On Tuesday this week I visited George and Cristina at their vast 80-acre farm in Frankford, Ontario, to demonstrate how to build a scarecrow with their current guests...and we had a blast!
The proud builders.
I brought most of the necessary supplies (wooden crosspost, clothing, assembly tools) and guided the enthusiastic bunch as they put together their first scarecrow. The boys wheeled over a wheelbarrow full of straw for stuffing and, in under an hour, voilà! A scarecrow is born.
Now on duty.
After much deliberation during the entire building process, a name for the scarecrow was finally decided upon and Percy was temporarily set up outside the garden (he'll be installed inside later). Look at the size of that rhubarb!
Bonus stilting demo.
Green eggs and a ham.
They've got lots of animals at the farm and their chickens are really beautiful and, it's kind of hard to see here, but some of them lay green eggs. For real.
