    Thanks Nebraska Dave - we have a small space too, but it's amazing what we've been able to fit in it! :)

    Congrats on Farmer of the Day. Self-reliant back to the roots of America living is where my family came from and where I still yearn to be. However I have to be satisfied with my Urban Ranch mid town city lot. It keeps me busy enough and the three raised beds give me a chance to grow a few veggies.
