40 Acres and a Mule
Alright, so maybe one acres and a dirty Jessica would be a more appropriate description.
My mom’s boyfriend has a friend that is a farmer and has a farm out in St. Clair. For next year, I can have an acre of land to plant on if I want to, I would just have to make the drive out there to work on it.
corn, tomatoes, bell peppers, some kind of hot peppers, green beans, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, potatoes, zucchini, summer squash, strawberries, raspberries…
et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
I’m contemplating taking them up on the offer. I would like to go out there, check things out, and see if they can show me around. Next spring is around the time when we will be looking for a house to buy and while I would rather just dig up the front yard and plant there, I am worried about how long all of the house stuff will take (our apartment lease is up in the end of May, I believe).
