Pictured is Bruce Thompson, Cooper/Greater Longfellow resident. Thompson’s bought their home in 1993. Soon after they moved in, he discovered the rich black soil in their backyard. His garden is 15 x 30 feet approximately, and he gardens everything from hops to peppers, to majestic sunflowers in the distance. Bruce also has perfected home brewing with his hops.
