Internet in the country is still more often than not limited to dial-up speeds. By today’s standards that’s really slow. A large, high resolution picture can take 15 or 20 minutes to download verses minutes or even seconds for city folk.
The past week or so there has been two major electronic communications events occurring here on Tiny Farm. First (my hero) Harold has been upgrading his small company’s network of wireless internet towers, transceiver service and Michelle L and family have been doing a major renovation project.
Bottom line is, Michelle L. husband, (my) grandson and two great grandsons have been TV and internetless for more than a week. How have they managed to survive?.
Much to my surprise. All are spending more, much more time out of doors without the expected whining about no TV, No whizz bang games, Eeeek… No Facebook!
Grin … frogs, snails, puppy dog tails, bugs, grasshoppers, crickets, and toads have all come under the close observation of young boy’s eyes. Worms and pond catfish and no longer safe from finding the pointed end of a hook.
All those folk next door have discovered that garden dirt covered hands, knees and toes is to be enjoyed and should not to be avoided at all cost. A massive planting plan is in progress. Six ‘white’ Creapmurtels, six Magnolias and an assortment of Fall blooming perennial flowers have new homes.
I just love it when a plan comes together.
Life in the country is good.
Happy Fall gardening
