I'm an artist, gardener, and a farmer. I love to make things and to make things grow. Wheel thrown pottery is my specialization and I do some metal casting. I came here for community but I'm not opposed to meeting like minded women. I'm a very independent guy and an introvert. Not interested in hookups.

When did the practice of men not carrying a purse but a wallet start?
farmboy2017 comments on Apr 9, 2018:
My ex-wife would buy me shirts with no pockets on them!!! I have to have a pocket on a shirt. She thought they looked nice but I can't use a shirt with no pockets. Farm boys have to have a pocket. It's a wearable purse! In grad school I carried a shoulder bag and loved it! I'd carry another one if the need arose. Now, where'd I put my jumper cables???
Are we meant to be with one person forever?

I'm Mark. I have 96 acres in Texas. Most in an environmental conservation easement; it's a restored short grass prairie. I have about 10,000 square feet of garden spaces that I can plant a farmer's market crop in. I'm building a tiny house on the site and hope to live there once again after having been in town since 1993.
Did you ever use one of these? I don't think I own one today.

Anyone with experience growing butternut squash and/or romaine lettuce? I'd love some pointers as I ...
farmboy2017 comments on Apr 8, 2018:
I grew some of those white squashes that were flat a few years ago. I treated those just like my regular squashed. I forget what they were called but I'm fairly sure they were not butternut. One thing I have learned is to not plant the edible squashes downwind of the ornamental ones. They'll cross-pollinate! Or at least that's my experience.

What was the greatest day of your life?
farmboy2017 comments on Apr 8, 2018:
Early May, 1986. I was back in the ceramics studio, mopping the floor, after taking my Final Exam in Chemistry. That was the last step in finishing my undergraduate coursework and the realization that I was going to graduate sunk in! Boy was I ever elated. And scared.
Should there be a legal minimum age for religious indoctrination?
farmboy2017 comments on Apr 8, 2018:
I recall an article that stated the human brain doesn't reach cognitive maturity until around age 25. So if there was an age that such a thing could take place, I'd vote for something way beyond high school or driver's license age.

Reminds me of when I was younger, at the mall with my granddad when he saw some young girl (to him, anyway) wearing jeans shorts with the butt cheeks cut out and lace had been sewn onto the men's boxer underwear she had on and it was hanging out of the cut out parts. He looked at me and said "She's trolling with live bait". I almost fell over dead. My granddad never said anything off color.

No TV for me. I got divorced two years ago in January, moved into an apartment and never even hooked up the free basic cable that come with my 'all bills paid' new digs. I just go down to the public library and rent free movies on DVD.

farmboy2017 comments on Apr 6, 2018:
Was it a John Wayne movie, maybe True Grit, where Rooster Cogburn is drunk and the girl is reproaching him when Glen Campbell responds by saying something like " You can't banty words with a drunk, all you've done is best a fool"? Or am I conflating that observation from two movies. Regardless, it's the same sentiment.

What would you do if the end was near?
farmboy2017 comments on Apr 4, 2018:
I'd go to my farm and tend my plants. Hopefully the asteroid would hit my side of the earth so I'd be vaporized instantly instead of a slower death by suffocation or whatever it is that happens to the other side of the world. I'd want it to happen during the day. Night time can be so lonely.

I do! I planted asparagus crowns the other day and I planted 20 heirloom tomatoes night before last to transplant around June 1. Tonight I'll plant some okra that I'll transplant down in June. I usually germinate indoors and transplant later on to get a head start on my season. I'd grow 20 acres if I had the acreage and a market. Oh, and someone to grow with:)

farmboy2017 comments on Apr 3, 2018:
I used to have this girlfriend (30 years ago in college) who used to say that when I walked across campus I looked like I was on a mission to kick someone's butt. I do have a sort of aggressive gait. I think it comes from all of those years of being a competitive middle distance runner. But, you'd never know it now!

Men, do you agree with this quote from Christopher Hitchens?
farmboy2017 comments on Apr 2, 2018:
I was never able to access the video link on my phone but I did find a computer and saw it. I think Hitch is right and men have disguised their resentment for their need of women. I could see it in the way my dad treated my mom and his dead brother's daughter. I can see it in most social institutions. I think it's very obvious. I wish I had some training in anthropology and sociology but I don't so maybe that's the limit of my ability to try and describe how that resentment is manifested.

Not me. It was ho hum the first time around. I can't understand it when these kinds of shows try to remain relevant. Kinda like Star Wars. It should have gone away after the first 3 movie releases. Even The Big Bang Theory has turned to crap. It needs to end instead of withering on the vine. I predict the new Roseanne won't last long.
