We don’t live on a real “farm”. We don’t even have Prickly Pears here. But we grow people and sometimes other things.

This blog focuses mostly on my life, with moments of humor and sadness. Occasionally, I choose to comment on the modern world and social issues. Often I’ll write about specific things that we do here at Prickly Pear Farms (PPF) and explain how we do them.  This path involves a great deal of trial and error, but I will attempt to keep the errors light. I hope to provide at least one article each week.

PPF is not a farm in the traditional sense. Every year we shall attempt to cultivate vegetables and fruits. Some years we may try our hand at raising animals. Every week we grow more on the path of parenting, planting, and progress. I’d love to have you join us on the journey.
