It takes a while through barren rocks to get to fertile valleys in Ontario. We took the long drive along the top of beautiful Lake Superior (in the green area of Ontario below). Then we shifted through the yellow and into the blue-coloured lakes country on our way to Canada's capital city, Ottawa. The Muskoka Lakes and Great Lakes shoreline drive show how much blasting has to be done to open up this area for tourist traffic.
Finally, after some not so spiffy camping nights, we managed to get to our niece's farm. Actually it is her husband, Dave's, family homestead. Dave is a retired geologist and Cheryl has been a dental assistant and esthetician. Cheryl was drying garlic in the old homestead barn. They also grow heritage grains and harvest and grind them themselves. The produce is paid for by the customers before they sack it up. People really want old-fashioned and organic these days.
Dave found this old grain sorter in the barn and decided not to repaint it. He figured out how to use it and found info on the Internet.
