Would you do something different if you had the means to?
I enjoyed Glenda's career post last night. I know some of you are retired but for those that aren't, would you continue doing what you're doing or work at something else if you could? If I had the means I would quit my job and buy a couple acres of land off the main road in our town and open a market garden. Build a small home at the back of the land and grow fruits, flowers and vegetables to sell. Maybe grill some vegetables and meat for sale during the day. Have tables for people to eat in a garden setting. Have a small greenhouse on site to start plants and maybe sell some varieties of flowers and vegetable plants not offered in the other stores/nurseries. I noticed most places here sell the same flowers and tomato plants. No variety at all. I would need to hire help. I'm heading towards 60, so the odds that this is ever going to happen is pretty slim. I can still dream, right?
