    Love the chicken coop/tractor. Can't wait to build one of my own.

    Beautiful chicken coop. Congrats on Farmer of the Day! I agree, its so liberating to see the food growing right in front of your eyes and know that its real and without the chemical additives and strange growth hormones. Good for you. How did you eat all of those tomatoes? Did you preserve some for later?
