Sorry, no-can-do per our business accountant. We regret that we can’t give away our product. I know that other people do this, and I wish them well.

Actually, I love iris so much that I’d prefer to give them all away. But the problem is that when I go to the store for a gallon of milk, I get treated just like the next guy …. the cashier expects to get paid.

Our business accountant pointed out that, on average, it’s easy to spend hundreds of hours developing a new, high-quality iris …and that time has to be economically productive. I guess that I could just fire the accountant. But for the time being, I’ll restrict my gift giving to Christmas and Birthdays.
