So we've been looking at some farms lately. Just for fun, seeing some local real estate. They're super beautiful, and the countryside is so different than the beach. Also it sort of gives us a view into a different lifestyle. Sort of the farmer/gardener, 'interior' (that's what they call the area of the country inland) life. We both enjoy gardening (okay, I like to garden, Toby likes to watch), and working with our hands, so maybe someday this will be something we do. The first farm we looked at was a pousada in it's previous life, a little hotel. Now it houses a family who maintain the land and make a small profit on the produce they grow. After touring the property, which was expansive and full of fun plants, cows and little surprises, the owners sent us away with more produce than we knew what to do with. Pretty fun.These were the family's little gardens, this one has lettuce, chives and cilantro. In the background there are some of the hotel rooms. What a fun straight little garden. Not exactly how I grow mine.
