Based upon Murf's suggestion to an issue I asked on before am looking carefully at raising Nursery Stock. Based upon the area I am in are looking to raise Live Oak, Crepe Myrtle and Holley Trees. OK EW here is your golden opportunity: I admit I need help with this and am asking for all suggestions from where to find seedings up. It will be a part time business but may grow (trust it all grows) into full time business. Thanks in advance. kt

Kenny, I'm assuming things are similar down there as we have up here. The Government has it's own seedling nurseries.

Sorry I didn't have time to peruse the page linked to below much, but I know up here I can, and do, even get the Government to ship them to me and send out a bus load of college & university kids to plant them. They hire them under 'make work' programs and then hire them out to do the planting.

Best of luck.

Some states provide seedlings free or at nominal cost to landowners willing to plant them. The species are deemed suitable for reforestation, so would not include ornamentals, shrubs, and those needing close early care. They're typically up to a foot high and in bundles of 25, with a minimum order for scheduled pickup.

There are various names for the state agencies that do this, so you might have to search to see if yours has such a program. An applicant who discloses being a commercial nursery or nursery-to-be might not be eligible.

Some nurseries have their own seedling operations, for sale wholesale and/or only for their own retailing. Then there are a few seedling growers (some in Central America) that just supply nurseries.

We have to pay the state for the seedlngs here, but they're pretty cheap. The ones we got came in bundles of like 25 or so. The soil conservation service used to have a tree planter for rent too. I never rented it myself but neighbors did and said it worked quite well.

Kenny, are you asking me to run your operation?

Lemme pack m' bags--it's in the low 20's lately. Oh, in light of the recentt Congressional action in the news, will there be a Union there? I can't work for peanuts.

Ole Jeff if you only knew. Very good money in peanuts. Not sure about the kind some of you eat but in green peanuts good money. For boiled peanuts you did them green and do not dry them out. At first of season they are like $45 per bushel but as season goes on drops to about $25 or $30. Green peanuts are very time senstive in harvesting and storage as they will spoil quicker than your Mama did you and worst. FYI I did raise green peanuts for a few years. Did I mention time is very tight on them? It would seem a good part time business, not so. It is a seasonal business. When you did them a clock begins on how long before they are either in refrigeration on in the boiling water. Sold digger and combine last year. Sure am glad you guys like them dry. Not near enough boiled ones for me! Sold peanut digger to a gentleman who daughter quit as a Registered Nurse to sell boiled peanuts on side of road.

20 degrees, it was here also, in the freezer!!! Sorry. We have had more cold and colder weather than our average this fall. Where or where is Al Gore when needed?

So Jeff, you are 1 1/2 years late on them peanuts. But we could have made money. Then not sure how many locals would buy boiled peanuts from someone who talks funny. Smile

Today was 17 degrees. HEAT WAVE!

Believe it or not I love southern food/Nawlins (New Orleans) or at least the stuff I tried which has French roots. I just could not stomach/smell something that looked like what floats in my septic tank. e-e-e-wwww!

Talk funny. That's a hoot. Ahhh yes the Land of no Rules where anything goes.

Oh yeah, and they wouldn't buy from me 'cause I wash my hands before I touch my food or other's. tehehehe

(we don' need no stinkin' "hy-gene" down he-ah----eat up boy!)

But I'm jis' sayin'

I gotta go take a shower now---I feel sooooo dirty.


Kenny did you ever get that mound of a half-million yards of dirt moved? I'm not doing anything right now...

EW, that is why the HOT SAUCE. Did you not know that?

Back to working on that mound. Only need to move about 3 to 6 thousand yards so not that big of job. Thinking on little red wagon.

Son in law did get I think a fair price to move it and level of $3 per yard. That was when business was not as slow as now. Have reverted to my first plan, small dump truck and time.
