I have a few questions for those of you in the area who read my blog. I'm looking for a few leads or recommendations for the following:
- A source of local, pastured: beef , bison, whole chickens, maybe even venison or other fowl.
- A good -yet not terribly expensive- family photographer. Not for photographs in a studio. More of the outdoors walking-as-a-family-down-a-tree-covered-path variety. Emphasis on the not too expensive bit. Really, I just want a picture of all five of us together. That's in focus. I promised my mom one for Christmas (hi, mom!) and it's now almost April...
- Someone with raspberry shoots and/or strawberry creepers to give away this spring.
- Anyone who might want to buy an alto saxophone.
Also, could you leave a comment and let me know if this is really spring. Is it here for good? To stay? Living in the prairies, I grew up never being able to trust spring thanks to the very real possibility of snow in May and the constant threat of frost into June.
So am I free to start planning my garden? What's a normal Ottawa spring?
