GreenFin Music

I like to play guitar and write songs, but I haven't been able to do so for the past 2+ years because I've been so busy, tired, and sore from all the farm work involved with the fig propagation project I've been doing for the fig community.

Last week I decided that had to change, so I set aside about 5 hours (which really just equated to playing late at night and losing more sleep), and was able to create a short demo album of 9 songs.  Time was in short supply, so the songs are mostly just 1st-take rough drafts and many lack lead guitar tracks, but they still convey the gist of what I hear in my head each day as I work.

Here's one that I wrote for my Dad:

Fig Farm Tour - video

A friend from up the road stopped by and made a video of his field trip; you can watch it below.  It'll give you a nice look around and show you how things are doing right now.


[from the video--"Was that the one the mice got?" -- yes, two tubs of Ponte Tresa fig trees were eaten, and half grew back, but half died; the tub I was hiding with my hand was the sad tub with the dead Ponte Tresa trees.]

SHIPPING UPDATE:  I'm shipping the overdue tree orders right now and am aiming to get them all shipped out by the end of this spring.  I apologize again to everyone for the long wait.
