So . . . here goes.
I dream of a farm about 10-20 acres where we grow blueberries! I know, you thought I would be writing about my handmade items, my artistry dreams! Just wait, I will get to that---.
We would have two houses on this farm, one for me and my husband and one for my youngest daughter's family. We would have a barn, although not so much for animals, as for the equipment needed for the operation. It would have a shed also to house the retail sales to passers-by. Besides the fields of blueberries, it would also have a large vegetable garden, and a large flower garden, where my daughter and I (and my grandsons-while they are still little) would spend a lot of time. There would be gardening and canning, and cooking and lots of family time! The shed would be made over as a little country shop with all kinds of homemade and country items. All of my (and my daughter's) handmade items, would have a physical shop home. It would also house the u-pick operation in the lean-to outside.
I am a person who really does not like down time! I must be busy all the time! So, this dream of a farm to care for, large gardens with canning chores, and flowers to deliver to the nearby stores and, maybe even a farmers market, would keep me busy in the day time, with all of the evening hours to work on my creativity (not to mention the winter days when gardening was quiet)!
I could go on, with details but I will not. You get the picture.
OK . . .now, I still have that gift to give for anyone who participates. Be sure to come back and comment about your post to win! (details in August 5th post).
