Whats Green? Green is the smell of dirt, and growth, and sunshine, that's what green is. Its the beginning of winter, and even though I hadn't been looking to go back into the plant business. Plants just sorta find me. Green seems to sprout wherever I go. The first time round in Missouri I grew roses, and trees, and built a greenhouse to house a winter garden, In January I was harvesting bright red ground grown tomatoes. In arkansas I grew roses, and trees. In florida I grew Plumerias and bananas, and passion flower, and jasmine, and now again in Missouri the plants have found me yet again. Do you think they are trying to tell me something? My plumeria trees are doing nicely beneath the grow light , the banana tree seems to be doing well in the living room, as are the spider plants and the 6 Ferns growing on the clothes rack in the spare bedroom, and the Cannas are looking peaked, but still alive right beside them.
This morning while convalescing from a stomach bug, I applied for a job with a local green house. A week ago or so a family that my spouse had sold some wood too needed some help with some planted pots. We emptied them and I came home with Pampas grass, butterfly bushes, some Ivy and other growing vines, and 8 boston ferns 6 of which I still have. All of that and I knew I had to buy a grow light. The nice family jumped on the idea of having me repot for them in the spring.
So once again I am in the Plant business. Green House Tropicals, my new business has its own website, and blog page. Business cards are being handed out. Now all we wait for is spring.
