Cultivating a Dream

By Pauline Hylton

I’m a farmer wannabee—except I don’t want to get my nails dirty. My husband is a professional fisherman turned wannabee farmer. For our 30th wedding anniversary, we bought a tractor.

My sons live with me in the very touristy, hands-down-gorgeous city of Clearwater, FL. Currently, I live on ¼ acre with a six-lane highway just up the street. Tom and I inherited a 64-acre tobacco farm in North Carolina. We’re selling everything and moving to Mayberry.

A taste of heaven.

We’re the Beverly Hillbillies in reverse.
