Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I mostly grew up in inner-city Chicago, but over the years I traveled around the world with the Army. Whenever I had a chance to get local fresh foods I jumped at it and always found it to make the best meals. Getting back to the states I sought out CSAs and tried my had at organic gardening and find it very soothing and meditative. I love sinking my hands into the soil and feeling the texture of it.

    Congrats on being named Farmer of the Day, again. Must be a great farmer to be picked twice.
