"Once in a while you find yourself in an odd situation.
You get into it by degrees and in the most natural way but, when you are right in the midst of it, you are suddenly astonished and ask yourself how in the world it all came to be."
- Kontiki by Thor Heyerdahl
Heyerdahl sums up my feelings about our farmette better than I could for myself.
We really need to name this little farmette! But we haven't hit on the perfect name and we have been at this naming game for over a year.
But the game must stop and we must land a name for this little portion of terra firma.
We joke about naming it
Google Farm - because we google everything and most of what we know we have learned through this medium.
But what if one day we needed to label a product with the name of our farm?
No, it simply will not do!
I need to make business cards to leave in strategic spots and hand out to unsuspecting friends in hopes that I might be able to sell a few of the oodles of eggs and gallons of milk that are overrunning us.
But it isn't like naming a farm is the only thing I have to do right now. There are berries to pick
a garden to weed. Oh, please don't come look at all my weeds, it is truly dreadful this year, and I am mortified. But the tomatoes are lovely!
(No, we don't grow Math-U-See cubes, though sometimes the kitchen floor looks like we might be growing them. Haha!)
We have also been Loving our Heirloom Dragon Tongue and Empress Beans.
and the Fresh Purple Stripe Garlic is absolutely amazing!!!!
Anything we don't want to eat will always be welcomed by Mama porker and her babies.
But a name?
We simply Must have a name (and it cannot have our last name in it, for various reasons).
Do you have a suggestion?
