hi fp- looks like you made out like a bandit at the sale- i went on saturday and got tons of stuff- will post pics soon. <br/> <br/>See that you just started a blog! Looks really cool :) If you want to create a link to it from here, all we ask is that you do a brief summary of what the post is about and maybe add a picture or two- almost like an introduction to your post on your blog, and then say to read more... then people can go to your blog to read the full post. <br/> <br/>Please ask if you have any questions about this! <br/>

hi fp! I know that you&#x27;re uploading a bunch of pictures and it may look a little strange right now, but we are fixing the bug and it should look awesome very soon!

It seemed ok to me! I realized afterward though that it gives me "credit" for the photos, but they came from Annie's Annuals website (where I got the plants). Not sure how to change that, or if I need to.

when you upload a photo there is a box that says :"credit" and that is where you can give your credit! I will do it for you on these ones :)

Yep, our first time. I tried tomatoes in buckets last year, but ended up slacking off due to family issues last summer. This year we are fired up though! Beds built, soil in, got some seeds, and hitting Tilth's early edible sale!

The early edible sale is March 20th for the public, BUT if you want go early, you can pay $25 a ticket (only selling 100 of them) and go Friday night! I am doing that with a friend - birdfarm, who just joined. Check out their website for a list of what will be there.
