    Hi, Thanks for the congrats on Farmer of the Day! The nation's food is scary. I never thought much about it until a few years ago. And the more I read, the more I know I want to provide for myself and support local farmers. You're pictures are beautiful! What a great garden you have~ you're kids are so cute & love your chickens. Have a great day! ~Renee'

    I love the look of your raised beds. Do you have them on an angle? Also, it looks like you have corn planted in a barrel. Did it do well in it. I had trouble with my corn last year and I am looking for other ideas for this year. Have a great day in the garden!
