    Everyone's phones starting to ring?

    This is the time of year when I get excited and nervous. Excited about getting into the season, nervous that all the things I wanted to change with the business won't get done before the season starts.

    Is everyone else starting to gear up for the season?

    The phone isn't ringing off the hook yet . But i'm getting things together for a big regional garden show . My show garden is "spring fever" i'm building a greenhouse-storage building , arbor with red tin roof,and split rail fence. this is the second year for me. I like doing this, talk about people knowing who you are, i find myself doing jobs from this show all year long. I show up at the clients house and they have my flier from the show in hand. I'm also polishing equipment for the show.

    In the last two weeks I have bid over 100 properties...The high number is because I bid on an entire subdivision-110 homes..That includes all the landscaping and mowing...If I get them, I'll have to start another crew or maybe two...I love this time of year...Derrick
