    Congratulations for being farmer of the day!

    Admire & glad to see your resourcefulness. One thing I regret for not doing during my four-month stint in New Orleans during the USCG Katrina Operations. Having a little garden inside the base. We had plenty of room and after work there's really nothing much to do or places to go for that matter. Hit the gym & watch TV. Could have put the TV time to better use like you.

    I'm a USCG retiree and two of my sons are both on active duty with the US Army.

    Good luck to you, Soldier!
