    Congrats on being named farmer of the day. I am going to miss my garden as we head into fall. I have not planted any more vegs - just started composting for Spring. Congrats again!

    Congrats on being farmer of the day.

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

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    Growing you own vegetables is a good way to become more self-sufficient. Isn't it?

    Have a great day in the garden.
