Matt seemed thrilled to have this season done and he was able to stay safe at the same time. Saying “Frankly with my compromised physical lungs I was terrified of catching COVID. I still am. I’m not sure I would survive it with my posture .. being bent over making my lungs less robust than the average 59 yr old male. I’ve always lived life to the fullest while balancing risks vs rewards. I enjoy talking calculated challenges from time to time.” It seems to of paid off for Matt and the Roloff family, this pumpkin season.
