History of Weedy Acres
My grandmom and grandpop built my house in 1944. It made a couple transitions over a couple years as they could add on. My mom with her brother, Larry grew up here. I grew up just 2 miles from here, My 2 sisters and I spent Sunday afternoons here at Grandmoms playing along the railroad tracks pretending to be hobos. It was the 60's. IN 1986 when my grandpop died I took over the small working farm. I came to the farm from NYC nearly every weekend. In 2000 I decided to make the move full time. Technology made that possible.
While still in NYC, I was asked by one of the publishers I worked with what was the name of the farm. It was mid August and since the farm never had a name I could picture in my head the yard work that needed to be done, so I jokingly said, Weedy Acres. He laughed with pleasure, "I Love It", so ever since it has been Weedy Acres. So there is a reason to not pull every weed! Not that I ever could anyway.
