    Congrats on being farmer of the day.

    Now that's a real raised bed for sure. Mine are only four timbers high.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    Congrats on the FOTD award!

    I like how high your raised bed is. Bees in the city? Cool.

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