This winter should be like last year and will continue to do small installs and heavy pruning when the weather cooperates. I will be sleeping and working on my house the days its too cold out.

Our growing seasons goes a few months longer than some of your, but still does not generate the same income as it does during growing season.
Put 29 years in the Navy and this is my first endeavour as a business owner since getting off the Active Duty payroll list and onto the Retired/Disabled payroll list.
Any of you from Florida, or the Southeast in general, willing to share some of your off-season money making ideas with me?
Appreciate anything legal, moral, and ethical that I can do while waiting for the season to start back up next Spring.

Thanks in Advance -- Bill

The Postal Service hires a lot of people during December. It's a great way to bridge the income gap.

What happens to those workers after the Christmas rush...? I suspect the same thing that happens to seasonal hires after Xmas is over....
