    Whoohoo! So happy finally made it to Farmer-of-the-Day!

    Thank you very much, fellow gardeners, for all the best wishes!

    Hi, Red Hill Hollow! The weather down here, especially this weekend, has been fantastic. Thanks for asking. Great day tomorrow for one of the biggest event of the year in our neighborhood, the Boston Marathon. Things are all springing up down here as well. Though I still saw a pile of snow a good 10 feet high about three miles down the road from my house! (Must have been where they dump all the snow from South Boston so they can hold their annual St. Patrick's Day parade last March. LOL.)

    Again, thank you very much for the vote. And, I wish everybody a very productive 2015 planting season.

    HI Dante, we actually didn't have too hard a winter which was fortunate... as Pete had surgery in November so he was out of commission... I had to even learn to drive the skid steer! I did clear the snow twice... I thought that was going to give hubby heart failure! Some one not him.. especially a woman & me! driving his skid steer.. and he could do nothing... lol but looks like we are to have one last bite of winter.. before the weather becomes more springy :)
    Left you a vote : )

    Thanks for the vote and the congratulations. I have two beds that are raised, they're 5'x6' and I plan on adding at least 2 more for this season.

    Hi Dante. How was your garden in 2014. Your yard looked lovely.
