    Hi Matt,
    Thanks for requesting me as a friend. I love the chicken, oh boy do I want chickens. Just waiting for the right time though. Let me know how your sweet potatoes do. I'm doing regular potatoes for the first time this year, piling it all high with straw.

    Wow! Thanks for making me Farmer of the Day! What a surprise!
    Its gotten warmer but we're still getting a lot of rain and cool overnight temps. The ladies are fully integrated now and the pullets are starting to sound like big girls.
    My effort to grow sweet potatoes has had a rough start, but it looks like I'll come through with three or four plants.
    Thanks again, everyone!
