    I love your pics of brown babies among fresh veggies and eggs. As a (grown) brown baby (and former foster kid social worker!) I thank you for your work...and food. I wish all babies to have the exposures and experiences that you're providing!

    Congratulations on being named Farmer of the Day! Wonderful photos. As a former foster parent myself, I applaud what you're doing.

    Congrats on being farmer of the day.

    I just feels right to grow your own vegetables and be able to know how they were grown. Doesn't it.

    Have a great farmer of the day.
