From Mother & Father Nature: Boggy Creek Farm (Austin, Texas) edit

Yesterday I couldn't get out of "Cerro Verde," it was so foggy and misty all day long, so I decided to stay in the premises and walk thorough the pepper's garden trails, check out the growing corn field and the new additions to the veggie gardens, among others. I put on my LONG rubber boots and "fumigated myself" with the bug's reppelent I have developped over the years: a blend of lavender, lemongrass, citronella and...catnip oil! Everytime I grab the blue bottle of bug-repellent, my weimaraner and the short-leggeg aranchist Basset hound, both of them truly beloved companions, start acting really funny. I knew about catnip and cats! BUT, somehow it also makes some doggies BANANAS. Life in the tropics I guess!

Back in the office, refreshing memories of my recent visit to beautiful Austin, Tx, we are sharing with you today an incredibly beautiful video of life and trade in an Organic Farm: Boggy Creek Farm, including an interview with Carol Ann, one of the owners and creators of such a natural paradise. I was in total heaven while I taped this video,...how about you? do you like it?

Have a delicious week! I could not spect less from you :D

Melissa

P.S. I originally recorded the video in a new Sony video camera, then I found out that it's is not compatible with Macs! From the bottom of my heart I say it stinks! Since I edited the video in a Mac, I had to transfer it from the video camera to the PC, then to my Mac. Definitely the result doesn't compare to the original quality promised by Sony. Anyhow...I hope someday both companies work out a deal favorable to the consummer so we do not have these kind of problems.

Hi Melissa!
I can’t see it either, I have a boss who won’t let me look at anything on the web, so I will check it out when I get home!
Good to see your back on to posting!

Hola Jeremy! glad to see you here smile It is a fun video, too bad the quality is not the best. I am getting a new small video camera that is compatible with macs. After much research I found one,...not too expensive.  Un abrazo,
Melissa
