My gardening business is taking off! Oh my goodness! I'm tired, and feel like I barely have time to breathe. It's a good thing Sunday is Mother's Day. Otherwise, I'd be working 7 days this week. Working three days a week at the nursery, two days with a fellow gardener, and evenings and weekends for my own clients means something's going to have to give, and soon. I've committed to the gardener I'm working with to keep up the schedule for the next two weeks. After that, I'll need to cut down my hours with her so I can focus on my own clients and get some rest.
So please forgive me if my posting and blog-reading gets behind. Besides my own garden, blogging will probably be a bit neglected in the next few weeks.
I'm wondering when I'll ever find the time to plant my seedlings, or bring out the containers I overwintered, let alone add fresh plants to them or plant the empty ones. Or start that new bed in the back of the yard where DH gave up a little piece of prime lawn real estate for me to plant. Or work on the front landscape project. (Oh yeah, I haven't had time to post about that, so you probably didn't even know about it.)It's looking less and less likely this will get done this year.
I guess I'm about to be like the plumber whose pipes leak - I'll be the gardener with the neglected garden, too busy caring for other people's gardens to take care of my own. Be careful what you ask for. . .
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I'm very happy the business is growing. It's confidence-building and confirms what I've been told about the demand for gardeners in this area. The demand is definitely greater than the supply. Even in a weak economy, this gardener's business is blooming.
