IMG_0581 The picture on the side is one of the bigger garden beds I have been working on this year. The picture is a week or so old, but you can see the potato onions in the front, and the fava beans in a row. Also in the bed are brown chickpeas, some beans, and a tomato, and a few other things.

Today we went over to Byron and Carina’s to help them  weed their market garden, and drink Schooner’s.  It was sunny and hot but with a breeze to keep the bugs away. A slumped over, seated scare crow watched over us. We dreamed about having a rural PEI fest after Harbour Water Fest (DIY/punk fest in Halifax) next year. I tried to feed the piglets some buckwheat greens, but lately they have been eating leftovers from the restaurant/bar/golf course Carina works at, and just rooted through the microgreens looking for fries, I think. Yesterday I got two big buckets of used vegetable oil from Carina’s work, and got busy making some vegetable oil lamps. I followed some directions I found and surprisingly they work really well. It’s just old oil, a jar and a wick make of old t-shirt. It doesn’t even really smell like fried food or anything when you burn them.

I”m looking forward to summer visitors and beach weather …
