I just ordered 6 Pink Lady Trees -and, should have fruit from them in 3-4 years from the time I get them in the ground. I grow everything organically. I’ve planted non-fruit trees to the point that I have a small 6 acre forest in my back-yard. I love the shade, privacy, and peaceful environment – it’s my own little forest, perfect for meditating in, hiking in, or taking refuge in when I don’t want to be found.
I was inspired to plant Pink Lady Apples, because of having tasted them a couple years ago, at an organic grocery. I never much cared for eating apples, but having eaten “Pink Lady” apples, changed all that for me. They are really the best apple I’ve ever tasted. I’ll patiently wait 3-4 years for the treasure of the Pink Lady.
I own a small-scale farm in Tennessee, and it has been a real blessing for me. The cost of living is inexpensive compared to other markets. The town I live in is very small, but theres a small college town 11 miles away. I like the country and it’s remoteness, and peacefulness, -and, I am only 16 miles from a National Recreational area by Kentucky lake and Lake Barkely. There’s lots of land there to go hiking, biking, swimming, canoing, boating, etc. etc., and the people are friendly.
Though I haven’t lived consistently in this place because I find it near impossible to find work that pays anything decent compared to St. Louis, or Florida, or other more expensive markets (even Nashville isn’t right for me particularly, though it’s only a couple hours drive away. But I dearly love it here. Also, I like to travel a lot so it is a place of refuge between working and traveling.
If you plan on moving here do your research in finding a place near major or international airports, as it gets expensive to travel or even parking at the airport in Nashville, and also Nashville isn’t a major hub for many international destinations. You just have to make sure you are desired as an employee instead of the situation I find where you’re at the employer’s mercy for keeping a job.
Sunday (Day after tomorrow) I’m going to go out hiking in my woods and take a nap in my hammock and enjoy the beautiful spring weather!
I want to do my sadhana (Sree Lalita Sahasranama) everyday just before daybreak.
