Ginnie BakerGROWING UP URBAN, LIVING RURAL — IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE!

I grew up in an urban setting, not quite city but not the country. We had close neighbors, a lot of traffic and street lights that came on at dusk every evening.

My parents provided a good life for us but as I grew up, I always thought about living the country life.

When my corporate job was eliminated, I was able to fulfill that dream of country living. I had just built a new home on five acres south of Bellville and it was time to enjoy a slower lifestyle with my partner-in-life, John, and my old Golden Retriever, Millie.

Ginnie, my great grand father came to the Midwest when he was about six year old. I come from a line of farmers and really wanted to be one too but technology stole my interest. I made a career in technology until I retired and now I am a self proclaimed urban farmer with two vacant lot properties for gardening and a backyard with four raised beds for fresh table produce. The farming genes didn't go away even though they were dormant for 41 years. ***** Have a great Thanksgiving day.
