Today we are revelling in the fact that it’s a public holiday and also the end of our busiest week since we opened the guesthouse. During the week we hosted participants attending the Fynbos Forum. We had numerous exciting discussions around the breakfast table with members of SANPARKS and Cape Nature and other private consultants like Barry Low. We also prepared for the Robertson Slow Regional Food Market. I juiced around 150 lemons and made Passion Fruit and Lemon Pelargonium cordials and lemonade infused with Rose Geranium, Lavender. We made amazing tapenade from this year’s olive harvest and my husband packaged the most beautiful selection of heirloom seeds. The premium olive, lavender and fynbos soaps that we provide in our rooms were also specially packaged for sale at the market. Yesterday, our stall creaked under the bountiful produce! We sold almost all of the stock and am so grateful for each and every happy customer. A word of thanks must also go out to our very first volunteer on the farm, Fi, who worked tirelessly to help make this week a success. But her contribution is enough for a separate post, to follow soon!
