Crops:  I try to grow as much as I can...herbs, veggies and small fruits make up my garden. I focus on heirloom varieties, and especially love the warm glow of a ripe tomato on the vine.

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I want to become more sustainable, and to enjoy a closer relationship with my food. Homegrown just tastes better! I also want to inspire others and encourage them to do the same, so I blog my experiences at www.mofarm.blogspot.com

    Delicious pictures. Congrats on farmer of the day. I heard ON got a lot of snow too. I use to live there. Manitoba, where i am now, is having a very mild winter. We were in the + last week. Lots of time for planning.

    Seeing your status today, I'm reminded of the great photos you have posted, and of your blog. What's been happening since December? Are you getting set to start your seeds for this year?
    Congratulations on being farmer of the day!

    Hey Kris

    You asked for an update about the Littlefields bean here or somewhere. Unfortunately only 3 seeds came up, but they produced well and I have pulled up the plants and am letting the pods dry for a few more days before I harvest the beans. Of course I am only trying to build up my inventory of seed, but next year I should have a bumper crop AND have some to share at Seedy Saturday too. Thanks again for the seed!

    Kris, I think I am most excited this year to try something I got from Baker Seeds called "Mexican sour gherkin". It's not really a cucumber but it apparently tastes like one dipped in a bit of lemon juice. Curiosity is DEFINITELY piqued! The seeds will go in the ground here in the next few days!
