US (PA): Couple celebrates 50 years of growing greenhouse business in backyard

Pennsylvania (WPVI); Tucked away in a backyard in a residential neighborhood is a pocketful of sunshine that's shined for 50 years.

"This is where I've lived since 1949," said Chuck Miller, co-owner of Miller Greenhouses. "My dad had a green thumb, and we had 10,000 Norway Spruce Christmases going here at one time."

That labor was hard work for Miller, then a high-school student.

"And then we built a greenhouse and switched to poinsettias and spring plants, which was a whole lot easier than growing trees," he said.

Miller founded his greenhouse business in 1973. Shortly after, he met his wife, Rosemary, on a blind date. Their relationship blossomed in tandem with their homegrown business over the next 45 years and counting.
