Humour has been the saving grace. All through out. Over the last few days,laughter has been the casualty as well as the lifeline.
Being a ‘funny’ person comes with its own set of limitations. People don’t seem to take you all that seriously at times. Or they expect you to have a pun flying out from your asshole. Well, considering the volume of my loosies, I think the puns got sunk and shot out in the dark.
Am revisiting a dream I once nourished and ate. That of being a potato farmer.
This was the genesis of all the potato dreams :
We need earthworms.
And we need potatoes.
Manure.. (Best variety of which is already produced by us, and very frequently in bulk!)
And yeah, some land!!
As far as self knows, it takes 4-5 months for potatoes to grow. Since we have 7 months at hand then, we could spend that time counting potatoes, playing with the earthworms, teaching the dogs how to play the violin, growing some other crop etc.
Coming back to earthworms. Now potatoes need to be sown 3 cms or so below the ground level, and the soil is bunched around around it, so a nice big cluster of potatoes can grow. And I don’t know much about the harvesting bit, we’ll find out more as we go.
I don’t like square fields. I think we shud grow crops in circles. It makes more sense. So one doesn’t have to walk in straight lines when one is talking to all the plants. Because the plants ought to feel secure and when they are placed in a linear hierarchy, they might feel neglected.
Potatoes are hard of hearing, you see they have ‘eyes’ but not ears. Which is why we need earthworms. Because if no one talks to the potatoes, they won’t grow to be healthy and wise. As such all of them will go to hell, considering most of them are fried or steamed. So we might as well make their underground stint enjoyable.
20322 potatoes, (I have significantly lowered the figure from the previous estimate of 20323). How much land would that take? I leave that to your technical mind.
I want animals on our farm. 32 pigs, 4 dogs, 2 cats, 9 cows, 30 hens and 15 horses.
Only the potty and pee trained animals will be allowed inside the house. (read dogs and cats)
