So, I had a brilliant idea. After he told me that Wisconsin is a good place to grow cranberries, I said we ought to start a cranberry farm. (As if I have the slightest idea of what goes into having a cranberry farm...) That was yesterday. Oddly enough, today he read in the local paper up there that Ocean Spray is asking all the cranberry farms in Wisconsin to expand because of the "increased global demand for cranberries"!!! I thought this was our perfect opportunity, but then Martin told me that harvesting cranberries involves wading through bogs and a whole lot of hard work, and he suggested an alternative: pumpkins!
So now our plan is to buy a piece of relatively local land around here, build ourselves a log house (another thing we've been reeealllyyy wanting to do) and have a pumpkin/christmas tree farm. Wouldn't that be GREAT?!?! Pumpkins in the fall, trees in the winter, and the rest of the year a regular job of some sort and a lot of coziness in the country. Of course, we're locked into this house for at least another few years... but hey, maybe some long-lost relative will die and leave us a fortune. Ha. Ha.
Or maybe! Someone rich person who stumbles upon this blog will say, "Wow, I have all this money and no one to give it too. I'll give it to Martin and Annie so they can make their dreams come true, as long as they promise to give me free pumpkins and Christmas trees for the rest of my life." Well, Mr. Millionaire, it's a deal!
