Welcome to the ramblings of a fifty-something suburban "farmer"

Hoping that if you should stumble upon this blog my daily musings might bring a little smile to your day.

One more time

Realizing that so many of you have lost sleep and had anxiety attacks because of the absence of postings on this all important blog I have decided to resume posting to save the universe from complete collapse. Looking around maybe I'm too late. Oh well, maybe next time. Any ways here goes. Upon my return from Honduras I began my new trek towards self sufficiency. It's going pretty well and I figure I can be completely self sufficient by 2065. Of course I'll be worm food by then but I'll be self sufficient worm food. I have spent quite a bit of time creating a raised bed garden and we should even be able to have lettuce for our salad by next week.
I started Clearing some trees from my back lot to make a market garden for next year .We had four down when one of my neighbors came over and starting grilling me about my decision to remove some of her woods. In as polite a tone as I could muster I explained that these were my woods and maybe she should go find some other trees to hug (hope she gets a splinter). Ironically looking at her property I see lots of lawn and only a couple of trees ,HHMMMM. I figure that there will probably be a national geographics team here soon to report about the slash and farm methods of suburban land barons . Was that a horned owl in the tree?
