    Congratulations on being farmer of the day! I am also thinking of getting some food growing in the front yard. So far, it's only flowers, trees and shrubs out front. I thought I might start with some fruit trees or shrubs. I'm really interested in permaculture. Have you done anything with your front yard, yet?

    How are you coping with the snow? I started some cleanup last weekend and was soooo happy to be in the garden.... easy come, easy go, right? Not long now, I hope!

    Congrats on being Farmer of the day.

    I too got my start with gardening by watching and helping my Mom. I kind of wish I had watched a little more than I did. She could grow anything she put her mind to. As for me I was pretty much a black thumb until a couple years ago when I started reading gardening blogs.

    Have a great Farmer of the Day.
