Fangboner Farms

I never realized how dark out it really is

In the city, there are pretty much always lights around. Streetlights, car lights, house lights - it seems like you can never find a truly dark spot.  Well unless you count the time I was walking down 42nd Street in New York City by myself at 3am a long time ago.  But I digress.

So the other night I got out of my car.  It wasn't that late - 10pm or so - but it was pitch black out in our turnaround. As I crossed the yard, it happened.  I dropped my keys.  So soft I couldn't hear them fall, but I could certainly hear the loud not-so-nice word I said.  

I knelt down, felt around and tried to find them. It was so dark I couldn't really even see my hand. And of course it was near one of our numerous flower beds.  So I crawled around, feeling the ground and suddenly found something I wasn't looking for.  I believe they call them slugs.  Felt like a huge snot ball.  I know, sounds gross, but you get the picture. I screamed, tried to get it off of my hand and it stuck, like well, snot.

So after wiping my hand on the grass numerous times, I finally freed myself from my country captor. And pulled out my handy cell phone and found my keys.

Lesson learned.  We put solar lights up and down the walkway.  And I now put my keys in my purse before I get out of the car.  

Now as long as I don't lock my purse in the car.

And So It Begins

Hey world!  Welcome to Fangboner Farms.

Fangboner Farms started as a hobby that has turned into this whole new lifestyle.  Midwestern girl meets Southern boy, sparks fly and Fangboner Farms is born.  Well there is a bit more than that to the story.  Here's the scoop:

Fangboner Farms. It’s all about the unexpected.  It’s about contrasts and opposites.  It’s about a Southern boy, a Midwestern girl.  About rural and urban.  Salt and pepper.  Sweet and spicy. Hard rock, smooth jazz. Cold wine, hot food. Blended together to create unique experiences in wine, gardens and spice.  Get the unexpected.  Experience Fangboner Farms.

Roland and I have a great relationship and started a business but the real story is that I moved to Fangboner Farms and gave up city water for this boy!  What an adjustment - bugs, weird critters (that's what they call them out here. In the city we call them rats) and what's the whole thing with a leach field and septic tanks?  Seriously?

 So my adventure begins...
