On our way to the greenhouse.

Trimming some pomme trees, apple trees.

Jessica putting the weeds she plucked into the grinder machine thingie. ( it gets jammed a lot, but its probably our fault )

20130225-183504.jpg
The greenhouse on Miki’s property, where we weed, plant, water and enjoy the 70 degrees weather inside.

Dinner at the Weber’s residence, in Marcellaz, France – Miki, myself, Jessica and Juan ( another wwoofer)

Peeling apart some garlics – Miki will have us plant these next week. He really does have a great system here – how to make a lot with a little. He buys a few kilos of garlics, peels them apart and plants the cloves. Getting x10 what he paid for.

20130225-183626.jpg
Tons of garlic we already conquered with another 10 kilo bag we need to get to!

20130225-183645.jpg
Making some pizza by using fresh vegetable from the farm. (It was delicious, well the second one we made was, the first one – too much dough and not enough everything else)

20130225-183729.jpg
Mountains near by.

20130225-183748.jpg
A view out the window of the room we sleep in, love seeing that everyday! Waking up to the mountains and going to sleep to the small specks of lights of people’s homes in the far away distance.

20130225-183839.jpg
The house we are WWOOFing in, 350 years old. Yeah, 350 years old…and still kickin.

20130225-183934.jpg
Juan and I trimming some branches, checking out the fantastic views from up there.

20130225-183958.jpg
Jessica before she headed up the ladder, it was our first day of work here. Loving it.

20130225-184014.jpg
Yeah – I thought the same thing – is that safe? Totally was. 🙂

20130225-184143.jpg
Chickens, they have about 30 of them – they are properly feed and have proper space to move around in. Our hosts only use them for eggs.

A view of the mountains from on top an apple tree.

20130225-184225.jpg
Myself and muel. Pronounced as mule, but sounding like meow.

20130225-184245.jpg
Jessica and our bucket of gardening tools.

20130225-184311.jpg
Just a beautiful shot Jess took on a walk of Marcellaz.

20130225-184335.jpg
Where we dine every lunch and every dinner together, the hosts and the WWOOFers.

20130225-184352.jpg
Me on top of an apple tree, relishing in the view of the Alps.

20130225-195022.jpg
Making some pizza with ‘from the garden outside’ veggies!

20130225-195034.jpg
We usually have a round of salad, just lettuce, but some phenomenal lettuce it is, so it doesn’t need anything else in the salad.

20130225-215558.jpg
A great shot Jess took one day when we tried to go for a bike ride around the village. Tried being the key word, it was FREEZING.

20130225-220009.jpg
Jessica took a pit stop while we were attempting to bike ride. Was too good of a view to pass it by.

20130225-220028.jpg
She tackled me onto the floor, I thought she was coming to give me a hug, I was wrong. Ha

20130225-220050.jpg
Jess and the Alps. She wrote ” I love you ” in the snow 🙂

20130225-220109.jpg
She did a snow angel!

Jess working hard at her weeding, she loves doing it! Me, not as much. Ha
