Why I'm Getting Dirty:  There is nothing better than growing your own food. Most people don't think about where their food comes from outside of their weekly trip to the grocery store, however being part of the process and harvesting your own crops is so fulfilling. I love being able to present my friends and neighbors with fresh eggs, fruits and vegetables!
