We are back! And Bigger than ever!

After a fantastic culinary journey to Honduras and back, we have returned to the farm in more ways than one. Our trip south took us to several semi organic farms, and we enjoyed some incredible food, which we will get to in short order! We rented out the city house and have moved the whole family to the farm. The cat is still a bit screwed up, but I’m sure she’ll come around. (or get carried off by an owl!)

We have built a green house , chicken coop and a pig pen, the chicks, twenty of them arrived today, as the internet guys were setting up our receiver. (If you live in the Kingston area drop me a line and I’ll give you a tip so your system is a bit cheaper!)

Year we got chicks! twenty Columbian rock X red chicks to be precise! Funny thing is that when I applied for the building permit and stupidly was honest and mentioned the chicks, the told me I was too close to a Provincially Significant Wetland to have chickens. I of course told them to go to hell so we will see if the chickens become rebels.

The gardens this year are going to cover about five times as much area as last year, and we are growing an eve larger variety of foods this year. One of the tomato varieties we are growing is from a 200 + old plant that popped up when they were renovating the Grand Theater in Kingston. 

Oh and lets not forget that we have started to get the cash together for our new inverter and windmill! We of course will keep you informed!
