A game! If you can correctly guess the truths about myself in this post and the one lie, you win a free copy of Daisy Chain. See my post below about the new book, and do wach the trailer.
It's springtime here on the farm, or days away from the start of spring, which means the crops are going in the soil. We're going completely organic this year. I started studying organic farming back in the '70s and had quite a plot of fresh veggies I could feed my kids on a city lot. My entire backyard was a garden. I learned from my Dad growing his tomatoes and peppers in a small inner city yard.
I also lived on my grandfather's farm in Ohio when I was a young child and remember snapping peas on the porch with my step-grandmother, Elva. I also watched her wring the chickens' necks on the clothesline, dress 'em and fry 'em up for the dinner table.
So here I am back on a farm, growing my own food, trying to be frugal, a good steward of the planet, and all that.
Now, here are some more things about me. Pick two you think are true and one you think is a lie? Then post here or email me.
1. I was fat when I was a kid.
2. My favorite veggie is corn.
3. I got kicked out of Catholic school.
4. My favorite song is "I Can't Tell You Why," originally by the Eagles.
5. I love to write poetry.
The contest ends this Monday, the 15th! I'll post the answers then, after I pick a winner.
