all kinds of farmy things going on around here!!






We did our very first hay cutting on the 4th of July!! yippee - with any luck we'll be bucking hay by the end of the week -

We have two WOOFERS here on the farm this week they have been super - in fact as I type this they are doing the dinner dishes!! thanks ladies... they have stacked wood, put up fence, worked in the garden, helped me clean up the barn, helped with chores and bunches of other projects. Cecilie even tried her hand at driving the boys!





Speaking of projects My FABULOUS husband has been making huge progress on the barn 3 of the 6 posts are in and all the footing poured!! nice work hubs!





Have done some new paintings and one more today that I'll have to post tomorrow as I havent' taken a photo of it yet...





July 5th was Edith's last day thanks Edith it was a very peaceful end for her.

World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms

WWOOF is an exchange - In return for volunteer help, WWOOF hosts offer food, accommodation and opportunities to learn about organic lifestyles.

WWOOF organisations link people who want to volunteer on organic farms or smallholdings with people who are looking for volunteer help.

WWOOF organisations publish lists of organic farms, smallholdings and gardeners that welcome volunteer help at certain times. The diversity of hosts available offers a large variety of tasks and experiences.

Volunteer helpers ("WWOOFers") choose the hosts that most interest them and make direct contact to arrange a stay. Volunteers usually live as part of the family.

all that being said this wwoof connection was made through my sister cecelia : ) these are the third wwoofers we've had on the farm...

Nothing better than the smell of hay drying unless it's having the bales in the barn. ;)
