Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I grew up in the country farm life, and countinue on with farmlife into now. We switched over from conventional row to SquarFootGarden recently BIG improvement in small space. we still can most of our food. That is the way we grew up and Im keeping the time honored traditions alive for my family and anyone we can share with that wants to learn. We grow all our own plants now and enough extra to give out to other folks who can be blessed by our work. Its an honest way to live by and its what I grew up knowing. I get great joy out of giving my time to others that want to learn. I have built gardens for some folks here in town and schooled them on what they need to do and how to maintain what they have. Im here if they need help. All the works that I have put my hands to richly blessed me in so many ways. Thank you for your intrest!!!

    Hi! Thanks for the congrads on my new farm page. Much appreciated! I like the fact that you are continuing your tradition and teaching others to grow their own food. I'm just learning and reading alot about it. I too want to help others grow their own food, but only after I'm feel successful at it - that's not now!! Good luck with your SQFT gardening. Let me know how it turns out and post some pics of it when you do. Thanks!

    Thanks to all for the Farmer of the Day vote, we are very honored!!! @Nebraska Dave, yes SFG setup is absolutely the best!!! We should made the change over 15yrs ago when we first looked at SFG. After the up front expense is over with, very little is needed to maintain after that. Up front cost was well worth all years of labor we will save, which give us much needed time in other areas of our ministry. Thanks for your interest!!! Check us out on FaceBook @ Gardening Ministries of America!!!:-):-)

    Square foot gardening really does cut down on the work and save space. Doesn't it?

    Have a great square foot garden day.
