Once I got over the initial excitement (admittedly, I did do a little dance or two) I turned my mind to the practicalities. The idea of a greenhouse was an interesting one.

Thank you so much to Samsung for inviting me on this amazing adventure – and to Emily Henderson and her team (I’m looking at you Brady Tolbert!) for four fabulous days in Upstate New York, it was such a pleasure to work with you!
I hope you like the end result? – could you imagine hanging out here all summer too?
