Welcome

Spring 1991
Ray Davis, spring 1991

This site is about Tom and Mary Davis’ country homestead and farm in Mobile Alabama. It is also intended to be a tribute to the farm and life of Tom’s father and Mary’s adopted father, Artis Ray Davis.

This website is managed by Tom and the posts are intended to be a journal of progress and events in the yard, garden, and fields. It also serves as a library of info useful in the management and maintenance of this special piece of God’s paradise. It is not a commercial site with any purpose but to serve as a repository for things we want to access via the convenience of a web site.

An additional purpose is to share the farm life of Grandpa and Grandma (i.e. us) with our grandkids. The posts they likely will find most interesting are found by clicking the tag “Grandkids”.

2019 is our first full year living here and getting to see the changes of the seasons every day is amazing. The mild winter giving way to a wonderful spring and the many separate “leafing outs” that occurred, reminds one that the whole world is a garden.

“To grow things is a sacrament. It is to labor in co-creation with the Almighty. It is not so much to make use of land, but to be well-used by it.”  Neill Archer Roan


All things we undertake shall contain integrity, compassion, elegance, and grace.
