In the past, Steve has seemed slightly reluctant about this “farm thing”. But recently he has started talking about his own vision of “our” farm.

Steve loves trees, flowers and “cute” landscaping. Lately he has been telling me that he does not want our “farm” to look “farmy”. So I decided that it was time to take Steve on a little tour.

Since this whole “Homesteading” life style has caught on in the last 5 years, there has been several homes in the Arcadia neighborhood that have started growing “cute” gardens. Some of them are now even keeping chickens and goats. It takes money to build this cute look. But I knew that Steve would like it.  I bought a ticket for the tour hoping that he would agree to come with me this year.

He did.
