    Thank you all so much for the kind words, and encouragement. As far as the weed blocker i dont use plastic. I use the dupont brand weedblocker. I beleive Lowes is the only place that carries that brand.
    I am located in Tulsa, Ok. Green Desert; i look forward to reading your book. Keep in touch. I am the President of a food securities commission. I know exactly what you mean in regards to roadblocks that want to turn free people into sheeple. LOL!

    I'm in the middle of writing a book on the concept of urban farming with a bent toward self-reliance. In my research, I have come across a multitude of bureaucratic nonsense that effectively puts roadblocks in people's lives especially when they try to produce at least some of their own food. I applaud your philosophy that change needs to begin with you. That's really the level where all meaningful change takes place. Congratulations on Farmer of the Day! Keep on!

    Congrats on the Farmer of the Day. I lived in Altus OK for a time as a Kid and it looked nothing like your photo :)
    Congrats for the self sufficiency!! I'm working on that for our family as well.

    Congrats on being the farmer of the day. After some freezing cold weather it has turned warm for a spell. I hope that I can get my final yard cleanup finished before the cold returns.

    Have a great farmer of the day.
