Farmer Tom

I call him "Farmer Tom." In addition to the edibles we eat, he's given away hundreds of dollars worth of bouquets to neighbors and passers-by at the lot. I like calling him Farmer Tom because that means I'm the Farmer's Wife. A role I like!

Here's a quote that fits us. It's from Extreme Simplicity, by Christopher and Dolores Lynn Nyerges.

In our view, "thinking like a farmer" means looking for
every opportunity to use your own land (even if it's a small urban lot) to
produce as much of the food.....and other userful materials that it possibly can."
