    WOW- I didn't' even realize I was a farmer of the day! How exciting! Thanks for all the nice comments. IN terms of the egg pix, I get a little obsessed taking pictures of them. I love the colors. I'll post some of my winter crops soon. I was able to grow some really nice broccoli this season.

    Your pictures are great and your 'digs' look lovely. I envy your growing season. I'm dreaming of spring and looking forward to planting seeds inside soon.
