Au Guiraudet

Farm Number 2

sunny 38 °C

Hello everyone,

I am sorry that I havent updated the blog in some time.... life on the farm is BUSY!!!!

Au guiraudet is a farm in the south west region of France near a village called Clairac. To get to the farm you have to take some windy roads up a mountain and the farm is at the very top. Now the mountain is not super high like Mt Tremblant as an example but its quite high and the view here is awesome!!!!! You get a good view on both sides!

The other day another wwoofer and I got a ride down to the beach and while we were on our way back (on foot) we even hitched a ride back up the mountain. Life here is different than in Toronto.. I am sure that it is very similar in the country back in Canada too. People help each other out and its a nice way to live...

Here they have qbout 40 hectares of land! It`s big! They grow all sorts of organic fruits and veggies.

Carrots
Beans
Lettuce
Peppers
Zucchini
Potatoes
Garlic
Onions
Beets
Squash
tomatoes
..... to name a few!!!

We are in the middle of a heat wave here. It's been an average of 38 the past few days... sweating all day long! work in the morning and sit still for the rest of the day because you can't do anything else. Even in the shade it's toasty. I don't mind it that much but for sleeping it's intense. I slept under the stars for a little while the other night because it was cooler there than in my caravan. So many stars...and shooting stars too!

But tonight is my last night here... I will be working in the morning tomorrow and heading off to my next destination.

I have lots of stories and pictures to share. Will try to post some up soon!!
