It is time to plant fall rye. The last years rye makes really good bread. Rye keeps the weeds down and looks good.
July 2015 picture of rye with hops growing on vines in the background. When its ready the rye starts to fall over at the top.
Sacha gathers the sheaths of rye from the field. Its fun in the sun.
Then its time to pick it. The nice thing about this is its great for making bread. Also it makes a good bed for the ducks.
Fresh sourdough rye with a little help from our friends.

For the past few months we’ve been raising free range ducks.
They are swimming in the pond and generally making a mess not so good at weeding but they do like slugs.
They are silly and lots of fun. Now they are prizing winning. Its great because we all put a lot of effort into raising the them and its nice to place them.
The ducks Valentine and David O. won first prize at the Brackendale fall fair.
Spring is here and its time to plant. A great day hanging out in the afternoon sun and we’re digging it. Planting potatoes and taking out the weeds, hanging out with family and having fun.
Just imagine what we can do next.
The trees are beautiful sunshine in the snow. Ice crystals floating lazily through the air. great snow for making igloos and snow angels, towers and playing for fun.
We love it here its so nice to be outside even when its cold the winter air is so fresh.
Lots of great big Maple trees make lots of great big leaves and great fun in the Fall.
