  1. We just got back. We feel good that we were able to support the local High School Farm. We bought some salad fixin’s,tomatoe plant and a gallon of worm tea. The young lady told me the tomatoe plant is the red kind. I think it is pretty Kool that Catahoula is putting this on. I will support them.
    P.S. The Worm Tea does not taste very good.
