When you pick up from a place like this:
And drop into one like this:
Well, it’s paradise if growing things is a passion.
So, after reading Julia Morton’s book about all the neat stuff I could grow here. And looking at the limited agricultural potential on the home place, it was time to pay a visit to our long held undeveloped land.
From the road, not too bad.
And maybe even a fruit tree already growing there?
But I think it’s going to take much work and time before exotic fruit orchards are growing there. Yep, it’s a grower’s paradise! And there’s an abundance already here.
After owning the land for more than a decade, I sure wish I’d started planting some trees sooner.
My friend Bob said that it looks like all we wanted was 40 acres and a mule to retire on. I laughed at the time, convinced its was true for my wife. But I think she’s converted me to her way of thinking.
I’m a little short of 40 acres. And I’ve been told about a few other shortcomings along the way. But just how much does a mule cost anyhow? :)
