Goodbye Heronswood
Andrea Bellamy |


Goddamn it. The bastards have closed Heronswood.

Corporate-giant Burpee has closed the beloved Northwest-Washington nursery after purchasing it six years ago. Burpee’s president George Ball says, “We tried for six years and it just wasn’t profitable.” I’m sorry, but how did Dan Hinkley manage for the first 14 years while sliding deeper and deeper into debt? I mean, it wasn’t profitable! This makes me so sad, and more than a little angry. What is profit? Making $100? $100,000? $100,000,000?

Thanks to Amy for the heads up, and the fantastic post. I’m too pissed off right now to say any more without the further use of inappropriate expletives. Besides, Amy pretty much says it all.
