    Such a nice little start to a wonderful (I hope!) harvest! Do you have any more pictures of your garden? I would love to see some!

    Congrats on being farmer of the day.

    Country living I believe is in all of our heritages and wants to be watered and left to grow and bloom.

    I wish you well in your container growing.
