We are so lucky that we have friends and family who don’t mind the long drive from the city (2 hrs on a good day with no traffic!) who come and visit us. Sara and Stephen make it down to the farm at least twice a month. We have had plenty of other visitors which we just love. A couple of weekends ago we had Frans’ sister Josie and her hubby Chris come to stay. We did the obligatory farm ‘tour’ and made them admire all our hard work. They were sooo complimentary. Thanks guys!

This past weekend, Sara popped down for a night. Stephen had to work. So it was just the two of us. We did girly stuff like ‘face masks’, gardening and chatting. Sara helped with chopping back the ferocious growing spinach. She’s also pretty adept at pushing a wheelbarrow full of weeds. It’s great to have help in the yard. It makes the job half as long and twice as fun!

Sara loves wandering around the garden

But there are some things that freak her out! Sara hates worms!
