Today I interviewed my oldest son, Declan in this installment of Get To Know Your Grower. 

He is 12 years old and is a big help around the farm as well as the farmer’s market.

Declan hates to be bored, so he is always outside doing something, from trampolining to fishing to biking. He is an outdoorsman at heart.

I know I’m his mom and maybe a bit biased, but his work ethic at 12 years old is probably better than most adults!

I know he works a lot harder than I ever did at that age.

Without further ado, here is his interview.
