    Thank you for the farming wishes last October! I've been a busy girl and hopefully can share more often now! My container garden has grown quite a bit!

    Tonight I venture into a green journey...buying a rosemary tree for my little room instead of a Christmas tree :) We'll see if I can keep up it's spirits.

    Thank you very much! I'm so excited about learning from everyone and seeing where my newly acquired green'ish thumb can take me :)

    Congrats on being farmer of the day. I had no less than 24 containers on my front patio. They were filled with different kinds of shade flowers.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    It's so true that if you grow it then you know exactly what has been used on your food. I have five garden beds that I have slowing grown into over the last three years.

    Have a great garden day.
