    I was looking for other urban farmers in Mi and I found your page. Praise the Lord for his blessing and abundance we receive each day. I'm encouraged by your message and your huge garden, I'm just starting out. Thank you.

    Great looking garden. There's nothing like being in the garden to start up the day or close down the day .... well, and any where in between too. :)
