    Congratulations on being Farmer of the Day. I love your profile picture. One thing I look forward to when it comes to retirement is spending more time in the garden. Have a great day!

    Congrats on the FOTD! Gardening is so stress relieving, that is for sure. I see that you are growing a full palate of crops. That is great!

    Have a great day today, and a better one tomorrow!
