Possibility...


Our neighbor (the one who lets us wander at will) has kindly plowed this corner of our property. Limerick plans to grow grapes on this sunny slope, and I plan to grow blueberries along it's eastern side. In between, the boys will mound dirt into little hills for pumpkins and watermelon. The soil here is very poor; the top soil was stripped away and sold before we lived here. Despite that, I believe that this little plot of dirt is rich with possibility.

Oh, how wonderful! I am sure that despite the barren soil, you and your family will have it turned into a bountiful spot of land in no time! Congratulations on the new venture!

Rapunzel, I'm so lucky to have a neighbor with a good heart, a tractor and some time on his hand. lol! This would have been too much to do by hand, though a lot of work will still go into the planting and tending. Thanks for the nice comments! :)

Such a positive way of thinking; I like your phrase, "rich with possibility."
