    My wife works with me almost every day we work. She can operate the mowers, weed-eaters, and blowers as good as I can. She enjoys working outdoors and doesn't mind the hard work. She also does 99% of the flower and shrub planting for our clients. The only time it bothers her is when it is 90+ outside and high humidity, then her asthma gives her trouble. Several years ago when I was working 3rd shift as well as the business, she practically ran the business with a couple part-time workers with the exception of the paper work. Guess I got lucky somehow.

    By the way, she can even back up the truck and trailer without jackknifing it. Does a good job at it too.

    My wife helps me about once a week. She is a teacher so she has the whole summer off. She loves to mow and work on her tan. She probably won't help me to much this year, just found out she is pregnant with our first child. I'll let her slack this year.:blob3:
