This blog is intended to be my farm journal. Here I will post regular (whatever that means) updates about what is happening here at Sam Hill.
I love to garden, raise pigs, work with leather, and do other "back to the basics" things.
Born in the 60s, I am married and have 7 kids. My wife is Japanese; we met at college in the states. We lived in Osaka, Japan, from 1992 until 2002. We have lived in the Ozarks since that time. In Japan, I was in education: corporate training and private high school. Now, I teach English as a Second Language at the local K-8 school. I have taught high school Spanish, as well.
Same shot, just about a month later. The potatoes are about ready to dig. The sweet potatoes are coming on. The okra is starting to get taller. The squash is really starting to cover the ground and the field corn is as tall as an elephant's eye. (Well, maybe a baby elephant.)
