    We used to live in a town called Edgewater in British Columbia, Canada... but they locally referred to it as Edgeweed! LOL Voted! Congratulations on farmer of the day!

    I like how you have a mixture of plants in the one space in your picture. It reminds me of my own digs. Congratulations on being farmer of the day. How was the garden in 2013?

    Congrats on being farmer of the Day. You must have a big backyard. You certainly do grow a lot of different things.
