Where in the World are You? Write to Me!

Sometimes I wonder...who reads my blog? Do you find it funny? Informative and helpful? Interesting? I know that I tend to write about whatever I find interesting or things that affect my life and it might be boring to other people. I mean really...who wants to know that Chris wrote his last exam yesterday and got 1 answer wrong for a final score of 105/106?

I do know some of you personally and some by blog/e-mail. Some have been around since the beginning (Hi Nick!) and are faithful readers (Hi Helga). And some of you just pop by from time to time to see what we're up to. I appreciate when you send me a message or comment to give your opinions. The point of my blog is to share information and when you give me feedback it is greatly appreciated. I learn lots from you and hopefully you find my info helpful in return.

So, dear readers....I am wondering...where are you located? Is there anything you would like to see me write about? Would you like to write an entry for the blog? We're a global community here on the internet and so just because you live in Russia, or Australia, or Argentina or Germany...anywhere on our beautiful blue green planet, doesn't mean what you have to say won't be interesting or helpful to someone else. Leave a comment or send me a message to doulamum (at) hotmail (dot) com.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Even if it's just your name and location.

This afternoon I planted mystery squash (nursery didn't label them), edible pod peas and my last 2 loofah's into the garden at my house. I watered the greenhouse and main gardens out of town when I fed the chickens. Boy, it's sure been hot and dry this last couple of weeks so unlike most everyone, I'm hoping for a wet first weekend of summer. We don't pay for water where we have our main garden but we do have to pay in town here so it makes you wonder if a dry crispy lawn might not be such a bad way to go. Maybe just let it go dormant and paint it green. But right now I've got to go move the sprinkler and get some laundry started. Hope your day is more interesting than mine :) Don't worry, mine will be better once my husband returns tonight at 9:30 with my new bees.



  1. Hi Elizabeth! I pop in from time to time and I always find your blog fascinating - your range of interests is diverse and I love the updates on the unique and interesting life you are creating. I too am heading from Victoria to Halifax with family in tow to start school and a new life (or renew and old one since I'm from Hfx) in NS and I can't say how thrilled I am. We're also driving at least part way, as long as my children can be kept from blows! Sometimes fate seems to align in certain directions and our house in victoria sold lickety split, which I'm happily taking as a sign we are heading to the right spot! I'll keep checking in, so keep on writing,
    Cheers from Linnaea a soon to be ex- Victorian

  3. Hi Elizabeth,

    My little sister in Taiwan is addicted to your blog because she wants to know so much about farming in Canada. I live on the Wwestcoast in BC, Canada. Burnaby to be exact.

    Thank you for sharing so much of your info.
