back in the saddle

It's Wednesday October 27th 2010, and i have found my way back to the Blog. To say i am way behind schedule would be an understatement, but i have not given up! I have been inspired by reading some fantastic Blogs lately and i have so much i want to share.

i can't begin to re-live the past year and catch up on what has been, but i can start again today! Right! So today i learned of the “weather bomb” and stepped back outside and into the garden after many days of cold hard rain. Today it was warm and windy, perfect for hanging a load of laundry on the line and getting back into the water logged and to long neglected garden. I got one row of potatoes out. Big huge potatoes i might add, and after last years Wright Gully Farm potato distaste its looking like we will be rich in spuds this year! i also finally started preparing the garlic patch for winter and this evening we rounded up three of the spring lambs to go across the road to the Abattoir for tomorrow's “kill day`.

It has been over a year now that we have been selling our beef through the Ottawa Valley Food co-op ( And this fall will be the 1st time we will be offering lamb for sale too.

i`m also just back into the taxidermy work and have a beautiful Barred owl mounted and drying and Ward is four days away from the end of Chicken `kill-en` season and we plan to celebrate with a Rack of Lamb and competitive pumpkin carving this Saturday.....

not much i know, but slow and steady is my way! SMILES


  1. beautiful photos and a great commentary to go along:) xox

  2. wow - fun to find you have a blog! I'm the girl that still owes you a jar of sour cherry jam (I still have a few left - they have been fantastic!) Don't give up on the blogging - you have so much to share I'm certain. I'd like to get some laying hens/chicks from you if you have them. Fancy coloured ones :) I will dig up an email/phone - if not try
