Get Behind the Mule

"Pin your ear to the wisdom post
Pin your eye to the line
Never let the weeds get higher
than the garden
Always keep a sapphire in your mind
Always keep a diamond in your mind

You got to get behind the mule
in the morning and plow" -Tom Waits

And make pickles, dig potatoes, smoke salmon, clean barn, and make plow one row at a time.


  1. Don't forget the fruit liqueurs, you have to find time to make the Fruit Liqueurs! :) I have just made a batch of Blackberry Brandy - essential for medicinal purposes!

  2. Lucy -I've frozen some berries with the idea of making liqueurs later in the year when I will (hopefully) have more time. A rose wine I made last year that I was expecting to be AMAZING! turned out to be BLECH! Now I'm trying to figure out what to do with 5 bottles of not-really-drinkable's rather discouraging.
