Also, I'm bored sometimes. It's not stimulating actually because I always make same things. I want to make my own falt white if I go back to work.

I like too much learn about the crops everyday, work under the sun, enjoying the birds company, and the sound and the sensation of the wind. Also, in my garden everything is natural because we do not use chemical products and for that reason our clients appreciate our work.
