"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

Compost for Orchard site


I am moving our original compost piles(2) to one area we plan to plant apple trees. The best advice for moving to a climate so extreme as the desert southwest, was to check out the neighborhood and see what the neighbors are growing. Then you know what you can grow.

So we know that apple, pecan, pistachios, and pomegranate trees grow for sure here. So we are going to plant the above listed trees. I do know that some friends in town have a peach tree, and another has a cherry tree, but in the canyon area we live in are the 4 listed. So our orchard is no longer on the drawing board but in the soil/ground prep stage! Yay!
