Farmer in the City





Location:  Bluffton, IN

Day Job:  EMT-BA

The Digs:  Backyard, Containers

Crops:  Apples, Basil, Bell Peppers, Blueberries, Carrots, Corn, Cucumbers, Green beans, Jalepeno Peppers, Lettuce, Mint, Raspberries, Rosemary, Spinach, Squash, Strawberries, Sugar Snap Peas, Tomatoes

Animals:  Cats, Chickens, Dogs

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I want my daughter to see where REAL food comes from. I am also very concerned with the chemicals going into our food and I want to avoid them as much as possible. More recently, I have been giving away extra plants to friends and people that want to provide homegrown veggies to their family but don't know where to start or cannot afford them.

    Your an EMT-BA and farming? Outstanding. I was a FF/EMT-B before I decided to devote my self to farming.

    Congratulations on Farmer of The Day. Food tastes so much better when you grow it yourself.

    @Rockin'- Yes I do. Corn, tomatoes/salsa, green beans, peas, stuffed green peppers, carrots (sometimes), all of my berries, and I dry my herbs. :)
