    Congrats on being farmer of the day.

    I expect your garden is much farther along than mine. I've just planted most of the garden and really won't harvest anything for at least 4 to 6 weeks.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    I too have containers in on the front patio and raised garden beds in the backyard.

    Have a great Pet Sitter day.

    I wish I could have chickens. I'd love to have fresh eggs. I love the photo. That would be my cat trying to talk to the chickens LOL.
