One year my dad planted the whole field back here with potatoes. He had a nearby neighbor help with that. The neighbor had no idea what to do with so many potatoes because he is from a country that doesn't really eat potatoes very much. Being Irish, and from around here, my dad loved potatoes more than any other food. He ate them all.
A couple of years before I got here my dad had cows back here. He eventually herded them all to a farm he had in South Dakota, so I never saw them. They were probably all turned into steaks by the time I got here.
I don't do much with the land out here. That's mostly because I grew up in the city. I'm used to a lot less land. I don't want to try to be a farmer so I let the land go kind of wild. I do cut a lot of wood though. There aren't lots of trees in this part of the country, but there are plenty for what I need.
I'm still not posting much because I injured myself right after my last post. All I was doing was moving furniture around in my living room and I hurt something in my back. The pain made me sleep for two straight days. Now I don't feel it unless I move too quickly. So I'm staying kind of close to home until I feel just a little better. I'm almost there.
I've only shown you a little bit of this place out here. Since I can really only get around close to home right now, I'll show you more of this place in my next post or two. I try not to reveal too much about my own stuff because that's kind of boring, but I have some cool nature stuff out here. I'll share more of it when I talk to you later.
