Alpacas And Majestic Beards

A few months ago I convinced Dustin that it would be a great idea to spend the weekend volunteering at Heartland Farm. I promised him it wouldn’t be too much work -probably just some light dusting, maybe we’d fold a few towels.

We arrived and were promptly tasked with digging out a tree in the orchard Well, Dustin dug out a tree. I pruned the pear trees. I don’t possess tree-digging-out skills.

After our adventures in the orchard, we set about destemming a million grapes. There is something very rewarding about destemming grapes. Plus grapes straight from the vine are tasty.

Majestic beard!

Sr. Joan and I spent some time weeding the front garden and admiring the height of the asparagus.

Dustin and I tried to befriend the alpacas and their crias, but they unimpressed by our efforts.

More majestic beard! I’ve been trying mightily to grow one, but to no avail.

Just joking.
