We have had our first WWOOFer with us since 26the June, so he has been
with us for 9 1/2 weeks, and in that time he has totally caught us up on
all the jobs we have had on our list of "to do's". he has helped with
pruning the chestnuts trees, and mowing the chestnut orchard, pruning the
plum orchard and stacking the prunings, burning bonfires, chopping wood,
picking daffodils for sale, cleaning the cool room and the crates, mending
broken doors and painting. He is from Taiwan and his name is Ming Ren.
He has been such a well mannered, polite and hard working young man that
he has been a pleasure to host on our farm. Today and yesterday he put
together a wood shed that had to be taken down to make way for the shed
extension. It was quite a jig saw figuring out what pieces belonged to it
and what went where. I had to take a photo of him next to his
construction when he had finished today. Ming Ren will be moving on to
his next host on Monday and I know they will not be disappointed.
