"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Schnepf Farm in Arizona

Bill and I visited Schnepf Farm in Arizona.  This was a visit to help us to see how we could grow the farm into something all the while maintaining our simple life.

I enjoyed the open air dining that Schnepf Farm had...

Schnepf Farms You Pick...
even in November

Here is the basket of kale, turnips, radishes, sugar pumpkins, lettuce, spinach, 
and black eyed peas, that we picked. 
(they charge by the pound!)

I loved this grove of trees with the hay bales lining its path
as it offered the perfect place to rest for a moment.

Oh the sidewalks were so clever!  

Simple and interesting for an outdoor farm walkway
A path like this is absolutely possible as many give away remnants of 
projects...and our visit to Schnepf farm gave me so many ideas.

We have always had a back burner idea of having a you-pick farm with a variety of things going on...and recently we feel we are closing in on this goal.

Funny how the farm began as a place so we could survive due to a crisis, and now it is becoming so much more!
