A Seemingly Surprise Visit

Well the day finally arrived where we moved into our new abode...the panabode! And on that day came a great gift to me. Friends Naryn and Lesley from good ol' Clear Lake Manitoba came to visit for a couple days on their way through to Fredericton. Now for those of you who say wait a minute, St. Andrew's is on a peninsula, there is no "passing thru", this is true. So they came, they saw and they made delicious food for us and a spiffy new sifter. (Thank you very much Madame et Monsieur. I hope you had a great rest of your trip.)

Our biggest lesson on the farm to date...constant vigilance with the cold frames. They are like freakin' babies! We have burnt our plants twice and possibly froze them once due to lack of attention. So our non-farmer minds are slowly turning into multitasking farmer minds.

For all of you who don't know we are in the company of Kevin and Carol(the farm managers. They are our saving grace when it comes to being newbs. Carol hooked us up with a sod cutter and even if it was just out of pity for our sorry sod digging selves, it was still very kind! Kevin has been the know-it-all(in a good way) go to guy. He has helped us out with so many things, even pulling the porcupine quills out of Bailey's mouth at midnight! Bless their souls my oh my.

Well folks, there is a lot more to say and Mike still has a blog to write so I'll leave it to him. Just be aware that if we sound delirious or strange it is because we have started our night watches and are slowly becoming werewolves...owwwwwww.
