    Congratulations on being Farmer of the Day! I garden in the backyard and in containers, too! When I come home from my stressful day, I look forward to 'working' in the garden and sharing it with my kids and grandkids.

    Congrats on being farmer of the Day. Container gardening is fun isn't it? I have 22 containers on my front patio. Of course I do have a automatic watering system in place so I don't have to worry when I'm gone for a few days.

    Did you say fire ants. I've had some experience with those rascals and it was never good. They certainly do have a bite of fire.
