Oy—you're in the wrong place if you're looking for a power trip. Flower power is reserved for the floral designers who prettify your products. Those who grow flowers typically grow what the market demands. Only occasionally do growers exercise their power to try something really different and hope it'll be desirable by the time it blooms.

Most of the tangible power you'll experience is tractor power out in the field. It can feel powerful up there, sitting in that tractor and feeling it rumble underneath you. Better harness that feeling while you can, because it won't do much for you in terms of controlling your workers, the flower market, or the weather.
