Midsummer Night Sky

One of the glorious things about this time of year is how long the days are… By ten pm I am still scurrying around, putting the last of the chickens to bed. One of the worst things about this time of year is that at ten pm, I am still scurrying around putting the last of the chickens to bed…

Shearing Day

Pieter, the sheep-shearer in action…

So quick, smooth, and efficient!

Spot the Difference: Farmstand Edition

Each week we should give a prize to the first person who correctly identifies the changes we’ve made to the amazing portable farm stand! We didn’t quite get it 100% done before the first week of the Peninsula Country Market, so each week we are squeezing in a bit of work time to tick another item off the To-Do list…

Very Quiet Sheep

After the shearing was done, from a distance it looked like all the sheep had lined up neatly along the fence and fallen sound asleep! Can’t wait to see what Leola (of Leola’s Studio in Duncan) will get up to with those piles of fluff!

Summer is Here!!

Thanks to those who have touched bases and inquired as to my well-being… Recent radio silence a direct result of extreme levels of activity around here!!

In lieu of regular written posts (as per my ambitious grand plan), how about regular photos? If you can’t tell what’s going on, you’ll have to make something up and I will endeavour to clarify during the next big winter storm (at which point I may be able to sit down long enough to compose a proper post!!)

This image is of Dani and Dad working on the back end of the new mobile farm stand…. At night… Using a projected image. Full darkness falls at ten pm-ish and they were still out there, beavering away….
