One of the families behind Pike Place Market's famous flowers

It doesn’t look as beautiful as I thought it would as I step onto the flower farm. It’s not like, say, the spring Tulip Festival in Skagit Valley where there are just rows and rows of flowers as far as the eye can see.

The beauty of See Lee Farm is more subtle. Scott Chang, who helps run the farm and sells the flowers he grows there at Pike Place Market, said he gets that a lot.

“We have a lot of people asking us, 'Hey, can we come visit your farm?' Like, well, it's not as pretty because it is a working farm, so you'll see a little bit of blooms, but we're going to be harvesting them as they come up," Chang said.

It’s a warm spring day, but Scott has his Seattle Mariners hoodie on. His dark hair is pulled back. He was born into this flower business. His mom, Chue, kept him by her side whether she was working at the farm, or at the market. “So I have my little son, one-years old, I said, 'Oh I better take him to the farm, as I don't need to pay for a babysitter, because I had no money," Chue said.
