Happy Thanksgiving: Thank a Farmer!

This is me (last year) with my favorite local farmer, Tom T. Ishibashi, I want to thank him this Thanksgiving! He is my Farmer Hero!

I am putting a link to my story that I did for this week because they have chosen it as their Daily Action for Today/Thanksgiving Day.

So, make sure to go and Thank a Farmer, without them, there would be no Thanksgiving foods or any food for that matter.
