What a beautiful blog. Kim and I truly enjoyed your company David. Newfoundland needs your level of inspiration and it was wonderful you took the time to enrich our understanding of agriculture. Be sure to make our home yours when visiting us again. Have a great season in 2014 and we will speak again… You can count on it. Sean and Kim (www.thegreenhouse.ca)
