    Going Out Of Business

    After 10 yrs of running a small wholesale nursery in N Cal, I am going out of business It is about time I start to enjoy my retirement
    My daughter and her boyfriend are taking over the local and some of the out of state accounts
    They have changed the name from Raccoon Ridge Nursery to MRodditys they have moved half the plants off the property my collection is intact. I will continue to do trades and giveaways.
    Aww to be an extreme hobbyist again. what a wonderful feeling.
    Lois

    I second kula's sentiments - as someone just beginning my career, I'm envious. Enjoy yourself, you've earned it.
