Carter studied biology. He though he wanted to work in a lab, but quickly discovers that he prefers the slow pace of the mountains and eventually (towards the end of the story) builds a greenhouse farm where Jessie Hupp gets a section to do her flowers.
My house is going to be all glass with a huge open atrium with a maple tree planted in the middle. There's also going to be a little pond and waterfall that my dad is going to build for me. The pond is going to be filled with vibrant koi fish that my kids are going to pick out.
