    OK so its the end of the year and we have had some awesome woofers and… well some not quite so awesome.

    A few notable quotes (I would love to hear yours)

    ‘so you remove the pot before you plant’ well yes we do.

    ‘its thicker back home’ the excuse given as to why a woofer was using more than a roll of toilet paper a day.

    ‘I know its hard to believe but I could do nothing for two weeks’ we believe it, we definitely believe it

    ‘smoked salmon’ the serious answer to ‘what would you like for dinner?’ we didn’t go that far

    ‘i only have three coffees a day’ well no you have three double shots for breakfast, two at morning tea and a couple in the afternoon. We ran out of espresso coffee quickly.

    ‘when will my washing be ready to collect?’ the answer was after you peg it on the line and it dries and you take it off yourself.

    That’s so funny….our first WWOOFers arrive on Friday. We’ve had some great help from Fiona at Orange so let’s kick off and see how it goes. Think I will keep going with weeding out the non-starters.

    You are way too gracious with the Expresso machine..we’re instant coffee option only.

    By the way, send us down some of that Smoked Salmon, with the big black hole of farm life I’ve forgotten what it tastes like!!

    Will be interesting to hear of other hosts memorable quotes. Lisa and Brad

    Hahaha. I love it. We had a lovely German boy who asked if he could stop in at the “liquid shop” He was also amazed that our daughter was a barrister – “but you just press a button?” I really enjoyed conversations with him.

    We had a Chinese wwoofer who came straight to our farm from the outback in China. He had never had bread before, but loved my home made bread. When he was leaving to stay at a hostel, he asked if I’d show him how to make bread so that he could eat it at the hostel. He was amazed when I told him that it would be difficult to make it there and he should buy it. ‘Can you buy bread?’ he asked.

    We asked the same wwoofer why he chose our farm. ‘I wanted to see horses and I like old people,’ he told us.

    Love it
    Not so sure about OLD people but traditional chinese are very respectful of their older relatives

    He was being very respectful; it was just funny. He was a very nice young man.

    Young French girl complained: “every evening there is too much noisy incest!”
    Before you take away my Host status… She meant ‘insects’
    The cicadas can be quite deafening at sundown in summer. Lol.
