1. You are never too poor to get boxes.
2. If your dad offers you the use of a one tonne van, use it. I promise there is a vast difference between what a one tonne van and a pickup truck can hold. Probably about 3/4 of a tonne.
The good news is that the move is complete. Despite a gross miscalculation in how much time and space we would need, all of our things are at the farm. Jeremy finishes his job in Victoria on Thursday and the opera I’m working on closes Saturday. Soon we will be in full farm mode.
Unpacking has currently distracted me from my duties on the farm but Ramona and Stephen have been trucking along – seeding, planting, weeding, and picking. We are also at the Duncan Farmer’s Market now with salad and braising greens, turnips and radishes, and some other goodies fresh from the greenhouse. Not to mention more words of wisdom on the art of moving. Come and pay us a visit this Saturday in the Square!
