    I like what you're doing and I envy your growing season. While we await official planting season up here, I believe you've probably transitioned from the winter growing season into the spring. How's it going in 2012?

    Where do you get your barrels from? Currently, I use cheap Rubbermaid trash bins. They do the job, but they get a little misshapen when full. I'm interested in finding a sturdier structure without paying through the nose...

    So glad to be an Urban Farmer!! We only have a 1/2 acre lot, but do a lot with it! Grow lots of yummy and organic fruits/veggies. Have 14 chickens that give us wonderful eggs and pest control. Just started raising meat rabbits and we are fascinated by our bee hive! We also make rain barrels and composters about of repurposed food grade barrels. Wish we had room to do more! But, we are very proud of what we can do!
