OMG! When Seth and I moved to Southern Oregon this spring we hoped to find our own piece of land and start building a homestead quickly. But clearcuts and north facing slopes were the only pieces of land in our price range, and staying optimistic was beginning to require a lot of energy.
And then, just three weeks ago an unfortunate/magical turn of events led us to partner up with a couple other folks to grow 25 acres of hemp (our dream crop) on this glorious historic ranch way up in the Siskiyou Mountains. There is gold in the earth there, wild healing herbs all over it, and lots of old timey farm equipment. And we get to live there! In a barn!
Yesterday we finished tucking in our first 100,000 seeds into soft soil, and the first of them sprouted.
It may not be our homeland, but I’m starting to believe that these seeds and sprouts will take us there.
May we all find our true homes!
