I’m so looking forward to the beginning of the 6th Ave market. I love walking there, having time to look around and see neighbors. I buy some produce and other things, but it’s a lot of social interaction that is nice.

Just remember you too can be a backyard farmer if you have a backyard.It can save a lot of money spent instead on groceries.Plus the food you grow is fresher too.
