Justin and Danielle Leszcz, as the headline of this week's Café column reads, "chucked the 9-to-5" in favor of turning their property in suburban Affton into a working farm.
While farmers of generations past kept journals of their day-to-day agricultural and livestock work -- charting crop growth and yields, livestock head counts and the like -- in 2010, Justin Leszcz uses a more contemporary medium: his Twitter account. While @YellowTreeFarm has just shy of 200 followers as of this writing, it has no shortage of photos documenting the progress of the farm in this St. Louis suburb.
To accompany this week's story, here's a photo slideshow highlighting the various activities, crops and livestock raised on this St. Louis County farm.
