We spend a fair bit of time with our hands in the dirt and our heads in the clouds. This is where we share some of the things we're pondering as we pick our way through this wild and crazy life, one weed at a time.
Some musings on Lent and Spring and not getting ahead of ourselves.
Good planning and preparedness make for smooth farming. Fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants farming (ahem… poor planning) makes for a good story.
Where to even begin? This team has been stealing our hearts these past six weeks. A blessing and a joy to all those around them, they seek out every opportunity to learn, serve, and build community. We couldn't have asked for a more dynamic and delightful crew, and we are so excited for you to meet them in person!
We don't have a kitchen table.
And we're not really all that torn up about it.
We've said it before, but really guys. We couldn't have asked for a better team of interns. These girls. They are quite something. Bubbling over with passion, ideas, and joy, Kayla and Bethany have brought us to a whole new level. But don't take our word for it. Come meet them for yourselves!
What to do with bolted kale, what's going on around here, and some repetitive sentence structure.

We tilled the last of the garden under last week. It’s the sort of thing that at first glance may appear to be a disheartening chore. Bidding farewell to the plants we tended so dutifully these last six months. It was certainly suggested to us on more than one occasion. But you know what? No.
Last time we told you about learning our lessons the hard way. This time we're telling you what we're doing about it.
We started off pretty strong. We told you all about bread. We drew some parallels between what we're doing and what we believe. We took some pretty pictures. And now we're going to blow it.
These two. Dang, friends. We could not have asked for two better interns. We’ve been a little slow, but at long last, here’s the introduction. We’ll try to do them justice, but we strongly suggest that you wander down and meet them for yourselves. They’re just the greatest.
Hey look! A blog! We wanted to keep you in the loop with what we're up to on the farm and what crazy-hare-brained idea Kim is trying to convince Rob and Phil to let her try this week.
Also, some bread. We'll tell you all about our favourite and how you can make it yourself.
We're just getting our blog up and running - but check back often for featured recipes, gardening tips, and gorgeous photos of the sunshine coast! In the meantime, here's a picture of some cute kids with their loot from a farm tour.
