Strawberries!

Our strawberries that were planted have been coming in over the past couple weeks. Despite the tropical storm we seem to be getting a good harvest of some beautiful juicy berries.

Sometimes the chickens like to help....



If you want a quart of strawberries, make sure to come early to the market. $4.50 per quart. They sold out very quickly last week. If you want a crate for making jam, we'll negotiate a price. We would also welcome a phone call if you want us to make sure to set some aside for you.

We now have a Monarch Butterfly Way-station....

Several environmental and watershed groups around PEI are creating Monarch Waystations as a way to help the endangered butterfly species. They include the Bedeque Bay Environmental Management Association, Wheatley River Improvement Group, the Hunter-Clyde Watershed Group, and the Cornwall Area Watershed Group.

We had their crew out July 8th planting trees and flowers in an unused piece of land at the farm as a way-station for the butterflies. We'll have a visit again later for some some butterflies in various stages of development to be put in.



James helped transport some of the transplants as they had hundreds and it was quite a hike.





 An old stream bed runs across the farm, they planted trees throughout this.
