We're almost ready to go. The house sitters are here, we have enough cat food for Hettie, I've just watered the plants, we've said goodbye to the neighbours and after a snooze tonight, we'll hit the road. First stop - Megan @ Byron Bay. This morning was full on again with a crew from Today Tonight here. What a great bunch they were - Adam, Brett and Nick. And they had a real interest in growing food, fermentation and Nourishing Traditions! I really enjoyed having them here.
I still can't quite believe we're setting off on a book tour. I think back a few years to the beginning, when I sat on the front verandah and wondered if closing my business was the right thing and if a couple of ageing hipster doofuses could really grow food and keep chickens alive and productive. It all seemed so difficult from that end, but right now, looking back on it, just the thought of it makes me smile. It has been a wonderful and remarkable journey that made me a different, and better, person. It also brought with it many friends and for that I'm very grateful.
We've sent out all the books that were paid for so I hope yours arrives soon. I would love to know what you think of it once you've had a chance to read it. I hope we meet many of you on the road. I'll be updating the blog and taking photos as we go. Every book stop will be part of this record and presented here when we return. See you soon.
