A Dream Come True

Thu Jul 20, 2006 11:26 pm

I've fulfilled a longtime dream. I've bought a 4 bedroom house on 3.76 acres of land out in the country. Half wooded. I want to turn it into a mini-farm/ranch. We're moving in this weekend! I feel like Oliver Douglas. "Green acres is the place to be. Faaarrm livin' is the life for me. Land spreadin' out so far and wide, keep Manhatten just gimme that countryside." :)

Pete, Congratulations...a real dream come true :D get yoursel some Leycesteria Formosa (better known as Pheasant Berry or Himalayan Honeysuckle) planted.

Looks a little like bamboo. It self seeds grows to about eight feet tall in no time and flowers. In a couple of years you could have tens of thousands to sell.

We started a little business with the plant and sold thousands..on a small scale! You have far more space. You could green Texas!

Oh yes, get a shotgun for the Pheasants. The Victorian landed gentry grew the plant to attract the birds. Unfortunately where we live the Starlings love the seeds!!!

You have a lot of work in store...it'll keep you fit :D
