    Congrats on being farmer of the day. You do have quite a wide variety of vegetables, berries, and herbs.

    Good luck on your book sales.

    Have a great autumn day.

    You have reminded me of the joys of foraging for the sweet wild fruits and berries. Mulberries and elderberries are the prime wild foraging berries in Nebraska.

    Have a great foraging day.
