    My nephew is going on his 4th season landscaping. This spring he is picking up new clients left and right. It is all lawn mowing and shrub trimming. He even hires friends when he needs extra help. Most of my garden tools have run away from home, but it is worth it. Nephew used to be very lazy rolling out of bed around noon. Now I get tx from him 7am he is on the road. If only I could teach him to wipe his feet before entering my house.​

    That's great! I'm glad he's found himself a business niche that is working well for him. You've been a good example of a hard worker.

    If he learns more about different turfgrass and weeds and how to identify by name the plants he's taking care of he will be ahead of many out there doing the same thing.

    Wow, he has reall changed! The more experience he gets and the more his business grows, the more he will change for the better. He is becoming so responsible. I think one day he will return your tools even though that is not important to you.

    Some don't have any brains until 40......LOL

    That is wonderful about your nephew. You threw him a lifeline, gave guidance, but most of all, you gave him love.

    How old is his baby now?
