'By Durin's beard! Are you serious?

He mutters to himself.

'You are not the only farmer that I have met in my days, but I find that most farmers are...never mind.

'Imir has been assigned the task of teaching all the new farmers their basics. Go and speak with him in the greenhouse -- though I do hope that you will reconsider.

'You can find the greenhouse entrance is to the right of the main entrance of the Hall.'
