preserving a way of life

For as long as we can remember, fire has been a tool for humans. From clearing areas for living and growing to using firewood to cook food and keep homes warm throughout the colder months, fire is an integral part of our life, especially life on the farm, as Sarah Loten explores in “Forged by Fire” (page 28). While fire has been a way for us to control our surroundings, it’s interesting to note, and terrifying to see, how climate change may be turning our greatest ally against us in the form of uncontrollable wildfires. As Vanessa Farnsworth explains in her story (page 23), with back-to-back devastating wildfire seasons in 2017 and 2018, many Canadians have started to wonder if this is the beginning of a future filled with smoke and fire.…

BLAST FROM THE PAST This morning was special. I opened my gift of Harrowsmith from a very thoughtful son. During the 1970s, I would arise in the country south of Barrie and read Harrowsmith, in preparation for attending to my business on Bay Street. Even when I travelled throughout the U.S. on business, I tucked the magazine into my suitcase, to read whilst away. Opening up Harrowsmith down in the States calmed me and brought me great happiness. It was a wonderful balance to my Wall Street pressure. After all these years, to look at the cover and once again open up the magazine was quite the experience. And, holy cow, Batman, the content is as invigorating as it was in the 1970s. Keith K.B. Bullen, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario TELL IT LIKE IT IS,…

how to attract the most desirable winter birds

One very important fact we have learned is that birds do not need us to feed them. Many well-intentioned feeders of birds (versus “bird feeders”) believe that wild birds become dependent on us for food. Other than, perhaps, the coldest days of the year and the ones with the deepest snowfall, birds are very capable of finding food from natural sources. They are much like us in that they will take the easiest path to a meal, and if it happens to be at your feeder, then that is where they will congregate. The good news is that you are free to go on vacation without having to worry about keeping the bird feeders full. There’s no need to feel guilty. Choosing the right birdseed When it comes to feeding birds, be…
