Ok folks it's getting close to time to be ready for planting only a couple of more weeks before it's to late .You should have a plan in place by now and preparing for planting .I will be doing an overview Saturday at 10:00 and will also cover soil and water systems to help get you started ..Come learn to grow 30% of your food .That's our goal to teach everyone to grow 30% of there food This will not only save you money but ensure that you have healthy food to eat .Learning to grow your own food takes time and you gain more experience every year. So if you start now over the next few years you will become proficient at it .When healthy local fresh fruit and veggies are not available. You will be growing your own..Due to new regulations and laws more and more farms will stop selling to the public and all you will be able to buy is industrial grown chemically treated produce . Don't depend on others for your food grow it your self and be sure it's safe and free of chemicals ...

IT'S WEDNESDAY ....
