Anyway, it seems obvious to me that Mr. Denver never actually worked on a farm, or he never would have said what he said. Laid back it ain't. And though I can't claim that even I work on a farm, since I don't own 40 acres or a tractor, I think I've got a good taste on this little plot. And I can tell you that I'm busy, busy, busy.
This month, at some point in the middle, marks 2 years of our being here at Chicken Scratch. We bought the house because we fell in love with the property, it was large, and we couldn't afford a farm around here. We turned this house from a "suburban" home in kind of suburban-rural area, to a working mini-farm to support ourselves and some others, too. I was sitting outside the other night as it cooled off, just looking at things, and I thought "what an accomplishment". Most of what's here I put here with my own two hands, and that's the truth. Yes, I have help when I need it, I do. But most of it has been me. This is my chosen path, and so I leave it to me to make it happen. And happening it is.
This movie is a little before and after for you. What it looked like when we got here to what it looks like now. You can see how far we've come. Of course, this isn't a stopping point for us, just a nice time to reflect and take a look and appreciate. I hope you enjoy it.
PS--the song's a little skippy, I'm not sure why. It'll right itself.
