Well, today brought a first: an order for 2000 semps. Yep, a 2 with 3 zeros after it. Amazing! Some I can only manage 20 rosettes of and others I can manage 50 clumps. Expect it to be a packaging nightmare - more or less 60 different named varieties and a few noIDs. I have no idea how I'm going to bill this out - but it will open up some new spaces to put in MORE (and different) semps

Wow, you must be overwhelmed. I can't imaging the effort that is going to take to harvest, clean, dry, pack and ship.

Yes, the work involved is daunting and is making it difficult for me to figure out how to price it. They are going to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for a wall project. Thanks for all the well-wishes.
