Remember last week, when we had four unwanted cows on our property? Well, we discovered they left us some 'gold nuggets'... and you know how much I love 'gold nuggets', right? Kevin suggested when I collect the manure – there were 5 nuggets – that instead of just dumping it into the compost as I was about to do, that I could dilute it in water to create, as our good friend Paul would say, 'liquid gold'. So, that's exactly what I did. I now have a big bucket full of this potent magical plant food. I felt quite giddy about it, too. As I was watering the vegetables, I imagined the plants growing big and strong right before my eyes just like in the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. Disappointingly, that didn't happen, but I do believe it will help the growing process albeit maybe a little slower than the fairytale.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
