After visiting this property we learned that we were actually in the midst of a lot of unusual birds and we didn’t see any of them: we were too busy walking briskly to avoid the mosquitoes. Darn!
This farm house is about a mile from the road. It’s on a hill surrounded by perennial gardens, veggies gardens, farm fields, forests, and a river. Rather ideal if you ask me.
Raised beds with lots of straw in between. To me, the (minimum) perfect distance between raised beds is the same distance from the knee bone to the toes, so that you can kneel down and work unencumbered.
A river runs through it. I neglected to photograph the giant beaver dam. It was impressive. I noticed the huge range of bird songs and calls while standing here, but the buzz of blood thirsty mosquitoes drove me away (it had just rained and they were hungry).
This huge bed has six types of perennials that, we were told, are all going to bloom at once. I would love to see that. It was about 50×50′. Wild! I think I saw coneflower leaves but I don’t know what else was cooking there.
Beautiful dry stone wall by the entrance.
Apparently the neighbors across the street like a LOT of lawn! I’m guessing they don’t get the same bird show over there. Can you imagine how long it takes to mow? Wowsers. I’ll take the farm instead, thanks.
