We had a wiener roast and a ski tonight at Islet Lake in the Blackfoot. Beautiful night with great people. Thanks Anna, Treva, Devon, Christine and of course my little ski buddy, Rigel. There was the almost full moon with her companion, Jupiter, ringed with a double rainbow of colour and wispy clouds passing by.
Well, there seems to be the normal farm flow happening these days. Helpers coming weekly and new ones learning the 'ropes'. This year's hay is a bit disappointing, with more than half of it either moldy or too old to have any nutrition left in it, which means that we are getting quite the spent hay pile for anyone that wants good mulch for next year.
Two things I would really like to see... OK maybe more...
1. pigs eating all the quack grass
2. a freshly weeded and quack grass free asparagus patch
3. a clay oven
4. a thatched shade/wind break around the fire pit
5. Rigel's hut finished
6. More people coming out here to visit and learn and work.
Here are the two fuzzy winter beauties: Zara and Zoe
