    HOW AWESOME! your "garden" reminds me so much of my mom's when i was growing up! I grew up in upstate new york and my mama basically farmed on a garden scale... or... gardened on a farm scale? This is the type of model that makes perfect sense to me. cheers to you for, from the look of it, doing it really well and for putting a lot of love and mission into it. Cheers!!
