eating local

Back from the country.

One of the reasons we are moving is to be able to grow some of our own food.  That and be someplace where we can buy locally grown food.  It’s an agricultural community out there.  That and cattle.  At the end of our little street are fields just about as far as you can see.  Last year they grew cotton, the year before that, corn.  Our nearest neighbor has an incredible garden and he often times gives us food from it.  He brought us a cauliflower a couple of weeks ago that was twice the size of one you can buy in the store.  We’re looking forward to our own gardening bounty and to that end, we started getting the ground ready this weekend.  We had really beautiful weather for it.  Cool, but sunny.

According to the local paper, Wharton is famous for it’s sunsets.  I don’t know how true that is but we do get a lot of beautiful sunsets out there and we have a great view.  Last year we dragged the bench seat from our old pick-up truck out underneath one of the pecan trees.  That’s where we sit to watch the skyworks.


  1. Excellent sunset. Please set-up Pecan Tree cam. Thanks...db

  2. I would db, just because you asked, but I'm not that tech savy.


I opened my big mouth, now it's your turn.
