Why I'm Getting Dirty:  Homegrown vegetables and fresh eggs taste so much better than store bought because we know what goes into each item. My husband and I are a good team; I plant and water and he picks the veges of our labor.

    Nice operation you've got going there. Your raised beds are very deep. What did you fill them with?
