MOST REWARDING ASPECT OF GROWING
My history as an outdoor farmer forces me to greatly appreciate the greenhouse setting. I spent most of my life working on the fields harvesting blueberry and strawberry in the summer, and broccoli and brussel sprouts in the fall and winter. There’s nothing like walking into a warm, clean greenhouse every morning, surrounded by the sweet smell of bell peppers. This is the feeling I get every time I go to work, despite what season it is outside. In the greenhouse I know exactly what temperature it will be as soon as I walk in!
At the end of the day, its seeing the perfect product that truly makes it all worth it. The perfect shape, bright red colour, and indescribable sweet taste is what I love most. I love taking home the perfect pepper, showing it to my little girl, and watching the smile on her face as she eats it.
WHEN NOT IN MY GREENHOUSE, I ENJOY
Although I’m at the greenhouse 7 days a week, I do get some time to myself. I love spending time with my two daughters and wife.
