Circular Gardening

My son Christopher and Joey Jackson water the potato field. The Jacksons planted 300 pounds this year and hope to harvest several thousand in return for their labor. The garden project is funded by a grant. Our soil is very silty and porous so watering is a twice daily affair. A pump draws the water from the river behind the tree line. The garden is on the outskirts of the village and yes, bears do frequent the area. You don’t water the garden without a rifle at your side.

  1. Chris may never want to return to civilization. I remember coming up for the video project and this land grabbed me an has never let go.
