A visit to the farm

I went to the U-pick place again yesterday and stocked up on peaches. Now I hope to start feeling better so I can get them canned...

The farm was so interesting. They had cows, donkeys and goats. Chickens and of course the orchards full of nectarines, peaches, apples and pears. That's where I will go next month to get pears for canning too. I saw a sign that said "pumpkin cannon every Saturday night in October". Might have to check that out too! It's such a different lifestyle than mine. A lot slower, more natural. I like the feel of the country life. I liked picking my own fruit. I wondered about taking care of all that property, fruit trees and animals. Actually, I could do without the animals, they kind of scare me. Maybe I was some type of farmer in a previous life?

I feel the same way. Must be in the genes. I think some extreme laziness and ADD is also in my genes, though, and that is why I could NEVER survive farm life (nor could any poor animals entrusted to me)!
