    Congratulations on being named farmer of the day. And "I like gardening" is as good a reason as any.

    Congrats on being farmer of the day.

    Gardening is fun and it's just nice knowing what's been put on the plants while they were growing. Don't you think?

    Wow, your picture looks like something that's growing in my side yard. I call it the alien weed from out space.

    Have a great marketing & design day.
