Continuing our pictorial peek into life here on the urban homestead. As for the previous entry with the fish: FYI, we won’t be naming them anytime soon in case you are wondering!
Farmers Justin & Sergio visit the local nursery that’s right across the street from our urban homestead and check out the vegetable selection looking for heirlooms.
