It Has Been Awhile - Sorry...

I know it has been a very long time since I have updated the blog.  I have been busy and my camera was acting up.  I liked to be able to show pics as I update what we have been doing.  Then I figured out how to use the camera on our cell phone.  I can see my boys smirking/smiling... 
Well Fall came and went, and winter is settling in.  We got through a week of wind and snow.  With the crazy weather the boys enjoyed four snow days.  This week they have actually gone to two days of school. 
Yesterday we decided to pull the boat of the water and let her rest on shore until spring decides to return.  We will still be at markets though and hoping to keep this, Face Book and Twitter up to date on what we are doing.  This coming Thursday I hope to smoke some fish for Wychwood's Saturday market.  It sounds like Saturday will a good day to take on the drive to the city. 
I have these pictures to show the interesting few days.

Sign up for a standing order

I know we sell out of fish quick and some keep missing it by minutes and seconds even.  I think this will help.  This is a quick sign up sheet for you to put down what you would like and what market you normally attend.  Just stop by Wychwood on Saturday and Andrew will have some with him next week at Dufferin, fill it out and you will be prioritized.  If we have it and if you have been added to this list, you will have it waiting for you at market.  I just ask you to tell me you e-mail or phone number so I can confirm with you that I have it or that I don't before market.  Or you can e-mail us now.  This is what it will look like:


Standing Order List

Name:

 

E-mail or phone:

(We prefer e-mail)

 

Market:          Dufferin      Wychwood

 

What would you like to be put aside for you?

 

 

 

If not picked up by 5:30pm for the Dufferin Market or by 10:30am for the Wychwood market, it will be up for sale to others.  If you are unable to pick up before these times or don’t want your order for a week or two, please let us know.  Thank you.
 
I hope this is a little more helpful.  I know it will help us and not disappoint so many.  The question of what you would to be put aside can be just a fresh piece of whitefish or more exact like a small piece of whitefish and a piece of Cajun smoked whitefish or even $10-$12 piece of lake trout and a $4-$5 piece of regular smoked lake trout.  All depends on how you want to word it.  I just hope this helps...

Will be down to Dufferin tomorrow

I couldn't believe it, but Andrew made it out yesterday to go fishing.  Today he is out there to lift and reset his nets for Friday.  What crazy weather yesterday and that is why I was surprised he made it out there... 
Anyways...  All else seems pretty quiet.  Chickens are enjoying this rainy weather for it brings out all the worms...  I ordered some ducks the other week and today we go to pick them up.  They are only day olds and will keep us company close to the house until they are old enough to manage on their own.  Between baby chicks and now ducklings, it will be off the cuteness scale for a while...  I also have to learn how to train a duck.  Boys want to know how a duckling sounds but I have no idea but I guess tonight we will.  My question is how to train a duck.  With food I am assuming.  Animals seem to be easily bribed. 
See you tomorrow at Dufferin and hoping to be at Wychwood this Saturday.  You can always reserve fish by giving me a quick Face Book message or e-mail or phone call.  It would save on the disappointment.  I am also hoping to start a standing order list.  This way you don't need to worry about contacting me weekly.  I will see if I have time to organize it for this week's markets but it is a work in progress...
