    Congratulations on being farmer of the day! Three acres is a nice size...Room for the crops and the animals. My 'digs' are in a suburban environment, in the outskirts of a village within the city. The property actually used to be a farm but was subdivided and built up all around. The front yard is deep but the back yard is very shallow, so no room for chickens and the like but I'm working on growing as much food as possible in the space I have. Enjoy your 'farmer of the day' day.
