It's going to take a couple of gardeners at least.
Do you have any problem with gardeners there?
Yes, I have a problem with the one I have.
Because you had problems up in Amenia.
Yes, I haven't got this solved at all, but at any rate,
you don't know a great gardener?
Last year you were talking in high terms about a man named Michael,
I think. Is he there?
Yes, he's still there, but he doesn't remember what I ask
him to do. If I ask him to do something this week, it won't be done
next week or the week after.
Why don't you try giving it to him in writing?
I did. He doesn't even look at it. You have my theory
exactly: that if you write it down, anybody can do it. If you put
it in writing, there's no discussion about whether they knew or not.
If you state it simply, yes.
