This is a series of posts that I wrote back in 2006 on living with less stuff. Check them out: liv011Living #2liv031liv04

What’s Growing on Coal Creek Farm

Chives

This little farm is a magical place in the spring.  I love to watch all the stuff that starts shootin’ out of the ground.

Red Asparagus

I didn’t plant this asparagus patch…..I bought it……I mortgaged it.  This is the most expensive asparagus patch in the history of asparagus patches.

Green Asparagus

We are not responsible for 98%….no, wait…99% of the beautiful things that force themselves from the earth on the farm.  But, we are fully responsible for that pig pen you see in the background.  Please forgive us.

Blackberries

We are the benefactors of the labor of another’s hands.  Every year we try to add to the wonders of the farm.  Sometimes I’m afraid we’ll mess it all up (refer back to the pig pen).

Cherry Tree

I did not plant these, but I made six pies from the cherries it gave me last year.

Apple Tree

Again, didn’t plant it.  But I still have apple butter in my freezer, thank you very, very much.

Red Grapes

I made grape jelly and then started an IV line for my 7yo.  He lived on my grape jelly until it was all gone.  I’m not sure if I can make enough grape jelly for that kid.

Peas

100_7406

I did plant these little guys.  Please grow, please, please, please.

Onions

100_7405

This is first year I’ve been this successful with onions, unjuns, on-yons.  I can’t wait to heave them from that dark rich soil.

Weeds

Just so we are clear.  I did not plant these.  I am not responsible, it’s not my fault.  I’m innocent!
