All year-round Farmer Brown and his family are busy, cultivating plants in the greenhouse in wintertime, and planting and sowing the harvest in. the warmer months. And finally, when the customers come, the hard work has paid off. There are beautiful flowers to buy, delicious vegetables to eat, and strawberries ripe for the picking.
