Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm honest, intelligent, and a little rough around the edges. I
love interesting conversation and I read constantly, but I'm just
as happy working or spending time outdoors in silence. I react to
disagreeable people more with curiosity rather than than
Plants are my life. I study them, grow them and sell them. One of
my most important goals is to research and develop better ways to
cultivate our most important crops. I am very committed to
sustainable agriculture and providing people with safe produce, as
well as educating people on how to grow it themselves.
When I am not working, I still love to be outdoors. I go camping
when I can, and I'm fortunate to live in an area where there are
lots of hiking trails and places to fish or go swimming. Of course,
I still enjoy a night out at a nice restaurant now and then.
Some random facts about me:
-I started wearing flannel shirts when they were fashionable in the
'90s and never stopped.
-I collect National Geographic Magazine. I have all of them back to
the 70's, and I've read most of them cover to cover.
-I don't read much fiction, but I love to read.
-I work with plants, but I also love insects. No, I don't keep them
-I dread hot weather. If it's hot enough to melt chocolate, it's
too hot for me.
-In the summer, sometimes I shave my head. In the winter, I'm still
-I grow vegetables, eat vegetables, and I have respect for
vegetarians. However I am not, nor will I ever be, a vegetarian.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in greenhouses and on a farm. It's a family business, and I
enjoy the plants and produce. Also, I own a bunch of apartments
that I rent out. The money in real estate is easier, but plants are
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a green thumb and the patience necessary to grow things, as
well as the patience and instincts it takes to deal with tenants.
I'm also good with animals, and I have an uncanny sense of
I'm really good in seeing potential. I can take what I know and
expand it in a relevant way to find what fits if only the correct
circumstance were applied. I find this helpful in dealing with
people, business, and plants. Potential is often ignored and always
underrated. Everyone and everything has the ability to be something
more, if only..... : If you know what comes next, you're the one

I'm not religious, but I find spirituality in other things, like
film, music, nature, food and people. I listen to classical music
like Rachmananov, Bach, Ravel, and Mussorgsky as well as The
Beatles, Radiohead, The Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan. I believe
Stanley Kubric was brilliant, and science fiction has only gotten
better since I was young. Sometimes chocolate, beer, bacon, and
fresh, ripe figs make me wonder, for a split second, if there
really is a god.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
"Do without" is a phrase my grandfather uses when remembering the
Great Depression. In this context, I can do without anything except
the clothes on my back and my family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what plants I should grow, how can I maximize my yield, what should
my next botanical experiment be, how I should renovate my house,
where my next vacation will be, or should I even bother thinking
about these things and just live my life minute by minute....or am
I even capable of that?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading, wasting time on Google Earth or Wikipedia, or occasionally
going on a night hike. I prefer to stay in on Friday and Saturday
nights because I don't like noisy, crowded restaurants.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't eat foods that contain gluten.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're not always worried about your image. You like introspection,
respect creativity, and you consider a lie by omission to still be
a lie. I don't care if you think there is something wrong with you
or if other people think you're strange. If you are a good person
who wants to find a guy who will treat you like a good person, I
want to hear from you.
