Have you seen those bumper stickers that say, “I farm. You eat.”?
I started seeing them several years ago and thought it sounded like farmers were being a bit egotistical or self-important. But that was before I tried my hand at it.
Before I stopped working full-time about six years ago, I was an avid and loyal customer of the Henry County Farmers Market. Working as many hours as I did prohibited me from having my own garden, but I desperately wanted fresh local produce in the summer, especially garden-grown tomatoes.
