We love working on the farm, but we are really excited to work on our own farm. We are using a real estate agent (or two) and looking at properties. While the ideal is to be debt free, we are willing to settle for having a very low monthly payment so that we can have flexibility to do what we want without feeling overly pressured to make money. While I recognize making money to be a part of life, I want to assure that it never dictates my life. I like farming and I like teaching at the community college. I’m going to stick with that and go from there. I like the variety that it provides. I don’t do well with consistency.
I haven’t been posting as much as I would like. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, it gets a little boring when I say, “we weeded and harvested all day… again.” While I enjoy weeding and harvesting, I don’t feel it is a valuable post. Additionally, I am very busy with farming and being an adjunct instructor, so time is limited.
I’m going to try and change that. I want to post more, but only stuff worth reading. I hope that my blog will become a reference for people hoping to do their own thing and live sustainably. In that light (and as I do research for the farm I want to own), I am going to start making reference pages of crops that we are going to grow. I will start soon with Jerusalem Artichokes. I hope to provide resources and insight on growing the crops (especially as I plant them and work with them). Gotta go, there are squash to be harvested, cleaned and stored for winter.
