I am a Local Farmer

and you can be one too!

This is the second summer I have had a garden in my backyard and it is one of the easiest and most rewarding things I have ever done.

This year we planted strawberries, cantelope, watermelon, 2 kinds of bell peppers, 2 kinds of tomatoes, lettuce, and cucumbers.
All were very successful besides the strawberries. I think something might be eating those.

So now we have more tomatoes, bell peppers and cucumbers then we know what to do with...what a great and easy way to get your 5 servings of veggies for the day. Just walk in the back yard and start eating!

Here are the basics to having a garden of your very own:
Put the plant in the ground, water every few days and let nature take over.
It's that easy.
