This is not just a garden tour but a love story.
I want you to meet my new boyfriend.
We started our tour of this new organic farm by walking around the barn to see the veggies growing in the field:
All of a sudden we heard the loudest, most obnoxious, funny braying coming from the barn behind us.
As I turned around, I hurried to take out my camera and get some movie footage of the furry offender, but my battery was low and I missed my chance. EEE! EEEAWWW! EEE-AWWW! Did you hear it from where you are? I’m sure it started a tsunami somewhere…, But I did get this: please hum the theme from Love Story as you view it:
(Ignore the fact that my voice seemed to go up two octaves as I spoke. Romantic chemistry can do that to you.) How cute is he? This was our first meeting but you can tell the bond was immediate. By the time he showed me his teeth I had decided his name is Eldon and he will be my valentine.
We talked some more, exchanged phone numbers, I patted his very dusty back, and then I bid him adieu. If there’s one ultra-useful secret my mother imparted to me where romance is concerned, it’s to always be aloof and keep them begging you for more. I knew I had Eldon right where I wanted him.
Aloofness works like a charm. And it sure did this time. I put my camera away, gave his wobbly lips one last nuzzle, and I walked away out of sight. Not a moment later my beloved was letting out more Brays From Hell. How loud can a mini donkey be? Yowsa. I believe he was saying, Come back my true love! Come back! Only louder.
With Eldon safely in the distance, longing for his true love (me), I will now show you the rest of the gardens:
Here’s the home and storefront for the organic veggies for sale:
There are several greenhouses not yet in use:
Beside a barn:
Lots of chickens sunning outside their barn:
A view from the house (please ignore Eldon yelling in the background):
Gorgeous beds near the porch:
Shady place to sit:
Farewell, Eldon! See you soon. Somehow. Some way. EEE-AWWW!
