    Congrats on being farmer of the day.

    Very nice rain water set up. Mine is much more primitive.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    Hey. The AZ summer was fine but am so happy to be planting romaine and spinach again. Look for us to be working a lot with the PPG in the near future. Our next project is rain water and you look like you have already tackled that one. I'd like to see your setup. We are starting our as soon as it cools down a little bit more.

    Would love to see your setup! Water is the next item on my agenda.
