BUSINESS PROFILE: Ed Kruse

Business: Part owner of 2 Christian Brothers Home and Yard Service, 3170 S. Blagg Road.

775-910-2830

Age: 52

First job: “I was in sixth grade and I worked in a transmission shop.”

Background: “I have been doing landscaping since 1979. I also did roofing in Florida and plumbing and landscaping in Las Vegas. I came to Christ because I was stupid. I was an alcoholic and I had to straighten out my life. I met my partner Jeff, and that changed my life. We do things together and instead of talking about changing, we did change.”

Years in business: “I have been in this type of business for over 15 years.”

Personal: “My uncle has 2 ½ acres and I like to help him with it. He’s 77 and I like to see what grows out here. I also have a quad and I like to take that out.”

Business climate: “When we do a job, we do it like we would want it done and people spread the word about it. This is why we will be successful because most businesses don’t do that and in this economy that’s important. We do things for God. He gives us everything. We help people out with low prices and we know we are blessed to be working.”

IN SEASON: Carrots, a kaleidoscope of colors, sizes and shapes

Carrots are a pretty inexpensive vegetable to buy at the grocery store, and for this reason many gardeners do not grow them. I like to grow them because they come in beautiful varieties and can fit easily between other vegetables in the garden. That space would not be used otherwise so I like to make good use of it.

IN SEASON: The beat on beets

I’ve noticed that one of the most requested items at the Farmers Market is beets. It mystifies me because I am not a fan of the flavor. Beets are fun to grow though, and very versatile. They are also easy to grow and have a quick turn-around from seed to harvest.
