good news, re. garden job

Postby Linda B » Apr 17, 2008 1:19 pm

So excited.... I accepted a seasonal job with City of Toronto as a gardener. Will be planting at the various city parks and such. Tried last year for job and got nothing. It's for 6 months, starting April 30 :D :D

But means I can't log on much to this Forum (for I don't have home computer :shock: True ! And don't want one either for work on computers at current job).

Happy Days.

Yes, it is a great way to spend the summer. Out of doors, lots of exercise, and nice flowers. You'll be in tip top shape come fall.

OMG! Lulu! That's an amazing haul!
I've always wondered why the city doesn't do more perennial plantings. They must spend a fortune on annuals every year.

Thanks everyone !

Lulu:
Thanks for the tip... I'll definitely inquire about this dumping in the fall. I'm into getting freebies (and sharing) :)
