He caught Katie’s attention as we drove the back roads of the Skagit valley, and when their eyes locked she slammed on the brakes, caught in the moment despite her loving husband sitting by her side. She was barely off the road before she had leaped out of the car, run to the fence, and had fallen all over herself in a frenzied passion. This bold Romeo was a full 200 lbs of well marbled meat ambling cocksure over to my woman as I sat there helplessly in the passenger seat. He stuck his nose through the fence, sniffed the air, and immediately began frothing at the mouth uncontrollably.
In our last few weeks here meandering through the farmlands of western Washington, Katie has fallen head over heels for goats, sheep, and even the odd squirrel. But this was the first time I’d seen her swoon for a pig (the door’s open for snide comments here, everybody).
This morbidly obese, buck-toothed, perhaps rabid, and definitely horny swine was not the epitome of porcine beauty, but somehow it found a soft spot in Katie’s heart. Fortunately, my undying love for bacon allowed me to look past his adulterous ambitions; revenge is best served hot in a flour tortilla with scrambled eggs and a healthy dousing of Melinda’s hot sauce.
But I didn’t come here today to talk about breakfast. I came to talk about a farm. Our new found agrarian surroundings have us thinking about our next steps and how we can incorporate more food growing, animal husbandry (no animal wifery, though, that’s gross!), and sustainable land management.
The winds are blowing us towards a few acres with a big garden, some fruit trees, and maybe some livestock some day. We’re on the hunt for a few good acres, and our Jibe is heading towards a farm in the country, hunting game, fishing, and foraging wild foods. Of course, I also hope to build a boat, and we have many new rivers to float and bays to sail, so a life rooted in the soil will always be balanced by days floating atop the water.
Love this post! Katie, you would LOVE the obese pigs here in Tonga…Mark might be wandering as a lonely bachelor through the streets, though, since you’d be distracted often by the numerous livestock crossing the main town’s roads.
Miss you guys, and can’t wait to hear about the farm hunt progress!

Hi mates, pleasant piece of writing and nice urging commented
here, I am genuinely enjoying by these.
Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and
gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and
screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
off topic but I had to tell someone!

info. I’m satisfied that you simply shared
