I am officially in two shows this year – the Twist Festival in St Andre-Avelline, QC in August and the Woodstock Fleece Festival in October. After a great small discussion with a friend yesterday, I have a glimpse of my fibre path again!
I started a few weeks ago with my fibre flax planting for the year. Originally I was going to rent a tiller, but my husband wanted to buy one instead. And this electric cutie has already been in use at both the city and farm houses this year. I can handle using it for about an hour at a stretch.
We cleared a 6 ft by 21 ft area. I marked it off with a shovel, and we finished it with the tiller.
I planted 4 varieties (marilyn, vesta, calina, and melina) just before we had rain for a week. I have sprouting from all the seeds at various rates. It will still take a few days to see how well spaced it is.

I also picked up this new house. Behold the Bee Chalet!
