Seeds have sprouted in Bonnie’s Greenhouse off Red Schoolhouse Road in Osceola Mills.
It’s the time of year that April Albright, no matter how busy she gets, enjoys most. It means spring is just a few weeks away.
Albright took over the 21-year-old family business four years ago, after her mother Bonnie Harding died.
“She gardened with her grandparents, and I gardened with her, so I think, generation to generation, we’ve passed (the love of gardening) down,” Albright said.
Albright didn’t immediately enjoy gardening. After all, she said, what child likes weeding?
She has grown to love the art of planting a seed and growing it into a beautiful flower, a juicy tomato, a ... straw ...
“One-hundred percent, I have a lot of pride in this place,” Albright said. “It’s rewarding, very rewarding.”
In your house you can do that, but I also have a lot more light, unless you have a sun room. That’s where you grow lots of stuff, or you can do it in a little greenhouse.
