when the CBC mini suv pulled in to the drive way and we met with Khalil Akhtar, who has a national food show called The Main Ingredient, we thought this tea thing is getting fun.
we love sharing what we are doing and did so with Khalil for the Victoria based CBC radio show On The Island.

tractor kiss

a wise man once said... "any day on a tractor is a good day".

i agree.
i recently had the pleasure of a very good day of tilling the lower field on the farm.

thanks to monsieur wise guy frederic, a good friend and good neighbour who has a magical vineyard around the corner on mays road called saison for sharing the day.

. . . do what you love.
. . . love what you do.
