The Road, Day 1

As Jon put it, we kicked Day One's ass today!
The road by Moncton.  It started raining as we were leaving New Minas, and then all the way to NB it was a mix of snow and rain until it began blizzarding near Amherst, NS... SUH-WHEAT.
Our driving crew: Jon


Co-pilot, Samson

Tomorrow we zip through Quebec and head for Ontario!

Fourth Annual Windy Hill Farm Kid Visit

...Let's be honest here, we would visit Alyson and Will even if there weren't adorable baby goats!  It's definitely our favourite place to visit, and the spring is always a good time to sneak away.  We have visited them each spring since we moved to NS, making this the fourth visit.  We always leave loaded up with cheese and greens and eggs and soap and preserves, and our spirits reinvigorated with passion for farming after spending a few days talking shop with Alyson and Will.  Their passion is contagious, and we are privileged to be able to call them friends!

Tonight for Easter we had a Skype call with my parents and my Gran, so here's our family photo!  Soon we'll not be 3,500 kms apart!

Mom has some nice greens from the greenhouse, here's Pa showing them off:

Happy Easter!
