My self-summary
Thoughtful, honest , resourceful, mentally and financially stable, absurdly tolerant and tolerant of the absurd. Liberal in most ways, libertarian in the others.
I'm 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 anger.

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 as pets.
-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 bald.
-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
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 more interesting.
I’m really good at
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 direction.

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 with potential.
The first things people usually notice about me
My shiny bald head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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.
Six things I could never do without
"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
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
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 don't eat foods that contain gluten.
You should message me if
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.
