Blackberries PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Blackberries are another great crop for Tennessee. All you have to do is pick them, for they grow wild on many farms. Briars, as we call them, can be a thorn in your side. And hands, and arms, and feet. But blackberries make up for the scratches with abundant fruit in July.
The Miss California Controversy PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Miss California stirred up a hornet’s nest when she took the position that marriage is between a man and a women. Immediately, the left-wing population launched their firey darts at this courageous lady, calling her the B-word and all sorts of degrading names. However, to her credit, she was on two sides- God’s and nature’s.  From the Book of Genesis to the Book of Revelation, marriage is always between a man and a women. Furthermore, the law of nature puts down this perverted notion about marriage. These left-wing perverts are not as smart as dogs and cats. Animals adhere to nature, while liberal freaks and change agents seek to circumvent it.
Apprenticeship Program PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
Long Hungry Creek Farm has an apprenticeship program, sort of. In an effort to expand interest in local food production, we encourage young folk to experience life on a working organic farm. People come and go through regularly. Some of our apprentices have gone on to start their own farms, and some realize that farming isn’t for them.
How will you know if you don’t try? Farm life offers great lessons even if you don’t take it up as a career life calling. The demand for local, organic produce is greater than the supply, so there is a huge opportunity here for enjoyable employment. We have a lot of fun growing vegetables. We have never used grant money; that farm pays it’s own way.
For 30 years, friends and visitors have helped on the farm. Eventually I hired a few friends, and we work on something most days. We don’t depend on labor from others, but appreciate when it happens. It frees us up a bit to either get extra stuff done, or relax a bit more than we would otherwise.
Running Down America PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
I’m appalled at the number of liberal Democrats who are running down America. I’m reminded of the old country music song which says of those who were talking evil about this country, “If you don’t love it, leave it.” After all, the borders are open between the United States and Mexico. The liberals know that, for they are the ones who want a wholesale movement of immigrants to this country, knowing they can count on their votes. But what will happen when illegal immigrants outnumber the rest of us, including the liberal Democrats and some fat cat Republicans? What is even more distressing is our own President who ran down America when he was in France. What the power should have said in response is this; “Look Mr. President, it was your nation that delivered us from the German armies during World War II, and many of the American soldiers who defended us died in so doing and are buried here in French soil. I’ll pray for our President, but how can I respect him when he runs down the Country I love so much and has been so good to me?
Spring Garden PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, May 5, 2009
Our spring garden is finally out of my mind and in the ground. We had to work some soil before it was thoroughly dry, and are now dealing with the subsequent clods. They got raked away from the row and into the middles, where the tractor tire and cultivators can break them up.
