Everything in the greenhouse is dead. The expensive propane heater we put in the greenhouse quit in us in the middle of the night and there was no place open to return it to and get a new one. Even Walmart was out. The little electric heater we had been using wasn't powerful enough and my hundreds of dollars in Tropical Hibiscus plants froze to death. I won't be buying anymore until I have a house with a solarium on it. I don't consider the greenhouse a loss because I can still use it as a 3 season greenhouse for vegetables. I can never get enough of garden fresh vegetables.
The seed stores are busy busy busy of course. I made 1200 dollars on gross sales last Saturday and I barely get a chance to breath. I make a conscious effort not to get stressed out but there's not much I can do about subconsciously being stressed out. Yesterday was I'm working packaging seeds I feel the first of an irregular heartbeat. It continued in short bursts throughout the day making my stress levels worse than they already are and ending in an upset stomach in the evening and a lot of time spent on the toilet. I lost hours of work to it. This has driven home something I already knew about the stores and its that I can't continue them simply because I won't be able to continue to handle the stress of "spring rush".
I did originally open them so I could work at home and have more time to write. I in fact have less time to write. So
my goal for off season is to write 12 books. I don't know if its a realistic goal but its what I'm going to shoot for. For now though its back to work.
