The weather was super, the company was great, and the destinations were awesome! It would have been nice of Casey to pull me up the hills, but oh well, I did get my exercise for the day!
Thanks for Geoff and Liz for being such wonderful hosts, and telling us all about their admirable efforts to make their household as green as possible. We really enjoyed strolling around in their vegetable garden and learning about companion planting and other details about growing your own food. Liz does lots of canning throughout the summer as well, so their pantry is well stocked for the winter. Geoff tries to take advantage of every bit of sun we get here in Maple Ridge with his solar panels. Liz doesn’t just have a green thumb, she’s also a skilled artist, and their house is adorned with her wonderful paintings and sketches.
After biking up and down the hills in east Maple Ridge, Liz’s blueberry squares and refreshing lemon barley water tasted superb!
