    Congrats on being farmer of the day. It is much cheaper to grow the food than buy it in the store isn't it?

    Have a great cheap day.

    I don't necessarily think that cheap is bad. I try to be as cheap as possible myself, especially when I can do it myself. So count me in with agreeing with you.

    As another cheap person I couldn't agree more!
