Missing in Action

You may have noticed we were MIA last week, no market, no blogging, no anything. The plan was to have a glorious holiday, and we did manage a great day out in Saanichton, we did some berry picking and hit up the petting zoo at Dan's Farm with two of our favorite people. Then tragedy struck and we both came down with a dreadful combination of cold and allergies. The rest of the week was spent watching Band of Brothers and eating the spoils of our day foraging berries.

Not to worry, we are back on track and can't wait for the market this week!

Oh Deer, What Could the Matter Be?

The other morning after Matt had let the chickens out and headed off to work I was woken up at 6 in the morning to the sound our our chickens being tortured. Upon inspection it seems chickens are not fans of deer. What three big deer were doing in our yard I do not know... perhaps our apples really are that good!

(A note on the video: please remember before watching that I had just woken up and still haven't learned video editing.)
