So the lovefest between GardenRant and Old House Gardens continues this month as they give us a shout-out in their entertaining and highly informative e-mail newsletter. Thanks,guys. I’m not overselling the e-mail newsletter, either–I open this baby the minute it arrives and often end up ordering some tantalizing treat from it. Subscribe here if you don’t already.
And: it is very heartening for them to note in the latest newsletter that:
Our customers bought more bulbs from us this fall than ever before, despite the daunting economic turmoil. And many of you included cheery, encouraging notes with your orders. I can’t begin to tell you how much that means to all of us here.
Heirloom bulbs are never going to get a billion-dollar bailout, and you probably won’t either. But by supporting one another, working hard, and using our good old American ingenuity, I believe we can all find our way to brighter days again.
When I sit down at the table with my family and friends this Thanksgiving, you can be sure I’ll be thinking of you.
But. But. This is the news you’re going to need to be sitting down for.
Old House Gardens is hiring a Vice-President of Bulbs. That’s right, your job would be to ORDER AND PLANT BULBS FOR A LIVING! I know, you are already experiencing the symptoms: dry mouth, tremors, and a sudden willingness to move to Ann Arbor, MI. I’m feeling it myself.
The application process looks like it’s a little easier than applying for a job with the Obama adminstration, but no less exciting and no less integral to our mission of hope and change.
So. Are you applying? PLEASE tell us about it! Let us live vicariously through you! And consider this an open invitation to the successful candidate–come over here for a guest rant and let us know what your first week in office is like.
