Backyard farmers by necessity: self-sufficient & debt-free

When Myrna and Earl Fincher married 53 years ago they started farming their yard "out of necessity". Today, the Finchers make a living selling their organic produce to restaurants and at the local farmers' market twice a week for much of the year. They had no experience as farmers, but learned by trial and error.

End The Fat
70 pounds lost and counting! Get in shape for the revolution!

Get Prepared!

"forced" into liberty

This is what I mean about Jubilee. We are all going to have to get back to simple living. We can choose it and make it a big "party" or we can have it forced on us and have it be a big famine.
I hope to be partying with Earl and Myrna.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.


thanks for sharing that one!

These people

are criminals and subversives imo. They should of spent more time shopping, drinking, and gambling as with the many, many other people do in society. Their way of life is repugnant to dependent peoples all over. They are obviously selfish people.


They need Bank of America to refinance a loan

If they were truly American
