Why I'm Getting Dirty:  Want to grow own food for family and create a sustainable surburban mini-farm. Trying to be more self sufficient and teach my kids and grandson to do the same! Trying to incorporate what little I've been able to learn about permaculture and working on going the "No Lawn" concept too! I love being outdoors working on the little land we have.

    Hi Quinn. Thanks for the visit. My FOM was quite a while back. My crops are doing well, for the most part. I should post more current pics. Tomatoes are ripening nicely and I planted them inside from seed and didn't keep track of the type so, as they are ripening I'm able to figure them out. My summer squashes ended up with powdery mildew so the last fruit to start up is now shrivelling up but I've still got lots of cucumbers. My everbearing strawberries are still producing. I have kale and lettuce starting up for a fall crop. It's Labour Day weekend up here and I hope to get a lot of garden work done. Have a good weekend!

    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.
