Busy Time

Life sure has been busy at the farm. After a very dry and hot early summer, August has been shaping up to be a very hot,wet and muggy affair. Sounds great, eh? The grass is growing thick and long. The chickens are eating well. The gardens are growing and producing many fresh batches of salsa. The fort sits waiting... being abused by the spiders that have taken over our world. Everywhere you go, a web catches your ear... strews itself across your nose... and sticks to your face and arms binding you in its flight. The mere fact that spiders fly is an amazing thing to observe. And speaking of amazing... the squirrels own the world, and every tree has nuts bursting forth for them to enjoy... in just about the most wasteful manner possible. But our fort stands strong from their dropping nut onslaught. Nothing will defeat us!

Not our dripping wet condensation consumed air conditioning which has lost 10% efficiency in the past two weeks due to the moisture in the air. Not our increased enclosure indoors away from the grimm conditions to be endured outside. Not the rising temperature in the lake which tempts us from our deck being blazed hot like desert sands. Nothing! Not even the failure of business #2, our worm farming effort, due to our inability to maintain climate conditions adequate to worm survival.

We continue working, traveling, building businesses, ideas, relationships, stories.

It is a busy time.
