    I'm from Philly (Germantown to be exact) and didn't know there was so much room to grow! Then there's snow.... Loving California year round growing but congrats to you! Go celebrate with a good cheesesteak!

    Congrats on farmer of the Day! I too wish i had as much land as it looks like you do. I only have a lot about 90 x 110 feet, including my house, garage, and driveway. :(

    Good growing,

    I love the name! Congratulations on being farmer of the day. Is the photo the backyard or the community garden. Looks like a pretty good space for a city garden.
