Life on the farm is kinda laid back . . .

We've been here for a week and it's been anything but laid back.  Calming and gentle, yes, but not laid back.  There's ALWAYS lots to do.

We arrived in Moncton on Thursday am and by Friday evening we'd bought a truck and 5th wheel and were on our way with the truck to St. Andrews.  However, we had to head back to Moncton on Wednesday to pic up the 5th wheel.  Here's Ross with his new toy!!!


We've got a bit of United Nations happening at Bantry Bay these days.  Rob and Caitriona are from Ireland, Sarah from France was here yesterday (she actually lives not to far from where we're going), Nellie is from Germany and a mother and her 3 children arrived from Guelph Ontario.

And of course there's the vegies - plentiful and fresh!  This is the first week that fennel has gone in the weekly CSA (customer) bags along with garlic, tomatoes, cukes, zucchini, and much much more! Mike is just filling some bags of mixed greens for inclusion in the packages.  They have about 90 weekly customers that needs to be supplied.



Tonight we decided to have a "kitchen party" - the Irish folks are entertaining (guitar and singing) and Ariel from Guelph has his guitar and will join in shortly.  Always amazing times on the farm.

Sounds like you're not bored...have you had any time to do work? Love the truck and fifth wheel. Looks great for vacationing in!! Getting all the ducks in a row for the new business. And of course the retirement party tomorrow morning. You can be thinking about us.

Haida Gwaii (formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands) proved to be quite a contrast to my recent trip to Croatia. The number of touris...
