    Hello, Congrats on being voted Farmer of the Day. Love to hear about your rabbits and goats. Do you milk your goat? That is what I would like to get next.

    Congrats on being farmer of the day.

    Wow, you have quite a few animals and birds don't you. My animals live outside in the wild. They are my source of entertainment as I sit on my patio and drink my hot cup of coffee.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    Hi, how great you grow such an assortment of veggies. My garden is getting bigger every year. Do Melons grow well in Oregon?
