Lynn's Comments: For three months one year, Rod and I worked on his sister and brother in-law's farm. They grew grain and raised pigs and I quickly went from being a city girl to driving the combine, chasing piglets, and building bins. It was an extraordinary experience, and the farm became one of my favourite places to take the Pattersons!
Lynn's Comments: Friends in Hamilton were curious about our summer plans. They made jokes about my being a city slicker, but I was determined to learn how to be a good farm hand.
