In summer our house seems to become a retreat center with all the guests we have. It is a lot of fun to show the farm to others and share work and meals. This past weekend we got to meet some new friends (thanks again to the Rainbows). Katie is a lovely, practical domestic goddess and her husband is a middle school principal in New Jersey. They intend to start a school one day that is both high tech and agrarian.
We worked and we played together. Here you see all the help Dave had in throwing vegetables to the pigs.
Brady and Katie eagerly helped in the hot garden and made some good food.
After moving fences, the guys took the kids to the pond for an afternoon swim.
And no visit is complete without a jam session.
