Hooray - rose to sunshine today and loads of prep for our friends' wedding festivities in the afternoon. Graeme Bancroft and Mel Jellett are young organic farmers living on a 90-acre property in Murray Corner, NB, in just a lovely setting.
Linda made a commitment on behalf of herself and Katharine to prepare salad (with only locally-sourced organic ingredients) for 120 or so wedding guests. Quite a challenge on a campground picnic table.
The completed 73lb salad was packed into clear plastic bags inside cooler bags, each with a bag of ice enclosed.
Then it was into the shower and on with the wedding outfit (making sure puppy poop was cleaned from all footwear).
After a solid week of rain, an absolutely perfect day materialized for this delightful young couple. They planned, scripted and choreographed every minute of the affair themselves and it went off beautifully. Just a super, super day!
Hi Linda and Jim,
I'm so glad that you guys could make it. We've been getting rave reviews about the food, and I have to pass those comments along to everyone who actually made the stuff. The salads were beautiful and delicious, and what was in that dressing?
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
