Tuesday found me working in the garden shop again. I absolutely love working in the garden shop. It’s pretty autonomous back there, with not much politics and an opportunity to just get the job done. I put out freight and I water plants and when there are no customers I sing. It’s the one place in the store (aside from the pharmacy, which we control right there in it) where they keep the air conditioning on in the summer, so that’s a real nice perk, too.
I really enjoy learning about the different plants. There’s a great big Ortho book back there, over 1200 pages with information on different flowers, shrubs and trees as well as the pest and diseases that weaken or kill them. When I am not actually working, I get to study.
