    During the spring and summer we'll employ about 15-17 employees. Probably more in 2007. Right now, in the dead of winter, we have 9 of us still working.

    We have 10 right now and but several of our college students will be back around the 10th on january so we will be back to 14. During the summer we get up to 20 or so full timers, we have a fairly high turn over rate in this type of work.

    Down to 5 employees in the field and one full time subcontractor doing a route. Over the summer it was 10 in the field and the subcontractor.

    ME, myself, my shadow, & I. Did I mention myself?

    All aside - from mid march to dec of this year at least (no snow) we kept about 4-5 people busy. Now down to me and one other.

    Sometimes when people ask me this question - I say half of them! Cuz sometimes it just feels that way. So much to do in little time.
