    Me 3! Emotional therapy : ) I like that as well! Congratulations on farmer of the day. Our tomatoes were volunteers and only grew a bucket full of tiny ones like that but didn't have time to turn red on the plant... so here's hoping they ripen on the counter : ) Voted!

    I see you keep bees. How long have you kept them? I have an interest in beekeeping but live in the city.
