    It's time to turn previous farm land (which most suburban areas are built on now) back into farm land, just with people living on it.

    Urban farmers unite! We must turn the burbs into farmland! :)

    I like your sinister plan to turn suburbia into little micro-farms. I'm hoping it works.

    You have a great looking salad garden. How big is your garden. Some of those things your are growing take up quite a bit of space. I just have space for a couple tomatoes, some potatoes, onions, and three bell pepper plants. I want to expand the garden and build a couple more raised beds for the early stuff. I've never tried to grow the lettuce and broccoli kind of veggies.

    Congrats on Farmer of the Day. I hope that day just continues to better as it passes by.
