Last week we were wearing toques and WAY behind getting our nursery moved to the snow covered lower “garden”. This week we scrambled in t-shirts pleading with our over 50 bodies to get-er-done. Well, Gord isn’t quite 50…his big day comes on Earth day, April 22, he will turn the big 50.
- For starters, it’s flat down there. No more pushing trees up hills in wheel barrows.
- It’s also better for parking and no more single lane long driveway to navigate.
- More room to organize plants…All the nuts are together, the fruit trees together, the berry patch, the perennial veggie patch, etc. I love being organized.
- And finally, people who show up and think we are crazy, can leave more easily. Ha, and that’s usually before we try and sell them a book on compost toilets…which by the way, will be for sale…we’ll even sign a copy for you.
Where: 3295 Compton Road, East Highlands, Victoria, BC
When: Sat March 23 AND Sun March 24 from 10am-2pm both days
Parking: on road and 4 spots inside the gate
What do we sell? Nuts, fruit trees, berry bushes, a few perennial vegetables, nitrogen fixers, soil builders, tea, olives, lemons, figs, mulberries, kiwis, hops, and LOTS more stuff you’ve never heard of. Plant list here
We have bare root chestnuts…the ULTIMATE food security plant. Chestnut flour is to die for. Gord and I recently made a berry clafoutis…100% local (mostly our own ingredients). Chestnut flour, sweet potato, honey, lemons, eggs, milk, and berries.
Hope to see you this weekend.
Ann and Gord
