BIG PINEY, WY—Winter in Wyoming comes early and stays late.
Fall usually starts in late August and Winter keeps plants dormant until late May or early June.
But that hasn't stopped Sharon Moreno from running a very successful home-based business selling plants.
"I've always had an interest in a home-based business", says Moreno. "I've done various things over the years to bring in income."
"My husband has worked in the oil and gas industry for the last 20 years. Since the downturn in oil we've been struggling to make ends meet."
"I have, for the most part, always been a stay at home wife/mother."
"I love growing and caring for plants. I'm always looking ahead to the next day and what it holds in store for my little business."
And boy did she knock it outta the park! Her first sales actually came from a strategy I refer to as "Wholesaling Plants".
Sharon bought a box of 1,500 bare root strawberry plants from one of the wholesale sources I recommend in my Backyard Growing System
She took them out of the box, divided them up into smaller bundles of 15 plants each, listed those bundles for sale online, and sold them all from the comfort of her own home.
