We have installed a new page on our website called ” Useful Links “.  Have a look at the various sites that we have listed, they are all very interesting, we think, and we hope that you might find them useful and informitive too.

We were very busy this past week, gathering firewood together, cutting and stacking it on two days and then going with the horses and

The branch to the right, centre is the one suspended in place by the grape vine which can be seen just past the bend and stretching tight to the oak in the centre of the photo.

wagon the following days to draw it back to the woodshed. Then we stashed it away in the shed. We did other things as well but I always forget to write things down which means that when it comes the time to recall what happened I can’t. The updating of the site did take at least a whole day on my part to complete, maybe even a little longer.

We missed the annual organic conference in Guelph last weekend, we were just far too busy to make the time to go. To-night is the first meeting of 2013 for the Southern Ontario Heritage Livestock Club (SOHLC), but we decided that we would not attend this meeting as too much was going on and it was too cold to leave the house for too long. We should be able to make it next month. In the meantime we’ll post the meeting schedule and agenda before the March meeting. The SOHLC meets the first Wednesday of each month through the spring at the research station at Vineland and if you need to know more about the organization contact us here.

Just a few photos. The photos of the grape vine on the oak tree were taken today. I thought that this group of good sized vines were quite impressive; in size, number of stems,and in the way that it wound itself around and up the tree. Impressive too was the branch that had broken from high up the oak and was caught in it’s fall by a rather small diameter grape vine that has held it up in the air for well over a year now. The whole thing looks better when actually viewed rather than seeing it in pictures though I do think even the pictures  convey the impressiveness of the scene.
