Welcome to Richard and Colleen! We've been waiting for you, kept the light on....LOL....

I do so applaud what you are doing, it is what I had hoped to one day accomplish myself and as yet have not. Starting over now on a small city lot rather than a larger property, I don't see that happening, but one never knows. I would like to think that everyone who CAN grow food to help others less fortunate would / could do so....you are doing your part.
I could be wrong...
and.....
"maybe I should have kept my mouth shut....."
