Pictureless Posts

Well, I still don't know how to add pictures to the posts. But that doesn't mean exciting things aren't happening! We are further along on finishing our greenhouse(hopefully pictures will be coming). A bear ate all our popcorn and left it's 'tag' all over our field. We just gave a farm tour to the New Brunswick Organic Farming Apprenticeship program a couple days ago. It's always fun to have new people out on the farm.

But most importantly, we got a new scythe! It's super awesome, and I've been cutting the lawn and field with it. For more scything info go to's where we bought it from). Brad's been working on a new bantry bay farm website, so hopefully that will be up soon, so far it's looking great. There's still lots of odd jobs to complete before we can sit back in a chair and give a big long sigh of relaxation. Then we have to plan for next year, which I'm really looking forward to, because now we know so much more than we did last year, and there is oh so much to plan.

One last exciting project in the works, is our human powered vegetable transport project. A.K.A our new bike trailer! We still haven't done much testing, but we're hoping we can take our veggies to market next year with a bike trailer(or maybe two). How fun is that? (I know you're all picuring me laying in the ditch with veggies all over the road and a runaway bike trailer heading down the hill towards St. Andrews) More on that in the future, and hopefully a picture as well.

Oh 'tis sad
that a bear ate your batch of popcorn,
But it might
not be worth getting very forlorn,
You see, Brad
might just be a descendant of Beorn,
And at night
he shifts form, and then back by the morn!
