I asked my brother Brian, a firefighter, to film an old food forest project I planted years ago.
This is what he sent me:
I planted that little backyard patch of fruittrees and nutrient accumulators years ago and when I found out he was going to be there, I said "Brian - can you film that for me?"
"I don't know any of the plant names," he said.
"Just do your best," I replied. "Be funny. Be yourself."
The yamoothie!!! I can't stop laughing about it. I had to share with my husband, and he was cracking up, too. The yam was still covered in dirt when it went in, and it took sooooo long to blend up. So rediculous and so funny!
Thank you--and your sister!--for brightening my family's day!
Oh my gosh you have to get this out and publish in a bigger mainstream forum. This is hilarious and deserves much attention. Maybe Geoff Lawton could publish in his material. The light-hearted look at a food forest.
Who in the world would have rated these as 'not liking' them?
The amazing thing about that fall in the river was it was completely unplanned. I was standing on top of an old dam, running the camera when I saw Christi slip and fall in the river. My heart jumped in my throat as I feared the worst - the rocks were mean, and I imagined she might have gone down on her head. I left the camera and started for her - carefully, because everything was slick with algae - and then she popped up again, laughing. Whew. When we reviewed the footage, we both laughed, and hence the "coordination" line was added.
