    I love it when I vote for someone and the next day they're farmer of the day! Congratulations. Hope you have a good one. Up here in Ontario we're getting some really out-of-the-ordinary weather (19% C today), which almost fools one into thinking they can plant outside. Gotta be careful not to get ahead of the game but I am getting ready to start seeds indoors.
    "Happy Farmer of the Day" day.
