Yeah but after 20-30 years of retirement I reckon I'll be ready for a good long sleep.

Actually been wearing a back brace. Delivered over 20,000 plants in the last couple of days and I'm feeling it.

Well I am only a year behind GN but I still feel like I am twenty.

Not ready to even think about slowing down yet.

I do get a bit of back ache usually after planting out 3000 plants in a day or so other than that Im good.

Planting 3000 plants? Presumably that is what you do for a living, snowdude?

I may be old but I reckon I could beat you young whippersnappers down the hill - now just hang on a minute while I sort this ratchet / clamp thingy on my boot. :grandpa:

A friend of mine in Niseko runs an organic farm through the warmer months. It doesn't make all that much money but he enjoys it.
