Creative Story: Mischels Greenhouse

While working at the brand new Mischels Greenhouse I found out it was different

from any other job I ever had. It was one of the most responsible jobs so far

of my life. Four thousand lives were almost totally in my exchange sisters,

Tanya, and my hands. By us watering them daily. Because it was so hot out-side,

the greenhouse was stifling. Watering mums was a very tedious job be-cause it

was repetitious. I started daily at 9 A.M. my whole day consisted of taking

care of Forty thousand mums. They sat on top of many benchtops collecting sun

and, heat rays waiting for us to water them. After watering them, John, (My

boss), would go behind me and pull flowers. Which means picking out the best

plants. Then Tanya and I would pick them up and put them on a rack 5x5 and then

shrink wrap them. Shrink-wrapping was mainly my job throughout the day. I

would load an 8 foot tall rack then I would wrap the rack full of mums so the

mums would not fall off. Then I would take the palette jack and pick up therack,

and load it into the Ford truck. Loading is hard because I have to make sure

they go all the way to the back and to the side of the truck. It can't be one

inch off otherwise it could hurt the plants (They could rub together) and the

racks wouldn't fit side by side. It's a endless cycle, day after day, until

all the mums are gone. When the mums are all gone, it's a glorious feel of

relief. All the benches had to be cleaned to get ready for poinsettias. Tanya

went back to Belarus to live with her real family so I asked my friends if any

of them wanted to help and only one said yes. I told my boss and a week later

my friend was working with me It was my job to "show him the ropes" with the

poinsettias. After he got the hang of things it was smooth sailing, to load

poinsetias. We did everything the same as the mums except we put eight plants in

a cardboard box. Then loaded the truck box by box. The old Ford could hold

nineteen hundred twenty plants which is a lot of work when we had to load each

plant one by one. All the poinsetias are gone now, so we start with geraniums

again. I have no idea how to start those. When I started working at Mischels

Greenhouse, The geraniums were already grown. I guess I will learn all over

again. I wonder if Tanya will be back to help me. But that's another story...
