Buying from Jenny’s Farmer’s Market is a highlight for cruisers. Fresh local produce at a great price brought right to the marina, awesome! So we thought it might be interesting to join a tour visiting her farm. She has a great place and I loved it, but it certainly is not a lifestyle for everyone…
Jenny’s house has wooden shutters that can close, but there is no glass to close out the elements. The house was wide open when we were there.
About 60 cruisers joined the tour and surprised Jenny with the huge turnout. It was like a big party.
Jenny has five dogs of her own and 11 that she is fostering. As you can imagine, it is a little crazy.
This brindle greyhound came and made friends with me right away. You think she knew we had a brindle whippet?
We just loved her greyhounds. They are just as sweet as whippets and maybe even a little more mellow. Great breeds!
Jenny must leave her house open most or all of the time. Not only does she not close out the elements, she doesn’t close out the wildlife either. These birds are nesting in a wreath on her bedroom wall. I LOVE IT!
Jenny also has bats living in her house. I think these are roosting over an enclosed closet, not too bad. If they eat 600 mosquitoes each an hour, I would welcome them, too.
However, that black dot over her bed is one of four bats that were roosting there. I wouldn’t be too happy about that. She needs a cover over her bed!
The bottom floor of her house is open, as many Grenadian houses are. In here she has a pig sty and chicken coop, but all were welcome to wander free.
Jenny also has donkeys in her backyard. This woman is amazing!
After hiking down a slippery slope through her farm fields and braving the biting ants, we came to a river where she has a treehouse.
Vanessa from Neptune II played us a little music as we picnicked, visited, and cooled off.
I love the bamboo around the island and Jenny has some big ones by the river. Did you know you can hear bamboo grow?
Dave was hanging out with some friends.
A lot of kids came on the tour and enjoyed the donkeys and dogs; then settled in to play games.
Time to go, if our bus ever gets here. He was only an hour or so late. Welcome to island time, mon. But the pig came out to the gate to say goodbye, so cool. Anyone going to Grenada, listen on the radio net for when Jenny’s Farmers Market will be in your bay. Her fresh produce, eggs, juices, and sauces are the best!
