US (ME): Personal Gardeners look after Backyard tomato plants

One of the most important roles in the Backyard Farms greenhouse is Crop Care Specialist. These are the people who care for plants with the same care and dedication as they do their own gardens. In fact, inside the greenhouse, that's just what they call them — Personal Gardeners. There's nothing relaxing about working in the Backyard Farms greenhouse though. It's hard work that requires a lot of focus and attention to detail and Judy Huff is one of the absolute best, according to the company.

Back in November, Backyard shared what a typical day is like for a Crop Care Specialist when they interviewed Emily Ames. This month, they decided to shake things up by interviewing Assistant Growers Brady Sinclair and Liza Graham who have both supervised Judy during her many years at Backyard Farms.

Read the full interview at the Backyard Farms blog.
