This is a song about the freedom gained through growing your own. For me it is a dream which I’ve barely begun. I don’t yet have the land or the skills to make it a reality. With your support, I will get there, and continue to motivate others to do the same.

The Farm in My Front Yard
By J.E. Manning
Key of G major
Ever since I lost my job, I’m making other plans
Yes, I’m changing my direction,
Now I’m headed for the land
Time to get back to my roots; it shouldn’t be too hard
Walking out my own front door
to the farm in my front yard
Refrain: Diggy diggy don, do-si-do
Plant a little seed then watch it grow,
Eieieioh On the farm in my front yard
