Many of my readers will recall previous articles about my dear friend Grace, a boomer, a girl from a farm in rural Ontario and someone who truly cares about people, animals and the preservation of the environment.
Grace is an example of a woman with the courage to just get out there and live in support of her beliefs. she spends her time between her home outside of Toronto and a farm in a remote area of Ecuador. On her Ecuador farm she grows bananas, coffee and a variety of other fruits and vegetables of the region. Don't get the idea that that Grace is a rich gal buying property here and there. She is a lady of normal means who exploits every opportunity and frugality in pursuing her causes.
Here is a new entry from Grace's diary. Fabian is her on-site farm worker.
" It rained a lot last night so the ground was great for digging. Fabian went to his father's farm and brought back 40 pineapple plants. It is fun
farming with Fabian, he can dig holes faster than I can put plants in.
I now have 100 pineapple plants of three different varieties. In the picture there are big ones, that we planted in February and the little ones that we planted today. The large plants will start to produce next summer and the little one in about 16 months.
Tomorrow is market day. Something has been chewing holes in my pig feed.
So tomorrow I need a rat trap, a large garbage can or a cat !! I will see
which is more readily available at the market."
