The major problem we have with our babysitter program is that we have not been getting good return for the fans at auction. We typically pay over $100 for a double fan. After the plant is divided and grower gets their fan, HADS seldom receives the purchase price. We, Sharon and I, would like to see the program be self-sustaining. We do not like to take money out of the treasury to buy new plants if we can avoid it.
