Well, I suppose I finally took the plunge and am now legal to sell plants in the State of Texas. I got my tax number this morning.

My first attempt at selling plants/seedlings will be at First Monday Trade Days in Weatherford, Texas, 3/4 April 2009.

I am excited and scared at the same time...I just want to sell some pepper plants locally to get a feel for the business...

This being Texas they probably heard "hot peppers" and stamped his papers :P

Sobriety certainly is good, i try to save it for special occasions though.

the tax number was real hard to get...I had to go online, fill out the form, and got the license in about 10 minutes...


all kidding aside...if I had known it was going to be this easy, I would have gotten it two years ago...

and yes, its kinda like TCG said...roflmao

Maybe since you're selling Jolokias and such you should get an insurance policy lol. Half kidding and half serious.

I'm surprised they don't make you get a permit for those plants, kind of like the permits you have to have to own/handle a venomous snake.

They probably want to make sure they are BIG enough and HOT enough peppers.

Not a bad idea, and sell them with a disclaimer.

That's it, say goodbye to your precious bunnies....

exactly.

besides, anyone buying a bhut jolokia probably knows what it is. same with any other naga variety. nobody buys a habanero thinking it's a bell pepper, ya know?

Very cool AJ. If i was in Texas, i'd grab a few off ya and a case each of every Shiner available.

Great stuff AJ, it's a similar process hear in Australia. you can apply for your ABN (Australian Business Number) and your TFN (Tax File Number) online. Takes maybe 10 minutes to get your ABN and they send you your TFN in the mail.

Hope your venture takes off, I know if I was in Texas I'd buy your superhots.

Nice work AJ, I think you are doing what we all (or at least most of us) want to do. Good luck on it, although cant imagine you failing at this.
