Home & Garden

One thing we like to do here on our hill is grow a garden.  We don’t profess to be a fully self sustainable hobby farm but we do operate on the principles of self reliance.  Growing much of our own fruit and vegetables are part of that exercise.  Raising meat goats are the newest part of this endeavor.  Our goal is ultimately to give to our children and our grandchildren a work ethic and testimony of hard work and self reliance that we just couldn’t do when we lived in town.


My wife Susan is the master chef and gardener and really the brains of the outfit here.  Over the coming weeks and months we’ll describe our gardening techniques, our successes, and our failures.  I am sure Susan will also inject the occasional recipe for folks who like to cook.  I know I have benefited from her cooking to the tune of about 50 pounds since we got married.  Not good for my physique but it sure tasted good.
