As we slowly ease into winter and another calendar year, it’s good to take stock and give plentiful thanks to the friends, family and wwoofers (now friends) who lent a hand along the way. Peace and happiness for 2015.
Barely a week from winter solstice, and the animals are relishing the re-emergent grass. Hazel thinks that climate change is perhaps not such a bad thing, but she lives solely in the moment.
As the snowline continues its inevitable descent down the mountains, the animals are still enjoying some green grass.
A little reprise of the fleeting colours of fall.

A beautiful rainbow to wrap up the last days of Summer. Happy Autumn, and the incredible colours it brings.
The garden and all us critters finally had a welcome drench of rain, after an extremely dry summer. Most crops did well despite the drought, with the exception of the celery and corn.
It’s always fun to see the farm through the eyes of others, here’s some pictures from Willing Workers on Organic Farms Jeanne and Carsten. Thanks for all the help through haying, harvesting, markets, festival clean-up, weeding, cooking, raspberry pickin’, pea shellin’…
It’s hard to get away from the farm in the heat of the Summer, but if doing so you could do worse than making a bee-line to the coast to Stewart and Hyder.
Happy Summertime! The chicks are sure loving being outside…
