    Thanks for the praise! Grew up in a one-school town that didn't even have a high school. Dad and Grandpa had a dairy farm (with chickens), and they sold it when Cumberland Farms came round. Guess whether in the 'burbs or the city, you can't take the farm out of the girl!

    Your picture of your house looks very exquisite. I always like the cottage style house with the picket fence.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    I take you really like berries from the crops that you listed. I do too but I don't have the room to grow any.

    Have a great berry day.
