I’ve been racking may brain (or what’s left of it) and wearing out the keyboard trying to come up with a name for my property:

Our deed says we have 6 and some fraction acres, but the surveyor and the previous owner say it's 7. We have a lot of pine and oak, so therefore in the summer, we have a lot of shade. Seven Shady Acres was my thought, but my honey doesn't want to draw attention to how much land we have. I gotta respect the man's wishes, and am still working on a name. The soil is sandy loam, and growing anything (besides pines and oaks) has been a challenge (raised beds and soil remediation to the rescue). We are also at sea level, in the Pine Barrens of NJ.
Several Shady Acres?' 😉
