Location:  Williamsport, PA

Day Job:  Wastewater treatment plant operator

The Digs:  Backyard

Crops:  Apples, Blackberries, Carrots, Grapes, Lettuce, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Raspberries, Tomatoes, watermelons, eggplant,

Animals:  Chickens

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  There is nothing in this world more fulfilling than raising your own food. From the very beginning it is a blessing that you can watch the seeds sprout and then tend them throughout their growth cycle and when it comes harvest time....just pure joy and a lot of sweat! I like to watch things grow. I have two children that I want to realize they too can grow their own food and be more sustainable and not rely on others for their nourishment...building responsibility, drive and self pride in knowing that they can be successful in anything they put their minds too!

    Great picture gallery! I also appreciate your whole philosophy on why you do what you do. How's it been going since January?

    Congrats on being farmer of the day. In a world where we get anything in an instant, gardening still takes the same amount of time to grow. You are wise in allowing your children to see the benefits of gardening. It's not only the food but the patient process as well.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    Wow, that is one nice looking raspberry. I hope all of them turned out just like that one.

    Have a great new year day.
