Oh, where are we going?
I want to show you something.
I know, but what is it?
A farm. It's just down this road. It's a small place, but at least it would be our own.
A farm? How can we afford to buy a farm?
It isn't very large, only 40 acres. We wouldn't have to pay very much right now.
Is there a house on the place?
A small one, two bedrooms, but it needs to be fixed up a little. I can do the job myself.
OK. Is there enough space for a kitchen garden?
There is about half an acre around the house. That's plenty of space.
Then we can grow our own fresh vegetables. And maybe keep a few chickens, couldn't we?
Yes, and we can probably grow a lot of our own food.
What are you thinking about growing, if we do take this place?
Well, it really isn't big enough for corn. I thought we might try to raise a crop of potatoes.
Potatoes? There are a lot of work.
We are used to hard work, aren't we?
Yes, we are, but the money. Do we have enough to get started? It seems like a dream.
I think we've saved enough. We can pay a little on the farm and maybe put a few dollars down on the tractor, too.
