Farmer in the City





Location:  Maryville, TN

Day Job:  Writer/Comic Artist/Student

The Digs:  Backyard, Containers, Parking lot

Crops:  Strawberries, Sugar Snap Peas

Animals:  Rabbits

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  Food is too expensive for something everyone needs to survive. Plus it's loads of fun and a great way to get outside. It's also very satisfying to see your crop pull in. It's like, "Wow, I made this and I'm proud of that." Also, if the world were to end and all the grocery stores were to blow up, I'd know how to grow my own food and survive. Adding to that, it's a lot of fun teaching my sister how to grow her own food. :3
