Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I have always wanted to have a garden of my own, my wife and I finally got out of our apartment and in to a house this year! Our landlords were nice enough to let me tear out half the backyard to do so! I have been at it now since January and I think things are coming along nicely (hope they stay that way) Feel free to check out my blog for a more in depth look at what I do! joshbfarmin.wordpress.com Thanks for reading!

    Congratz! Great to hear that you have landlords who 'get it' ...
    Best of luck with your garden.
