DPP day 12

Written by
Floret

walked another farm yesterday.
we’re on the hunt for our forever home.can you believe it !?
a place to stretch out, plant up and call our very own.
this little farm had nearly everything we need: a cute and liveable old house, great soil, a pond, over 10 acres of farmable land, it’s certified organic and is in our price range. 
its one drawback? the front half of the property has standing water, the kind that comes from underground during wet periods or when the river is high. 
with the way the climate is changing, it seems bad weather is more and more common. in our soggy corner of the world, excess moisture can be a big ole issue so i expect this farm will be wet quite often.
while a little discouraging, winter is actually the perfect time to tour properties. without all of the green to hide their flaws, we see everything in glaring clarity.
i have waited a very longtime to realize the dream of owning my own farm!
wish us luck will you!? we can use all the good juju you can muster : )

    I know you must be thrilled to bits!! I'm so happy for you – think of all the perennials….

    Be sure to put drinking and irrigation water on the top of your list of things to check. And if you can find a place with good fencing already up that's a big plus!!

    Good luck!!

    Oh, wishing you the exact right place with my whole heart!

    Buying a house is stressful enough, but a whole farm, the dream….big stuff, but you are so smart and knowledgeable I am sure you will make the right decisions. Do you have a resolute list of 'compromisable' and 'non-compromisable' – helped us with house buying. How exciting tho'! xx
