Welcome to Frank Jones Farm.

| No Comments

Well, at least it would be Frank's if it was the early 19th century. I live on just a tiny part of what was once a 2,000 acre farm owned by one of Portsmouth, NH prominent historical figures.

Frank Jones was a poor boy who grew to be a politician and business man who ran everything from a button factory to a brewery. He drove business and industry into Portsmouth with his connections, creating jobs for hundreds, even as he steadfastly opposed switching from the gold standard, which would have supposedly made money cheaper for the masses, thus earning him the title of gold bug.

It's on my own little part of a gold bug's land that I hope to raise a garden of vegetables and herbs. Some simple food to make the summer fresh, wholesome, and green.
