Why I'm Getting Dirty:  My parents grew up on farms in the Midwest, it must be in my blood. I spent hours every summer in my family garden pulling weeds, etc. Even on my birthday! I always loved to visit my grandparents farm with the chickens, cows, and fresh produce. Now I'm showing my kids how easy it can be to grow your own food and we just got chickens too!
