We are getting ready to announce the location of the next Canadian Chefs' Congress in 2012. Nova Scotia is the host province and this is where we will celebrate the night before the congress starts.
We were getting on Porter Airlines for Halifax at 06:00 the next day. I had to get my white asparagus ready for the soup I was going to make at Craig Flinn's Chives Canadian Bistro.

Today we have students from schools in London, Ontario and Saskatchewan, planting Sea Buckthorn on the farm. There are many health benefits from Sea Buckthorn and it is a beneficial plant here on the farm.
When we are finished planting, I have invited all the students to my restaurant, Haisai, to enjoy a meal prepared by me and the apprentices.

Today we're planting cucumbers in pots. We're going to start the seedlings in house and move them out to the garden when the weather's good for growing.

Today's instalment of Every Day is a Special Day TV features a visit from Oyster Boy who has driven up with a truck full of oyster shells for our driveway. We have lots of ways of recycling and reusing up here at Eigensinn Farm and when our friends make a trip to the farm we make sure they don't come or leave empty handed.
