i moved out of the suburbs a couple of years ago onto 10 acres. i just wanted to be able to have a rooster, shoot a gun, pop fireworks, let the vegetables grow where they wish.. maybe walk around after dark in my undies without anybody called the DOMUS. i've had a lot of failures in the last 2 years, but it has been a lot of fun and has cost me less than it did in town as well. I've shared this "try 100 things and 2 will work" idea with many people as they itch their chigger bites and stare at my dead apple trees and wilted seedlings, but damn if I haven't had a surprise or two. it's all worth it when you find a huge frog living in your spinach patch or see bluebirds nesting under your eaves. i don't know if i've even tried 100 things yet, but 2 things have happened, i'm happier and all my friends would rather hang out at my place. cheers, Paul. this is the proper perspective.
