    Hi Quinn. I wasn't paying attention and almost missed your special month. Congratulations. I still love your profile picture. It's one of my favourite shots in the site overall. I'm glad to hear that your crops are getting more and more successful. I'm also planting for fall, mostly kale and lettuce. Would you believe the kale I planted last fall is still growing? It survived the winter and I harvested a bunch but left the main plants intact and they are growing again and around them, some of the seeds that dropped have started to grow and then I also harvested the seed pods and planted the rest of the seeds last week. Everything comes full cycle. Isn't it great?!

    YEAH!! Thank you all who voted for our little urban farm - I cannot believe I got Farmer of the Month. I was very surprised when I got the message today. It's been a lot of fun starting our little gardens to finally grow real food. I wish everyone who is growing their own food or just starting out, to stick to it as it has plenty of rewards. I want to grow more and am trying succession planting as well as starting my fall crops now. Thanks again everyone! Have a great growing season or better yet season(s)!

    Hello!

    Thanks everyone for the votes and congrats on being Farmer of the Day! I didn't even know it until today. I'm so ashamed I haven't made any updates or uploaded pictures. Most of my garden is doing well this year. I have lots of different types of tomatoes growing and cucumbers galore, along with different types of beans and many flowers. I've been doing some more natural landscaping for nature's critters. I really need to upload pics of this year's gardens. Thanks again everyone for your comments.

    Hey Quinn Looks like I missed your farmer of the day win. Congratulations on that. I'm having a good garden year, so far. The berries are particularly plentiful and I have found there to be fewer pests in the garden. Only one slug in the strawberries so far. Maybe I should be knocking wood (I'll do that now). How is you garden year going?
