10. Watching the vein in his temple throb in exasperation as he talked on the phone.

9. Fixing problems with his computer for him by rebooting.

8. Being asked hypothetical questions about things I have honestly never considered.

7. Having to settle arguments over pronunciation and meaning of words like pilfer.

6. Listening to Danny scream like a girl when someone startled him.

5. Finding out that your sales team spent three hours debating the cultural influences of the Dukes of Hazzard.

4. Having Danny’s grandmother call to make sure he was behaving.

3. Watching the dust accumulate on his company laptop.

2. Being able to set our watches by his arrivals at 8:05 and his departures at 3:55.

1. Not ever having to wonder what you will do with your leftovers from lunch.

RIP Danny.  You’ve gone on to that BIg Cubicle Across the River.  We wish you luck and want to give you one last piece of advice:

DON’T LET THEM CATCH YOU NAPPING!!!!!

As you can see, planting mums in the field is a very labor intensive process. After the cuttings get to the stage where they have a adequate root system, we yank them from their comfortable and sheltered life, cram them into pots of media and place them into the harsh, real world of the mum field.

Fortunately for plants and planters, the weather this week has been mild compared to past years. The temps have been in the 80s so far. We have planted when temperatures were in the upper 90s. Once it hits 100 or so, we take the rest of the day off. I call the whole process the "Parks Bros. Spa Tanning and Weight Loss Package."

We will not be publishing an availability anymore this season.  We still have product available, but we have stopped watering all but 2 greenhouses.  Most of what we sell from here on out will be to our customers who come out and pickup their orders.  On the delivery side, we took 6 orders this week and shipped in 4 different directions.  Due to the fuel prices that is not very economical.  If you do need some product, we have pretty much what we had last week just less of it so give us a call and we’ll see what we can do.

Here are some pictures of the girls pinching the mums. We try to leave 6 breaks (leaves) on every plant.

I’ve been posting moderately serious stuff for several months now. It’s time for some fun.
