everyday reading what everyone else is doing in their gardens and i get sad thinking "HEY i could be doing that today" instead of sitting in an empty customer-less store [Eek!] [tears] [Mad]
but hey the 28th is my last day at this job so hopefully my greenhouse will arrive (been waiting 2 months,backorder [Mad] ) by then and i'll be a gardening maniac [grin] [grin] until then i will live vicariously thru everyone here [Big Grin]

my brother lives in your neck of the woods. He goes nuts when I start talkin aobut what I have planted,lol. I feel for ya, I do. He grows a much bigger garden than I do in New Hampshire.
One more load of laundry to go out on the line then I am gone to the plant store,lol.
Supposed to rain again starting tomorrow so I want to get the started plants in and the seeds to.
You'll have to let me know how the green house goes, I have been thinking of getting one.

Thats a good idea, I am thinkin of doing something similar with the extra herbs in the fall. I have family whom I keep stocked with dried kitchen herbs and then a whole ton of them left over. You just might be on to something with that idea.

well i think that since gardening brings me such peace of mind that if i can help other's (or ,well.. introduce them to gardening) that maybe i can give them peace of mind. that would be the greatest reward [thumb]
and a little cash here and there wouldn't be too bad either [Wink]

yes it certainly does. I have my own business I work out of my house. I should say we have our own business,lol.
My gardens keep me from losing it completely. I live to do this, it is good for body and soul 100%.
ok, I am off now to the plant place. I'll be back,lol.

Phoenix,

I know you already know this but...

Business license and sales tax. Here in Virginia both are very easy to do. Some states like Washington State it is a nightmare. But it's better to do than not to do.

hey tk,
so you're telling me i need to sort of "register"?
i can't do an "under the table" thing [Big Grin]
it's very easy in massachusetts too (i think it still is [scaredy] )
i've already had friends and neighbors say they would buy plants from seeing my "work" last summer.
one neighbor asked if i would sort of "teach" a group of her and some friends on gardening [thumb] so i might end up doing thst too [grin]

Um,

let me put it this way do you have a problem with pot holes in the road? Public areas that don't get mowed the way they should? Street clearing during snows?

That's why I pay my taxes. Not more than I owe not less. But I pay my share.
