    Congrats on your 'Farmer of the Day' status! After the long winter we've had in Ontario, I bet you're just as excited as I am to dig in this season. Not too long now!

    Congrats on being farmer of the day.

    I too have containers on the front patio and raised garden beds in the backyard but I don't community garden .... yet.

    Have a great cooking school coordinator day.

    It's never to young to get them started in gardening is it? I have a six year old grandson but he doesn't seem to be too interested in gardening .... yet. Hopefully more exposure to plants and growing this year will spark his interest.

    Have a great gardening day.
