This year this Fatty attempted to grow my own food. Amazingly enough – I succeeded! Feast your eyes upon this plentiful bounty of tasty homegrown spuds. We planted our french fry feast in a large 50-gallon trash can and followed the close directions of the kind staff at Bayview Farm & Garden, where we purchased […]

It is located right next door to the swanky high end grocery store Central […]
