Internet wasn’t ever really a big issue for us because, well, we were farmers and we cared a lot more about the pH balance in the soil than we did bandwidth. But in this day and age you’ve got to have good communication with your neighbors and the entire community and we’ve been using the web a lot to email and set prices and even find out info about changes in the farmer’s market schedule. I went to exede.com and got us satellite for the house and that’s been working out pretty well. I love being out here and it’s so quiet all the time so I can really hear myself think. I’ve been working harder on my book because things are so much easier to process and think about out here. What in the world are people thinking living all stacked on top of themselves in the city…why would people do that when there’s so much land to be had? It’s cheap, too, and you can learn to be self sustaining.
