Life on the cloud farm. Small farming and self sufficiency, organics, permaculture and all that stuff.
"We must achieve the character and acquire the skills to live much poorer than we do. We must waste less. We must do more for ourselves and for each other. It is either that or continue merely to think and talk about changes that we are inviting catastrophe to make. The great obstacle is simply this: the conviction that we cannot change because we are dependant on what is wrong. But that is the addict's excuse, and we know that it will not do." —Wendell Berry

Pulled these two out of the veggie garden today. They are giant atlantic pumpkins. These are the breed that holds the-largest-in-the-world title each year. As you can see, mine are nothing to crow about. They were not cared for at all, just plonked in to a spare space a while back and left to their own devices. I suppose if I actually manured them properly and weeded their bed I would get some serious fruit. I might give it a go after the wet. It would be nice to have something to put on display at the local show this year.
