Okay, so he has an addiction to garden gnomes. What can I say?
An amazing opportunity for growth has come my way -- I've gotten on with O'Toole's Garden Center in Littleton. There are a lot of reasons for wanting to do this: something to do, a little cash coming in, but, most importantly, it's the chance to learn from some of the best in the business.
I'll still continue with freelance, but there are a lot of open days in there when being out in the sunshine tripping over ornamental grasses will just make me happy.
Colorado has wide variations in soil and growing conditions and I'm looking to learn as much about them as I can. And, while I have been focusing on veggies for the past few years, I'm getting a chance to further develop our bee and butterfly garden by working in perennials.
So, I'll start at O'Toole's sometime in the next week or so, but I basically can't wait.
Stop by, say 'hi' and buy some Purple Coneflower.
