URBAN rANCHING WITH A SMALL ‘r’
Lest you think that we live on unbounded acres of land……although we technically are a ranch: Webster’s definition: “a farm or ranchlike enterprise that raises a single crop or animal”, ours is definitely in the lower case. We raise lemons and belong to a co-op which harvests and sells our crop. Small and urban help to define who we are and what we do – we have limited acreage and are five minutes from the supermarket. Once home, however, we feel as though we live in the country……….
the lemon orchard
the mustard field behind the house
the metal roofed outbuilding
and the girls next door
abundant fruit in the family orchard
my ’51 Ford convertible
wreaths of barbed wire
all ingredients in the life we love.
