    Sorry for the late responses. Thanks for the comments. Over the holidays I found the Mother Earth News Garden Planner, what a great tool. We will post our plans on our web site tsdesigns.com soon.

    Congrats on farmer of the day. I too have five backyard raised bed gardens. Your concern about employees eating healthy is an admireable goal.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    I used to pick blackberries from wild patches in the woods when I lived in Missouri. I kind of miss the seasonal trip to the farm to pick the precious berries.

    Have a great garden day.
