In A Tomtopus' Garden

Inna Gaddi Na Tommy


We've made it to a farm! I can almost hear your cheers through the interweb, cheers congratulating us on finally completing our quest! Yes, it's very nice. As you may have guessed, the farm is owned by a fella named Tom. Tom is from the UK, and runs an incredibly loose ship. He's been at this for a year, and is mostly just experimenting with a lot of different stuff, so he is flexible, relaxed, and just an all around grade A farmer man. The farm has a lot of different stuff going on, so we've been lucky to be able to work with a variety of jobs. So far we've weeded, made mud bricks, planted new bushes and crops, potted plants, worked with compost, watered, and so on and so forth. However, I did discover my hands have gotten a little soft from doing little manual labour, and I've got a nice layer of blisters on my tender widdle paws. Good training for planting though!

There are currently 8 of us WWOOFers, which is quite a large number, but it's good because they are all grade A WWOOFers. A's all around! A+ for WWOOF! Aside from working about 6 hours a day, we've taken advantage of Tom's movie collection, and watching movies is something that I haven't done too much recently. By the way, all readers who love rock and roll, watch the movie "The Boat That Rocked," it's really good. We've also played some poker, swam in the nearby canal, made visits to the nearby village, and I've also done a fair bit of reading. So it looks like we're going to spend about 2 weeks or so on the farm, leaving sometime in the beginning of April, and beginning the last leg of our trip.
So that's all for now dearest readers. I am safely in the garden of Tommykins and enjoying the experience immensely. Toodeloo!

Petrus, your blistered travelling boy.

That sounds excellent Greg, completely excellent. It must feel great to rest your weary head and feet. How are you at potting plants? I've always thought you'd be a natural. Did you win at poker, or did you have your trademark brutal luck?

Your adventures sound great, Greg! You should write again soon when you have a chance. I am eagerly awaiting more stories.
