Today I worked a 12 hour shift, so no pretty pictures as I leave in the dark and return home in the dark. So I thought I’d ramble on and address the naming of this blog, Dark Star Farm.
So, for those of you who know us, you also know we don’t really live on a farm. Or do we??
From the Webster dictionary:
1farm noun, often attributive \ˈfärm\
Definition of FARM
1 obsolete : a sum or due fixed in amount and payable at fixed intervals
2: a letting out of revenues or taxes for a fixed sum to one authorized to collect and retain them
3: a district or division of a country leased out for the collection of government revenues
4: a tract of land devoted to agricultural purposes
5a : a plot of land devoted to the raising of animals and especially domestic livestock
5b: a tract of water reserved for the artificial cultivation of some aquatic life form <a fish farm>
OK, so we kinda squeak into the definition under #4 and #5a, right? The truth of the matter is we grow so many things; puppies, birds of all sizes, veggies, children. I mean what else could you call such a conglomeration? Plus you never know what the future holds, right? Hopefully, one of these for me….
All in good time, I hope….
