Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre
Start a mini farm on a quarter acre or less, provide 85 percent of the food for a family of four and earn an income.
Mini Farming describes a holistic approach to small-area farming that will show you how to produce 85 percent of an average family’s food on just a quarter acre—and earn $10,000 in cash annually while spending less than half the time that an ordinary job would require. Even if you have never been a farmer or a gardener, this book covers everything you need to know to get started: buying and saving seeds, starting seedlings, establishing raised beds, soil fertility practices, composting, dealing with pest and disease problems, crop rotation, farm planning, and much more. Because self-suf?ciency is the objective, subjects such as raising backyard chickens and home canning are also covered along with numerous methods for keeping costs down and production high. Materials, tools, and techniques are detailed with photographs, tables, diagrams, and illustrations.
And it's true, most artists don't daydream about making great art - they daydream about having made great art. What artist has not experienced the feverish euphoria of composing the perfect thumbnail sketch, first draft, negative, or melody - only to run headlong into a stone wall trying to convert that tantalizing hint into the finished mural, novel, photograph, sonata. The artist's life is frustrating not because the passage is slow, but because he imagines it to be fast.
Another piece from Art & Fear. I have to return it to the library soon but I think a trip to Powell's may be in line.
I particularly like the final line of this excerpt as it embodies a lot of the frustration I have felt at times, as well as that I have seen in most other photographers who strive to make their photography something more than it is. We all know that success, in its varied forms, takes hard work, perseverance and often years, if not a lifetime, of dedication. Nonetheless, this does not prevent us from oft wishing otherwise. I am reminded of a RMSP lecture I attended once. The lecturing photographer, Craig Tanner, gave an inspiring speech, the kind that makes you want to rush right out and accomplish your own great images. He had just completed a coffee table book of images from Georgia that was quite impressive and I remember thinking how much I would love to do such a book. Then he explained that (disregarding all the other years he had spent in photography) this book alone was the product of shooting around the state of Georgia exclusively for over five years. Which sounds like a long time, but relatively speaking, considering some works of art are literally the product of a lifetime, is probably still a seductively short amount of time.
We all know that patience is a virtue in photography. But generally when we are discussing the virtues of patience we usually are referring to short-term patience. The kind that keeps us in a specific location taking photo after photo. Or the kind that gets us up every day for two weeks to catch that one spot in just the right conditions. When we discuss patience though, we rarely talk about that kind of patience that keeps us doing that over years, the kind that carries us through our dry spells and setbacks. That allows us to push forward with the same momentum we did when the excitement of first beginning still rallied us.
(22/365) betraying my fellow hipsters by buying from corporate america
sorry, fellow hipsters, but i went to starbucks today. oops.
(p.s. why the hell does chrome not have "starbucks" in its dictionary?)
there's this nice cafe/soup 'n' sandwich shop back in amherst called "souper bowl" and they make the most incredible bubble tea. it's owned by a married couple and they have this little girl that is just adorable, and typically contained in a playpen behind the counter. i guess because the mother is asian they sell bubble tea (at least that's my reasoning 'cause my hometown is like 90% white and we have no bubble tea/boba tea whatever). i'm such a regular there that the one time they ran out of strawberry tea, she told me as soon as i came in the door. i mean, it was okay since i love them and just bought raspberry instead, but it's nice to be known as a regular somewhere.
i miss souper bowl. a lot. i think that's the thing i miss the most about college - not my friends, or the classes, or the relative sense of independence or the change of scenery - souper bowl. and the ability to go to a cafe alone and not get looks like people assume you are a leper. because it's normal to be a snooty college student drinking your bubble tea and reading a book on the patio.
oh. and also, sad as it is, i still miss you.
i wonder how you're doing at home. i have good days, where i think about you hardly at all, and then bad days like today, where i woke up from a dream where the person you were when we were together and the person you became after we broke up were talking to me at the same time about each other. and i liked some things about each of you. it was so strange. but mostly, it just made me miss you. and being loved by you.
i do not like feeling like this.
i hope you're having fun. really, i do. i want you to be happy. i just hope i don't have to watch that next year, because i'm afraid it will just crush me.
i still love you. i feel like i should stop that. but it hasn't seemed to be getting any better yet.
i know if you ever read this somehow you will think i'm crazy. i'm not. i promise i'm trying to let go.
