>Now that was a mistake…. -#997


 Open Gardens Day in Gonsenheim last week and Stein’s Herb Nursery had all sorts of activities for littlies, one of which attracted some…er…not so little littlies.

For example: the potting mixture machine, the German word for which has 247 letters, very few of them vowels (but lots of them umlauts).

Stack the pots in a magazine, fill the hopper with potting mix, switch it on, watch it fill, tamp and pre-drill the content and then press-gang the attending kids into retrieving the pots from the conveyor belt and putting them in trays.

“What happens if we can’t keep up” asked one.

“Oh, they just fall off the end of the belt into the bin” she said carelessly ” Then we just re-use them”

Big mistake.

All of a sudden, no-one could keep up.

There was even active assistance in relocating pots from the belt to the bin.
