…so winds down the summer that never was…

Wow, what a brutal summer it’s been on the farm. Despite the weather I still managed to stay too busy to keep this blog as current as I had originally intended… the road to Hell and all that…
Anyway, 2009 was as damp and cold as a summer could be. Nothing in the garden was particularly happy, except the raspberries (there’s always an exception) which had their best year ever. This abundance led to the creation of a new jam… “Raspberry Tingle”… a surprising marriage between purple raspberries and hot peppers… come to the Gore Bay Farmers’ Market if you are interested!
Lotsa stuff going on in the world… little of it good. The Codex Alimentarius issue is poised to topple the world food system leaving only a handful of corporations in complete control. Remember, “whoever controls your food controls you”.
Also, just watched “The Obama Deception”… now I’m really worried.
There is so much to get into… all in due time… for now I just wanted to get this puppy up and functional again. Lets see if I can actually find time to keep it current this go-around!?!
Now for some down time with my therapist – my dog…

This is where it all begins…

Greetings from Gypsy Family Farm on beautiful Manitoulin Island (Ontario, Canada)

For anyone who has taken the time to search out this blog and is actually spending valuable time reading it, thank you and I hope that you won’t be disappointed. Since I am a farmer and not particularly computer savvy, you may have to be patient as I get a feel for things. I am fresh off a failed relationship with a website so am in a particularly fragile state of technological hurt. My website demanded a higher commitment to html which I could not accommodate. My website and I are parting ways. This could be a messy split, but more about that another time.

In the days/weeks/months and perhaps even years ahead, I hope to use this blog to share thoughts, ideas and even occasionally to rant at the wrongs of the world… there are a few of those that require immediate attention.

I am ending this first posting with an air of brevity as I have to take some time to explore technical options and figure out this confounded world that I have just committed to.

See ya’all soon,

Ted
