    Congrats on beiing Farmer of the day.

    We had plenty of snow here this year too. The 40 degree days are melting it all away and by the week's end it will be all gone.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    I too had no less than 22 containers on my front patio last year. I hope to have the same this year.

    Have a great Acquisition library clerk day.
