The Family Farm
***

There has been a break in the passage of knowledge through the generations of my family.  The last homesteading farmer in my line died in '88, when I was 4.  I have two memories, that are more like moments really, of  my time with him. His children decided not to carry on in his footsteps, and his knowledge was lost on them. Now here I am, 29, and wishing more than anything that he could covey it to me. But he cant, so...

"I don't know nothin."

How about reading Mother Earth magazines, talking to people in your community who are involved in living that way? Bet you can attract a whole slew of folks who'd be more than happy to share their knowledge and experiences with you....Lynn

The farm looks great so far! I tend to lean a lot on my father-in-law for gardening advice. He's been farming his entire life. Lately, since everything is planted, his only advice is to "Leave It Alone". He'll yell that to me over the phone, via email, or over my shoulder when he sees me fussing in the beds. Anyway, looks like you're doing a fantastic job. i'm envious of all that space!

Your farm does look great! You've accomplished so much since you first blogged about finding the place. It's such a sweet thing to observe from afar.

You have a blog. You have people visiting it. I think the universe is telling you something?
