"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

Farm Life

This used to be the billy goat pen.  
In fact, it was Pepe's pen. 
He was legendary on the farm!
For five years this pen housed goats and the ground was 
enriched by the cocoa pebble plops...and now it is ready.

This year this will be named the Hanging Gardens of Pepe as we
are going to grow our zucchini, cucumbers, yellow squash, and gourds

The desert hasn't sprung into spring yet.  It happens almost overnight.
 While waiting I noted a fence roll awaiting some important farm job, or
not so important job!

 This tailgate is part of one of our newest acquisitions...to haul trash to
the dump.  Yep.  Bill is amazing in his finds for the farm. 
He will wire the lights and there we go!

Tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree has new lyrics on
the farm...Tie a yellow baling rope around the old railroad tie!!

In truth, the baling rope and wire finds new purpose about the farm.

Bill and I have been prepping the farm for our gardens and look forward
to a wonderful growing season!
