MAXimum Greens hit a road block with its new half acre, but another opportunity opened up that is far better: a lot closer to my house, better soil (I’m told it’s some of the richest black dirt you’ll find), and over an acre. I have to deal with some local zoning issues, but my town is pretty good about applying common sense, and this land has sat undeveloped for a hundred years and there are no better uses for it, so I’m optimistic it’ll work out. Max’s business plan now includes a small nursery for herbs and a produce stand. I hope to start planting in early April, if the weather cooperates.
Remember the hype about our uber-progressive northern neighbor, Canada, who was going to let all our rejected immigrants in? It turns out they’re having second thoughts . . . and probably were never sincere about it in the first place. That, anyway, according to this snide piece. It makes sense, of course. Every country has a right to control its borders. The mere fact that the left disputes it is dispositive testimony to its dysfunctionality.del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg | Facebook | Technorati | Google | StumbleUpon | Window Live | Tailrank | Furl | Netscape | Yahoo | BlinkList
