    Congratulations on Farmer of the Day - I'm just a little south of you. Would love to talk to you about growing Garlic sometime.

    I found a great youtube.com channel called, "The Edible Garden". Small space gardening that gave me loads of ideas. You'll love it.
    Arbor Day has affordable dwarf fruit trees.
    Nice to meet you!
