  1. Niki, so pleased you mentioned Open Farm Day. It is Phenomenal. If folks go to the website, all the farms are listed for all the areas of Nova Scotia. Take the kids (or not))), spend a day enjoying your local farms; let them share their knowledge as well as their product. We have one near us, Circle Farm. It's all about birds..and eggs...peacocks, Emu, ducks and more. All the farms are different.

    So glad you mentioned this.


Please feel free to leave comments. I welcome your tips, questions, thoughts and ideas (and suggestions for new veggies to grow!)
