clearing land

Glad we aren't the first settlers on the land - just clearing the pond path is challenging. The pond itself is pretty full at the moment - very pretty.

Big T felled a tree and I chopped down prickly locusts on the path. We only worked for about an hour but I suspect we'll both feel it tomorrow. Big T has gone out to chop wood now and when he comes in I'll go turn over more veggie garden beds. The work really does never end.

can't resist a labelled picture

I think the labels are pretty self evident

but they are tougher to read then I thought

the path is one of our favourite walks, the light blue splash is the soon to be agility field, the blue is the pond,the yellow dots are all great spots to camp!

google earth picture of the farm

this is VareHarri farm (yup pronounced Very Hairy - very fitting for a working name for us it seems!)it's a mile from the road to the back back property line .. and a good hike to boot!

another blog?

call it my quest to compartmentalize my life

call it my quest to record the start of another new adventure our life

call it what you will but I think 107 acres in Prince Edward County deserves a blog all it's own

I don't actually think it will simplify life much in many ways - but it's a laudable goal - dontcha think?

at the moment the "family" consists of Big T and Me .. dogs (Sally, Hank, Brody, Thea and the going nowhere fast Fitz) cats (Dumont and Kali (not long with us now I fear), Nando (at 18 also perhaps not here too long) Julia and Flopsy) rabbits (Pongo and Buddy) and the parrots (Sully, Pickles, Olive, Nestor, and the littles)
big family - maybe we do need all the land ;)
