Where to begin. Well we just got internet back at farm last week! Very exciting. I can now update our website and our farm blog from the Community Center and respond to emails! Hence how so much time has passed since last farm blog updates. Its now Thursday, slightly cloudy, with a cool rain forest breeze passing through the valley. I just finished pumping water for the morning. There's some familiar bird sounds close by working on nests. Leilah, Farmer Mary's beautiful little geriatric poodle, is doing her usual frantic efforts to keep up with her as she goes garden to garden. With once empty skies void of birds after the storm, its such a serene experience to be here now listening to familiar bird calls that are repopulating the rain forest as I type: American Kestrals, Grey King Birds, Bananaquits, Grassquits, Mangoquits, Smooth billed Ani tribes, Redtail hawks, Bridled Quail doves, Zenaida doves, and of course Pearly Eyed Thrashers (Trushies). I'm still waiting to hear back again Mangrove Coucoo. There's so many beautiful memories to recount, here's just a few that had photos to go along side them. ;)
June 2018 So far
Bush Skills was in March. For many, our farm dinners was a return to normalcy. For us, it was having Bush Skills again. Was such a great one, yet saddest part was that the attendance wasn't more, it was less. this was our smallest one yet. Many just couldn't make time for it with all to be done in this post storm life. We hope to see a jump back to better attendance these upcoming ones. Some of this year's highlights: guest instructor Boudi, Bush Chef featured ingredient was a Redtail Boa Constrictor Snake meat, and Mrs Gibbs' students from Complex.
