I may try the route of ordering them in the winter, that way I can be assured of having enough flats of healthy flowers ready for us whenever we're ready.

I think I'm probably part of the problem, as I only give them a week or so notice to pick up 40 or 50 flats at a time.

If you are willing to travel to the east side, there are many growers out here who don't even flinch at 40-50 flats. These guys supply a lot of the smaller garden shops, along with Eastern Market.

I was in a Ford F350 Stake Truck. that was the difference. The stake truck classified me as "A Truck" so I was prohibited down that road. I pulled into the subdivision I was working in but apparently you have exactly 1 mile before you have to turn off or turn around. I decided to go into the second entrance of the sub instead of the first because I didnt want to drive all the way around inside the sub.
Watch out for the Novi SUV Cop on Wixom Rd. Between Grand River and !0 Mile. He's looking for us.

Yes, it's obviously ALL about safety.

Prohibited Vehicle? I probably would have ended up in jail for something along these lines: "Officer, I thought this was a free country? How can you prohibit free travel?"

I'm sure it would go downhill fast from there.

Hidden talents, I have been pulled over for the same thing. You can't cross over 11 mile road if you are on Wixom rd. It is B.S., there is no reason for it.
