    Congratulations on being farmer of the month! I checked out your Veggucation website. Great. And thanks for the pictures. I love to be able to see what others are doing via their profile pages, and the pictures tell the story.

    Thanks for the comment! Permaculture, is great for a lazy man like me... lol. Once there permaculture system is going, it requires very little work to maintain it.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone,

    Thanks for the kind words. Gotta get up and out to finish our holiday bird on the grill. So cool that all of the herbs that cost us an arm and a leg at the grocery store are now readily available from the yard. Gonna gobble up some holiday goodies in a few.

    Grilled turkey, sweet potato pone, macaroni and cheese, brown rice stuffing, spinach, rolls, pumpkin and pecan pies, and maybe a blueberry dump cake. What's everybody else having?

    Almost forgot about the fresh lemongrass tea.

    Just to answer some of the questions, our community garden is open to the public. No one owns any specific plot. We're trying to get folks used to harvesting fresh produce. At least 4 folks in the neighborhood, excluding myself and our nonprofit's CEO have grabbed up some food. I just did a lesson with about 8 middle school students and showed them how to harvest cut and come again lettuce.
