COVID-19 Takeout - Part 2 - Shelburne....

Apparently, some establishments were missed last week and soon after publishing our weekly blog it was brought to our attention.

A week has gone by and we've been able to review last weeks blog. So far, so good! We've only been using "Blogger" (this site) for a while now and we've limited stats on viewership for the old blogs we'd done in Facebook (check the public group "Welshtown Haven - Why", it is where the older ones were stored). Last week's blog has now accumulated the second highest traffic, passing an earlier blog on Allen Reid's YouTube videos but not as many as a more recent blog we'd done on Respecting The Entrepreneur, where we're asking people to focus on those smaller business.

So, in a nutshell, it looks like people are interested in who's providing Takeout services in the Shelburne area. Our goal this week is to add to the list; however, we'll most likely not get 100%.

We've received some input from establishments and others, thanks! Your guidance is appreciated. We at Welshtown Haven Inc. are not getting paid for these blogs, we're doing it to build an awareness of what's available for the locals; as well as, any travellers who venture out this summer and happen to be passing through South Shore Nova Scotia.

If you are a traveller, passing by please take the time to stop into town and utilize whatever services and establishments are open. Please observe the current "Social Distancing". Shelburne, Town and Municipality, is a small local community. Most all know one another, for better or worse. The community is helpful and kind to travellers. Our goal with these blogs is to raise awareness of the local area. Welshtown Haven feels confident in promoting the community and have every faith that your stop in town will be a positive one. In reading these "Takeout" blogs, you'll have a heads up on where to go to fill your tummy.

Boxing Rock Taproom looks to have "Re-Opened" to provide Contact-less Pickup. Yes, we know, Boxing Rock was the first on the list last week but our focus was on BEER! This time, it's on food. I'm not sure on just how active they are with the Takeout aspect but if you follow their Facebook posts, you'll figure it out.

Water Street,

The Beandock Coffee & Collectibles looks to also be opening its doors and providing Takeout. We've eaten their many a time munching on some treats and sipping a coffee, while walking down Dock St.! Good to see they are opening up. Again, checking out their Facebook page will probably provide the most up to date activity on what they are providing and when.

Ships Gallery near the main cross roads within the little town of Shelburn provides some nice PUB Grub! Transitioning from PUB Grub to Takeout one would think is an easy leap. We've been following what's been happening in town for the last few months and knew they were closed so, did not add them last week. Shortly after posting our blog we received our first "Notification". Ships Gallery plan on opening up for Takeout! Hot off the press..... "Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we will be doing takeout from 3:30 - 7:30". Check their Facebook page for the most up to date information.

Moe's Shake Shack "Be sure to stop by and try our new Salted Caramel Soft Serve. It's Lactose Free And Gluten Free !! It's Delicious", Oh, this hits a home run for so many people! Ya, you guessed it... Icecream! They opened the Takeout doors back May 17 but up front only served the Icecream. If any local could give an update that would be good? Is it still just that Icecream?

Nova Scotia Rollies and Catering Company, we have to confess as to not had the opportunity to try their food. Our property manager handles day to day stuff while we sit out of province 11 months of the year. Given the opportunity to try these guys, would we? YEP! Why did it make our list? Well, they came highly recommended by someone we know in town. Trying to dig up some info on them, we found them promoting the other establishments in town more then themselves! What I've heard about them, what we've seen.... Ya, they are on the list next time we are in town! Oh, and they are doing Takeout!

128RJ Husqvarna Trimmer - 10 Hours of use?

The  HUSQVARNA 128RJ is a.... <<Lightweight brushcutter, perfect for homeowners. Easy starting with Smart Start® recoil system, fuel pump and an always-ON auto return stop switch for trouble free starting. Fitted with a J-handle and harness. Equipped with easy loading, semi automatic, trimmer head and metal blade. E-TECH® engine for reduced emissions. >> Ya, okay.... that's the first review that comes up for this thing in Google (at least for us). With search criteria of "husqvarna 128rj review", you don't get much. I'm sure if we pop into the Amazon link they'll have something. Now, what's our experience with this durable item? This is a BLOG and that typically means a bit of a story. We will not fault the Dayton dealer, in the Canadian community of Yarmouth County. They were responsible and respectable while purchasing the trimmer, chainsaw and lawnmower back 4 years ago. Taking the trimmer back late this summer, they were also polite an

Welshtown Haven and Hugelkulture? The start of something more....

A brief description of Hugelkulture can be found at The Old Farmers Almanac , where the picture above is explained. The site UK Permaculture , provides the "Permaculturalist" view and Youtube "How to build a Hugelkulture Bed" , is is a short video on the topic. South Shore Nova scotia was originally formed through Glacial Erosion and Deposition . Different areas have different Soil Types , some Clay, others Sandy. Welshtown Haven is sitting on Silt. Silt makes excellent Loam; however, the trick in the transition is organic matter. When it rains (non summer months) it rains hard. Due to the soil, it filters down into the water table leaving the surface dry. What is missing is a solid layer of organic matter or loam. While an old growth deciduous forest would provide this, the predominant overstory has been coniferous. Over the years South Shore has been logged, harvesting the old growth and allowing the fertile upper layer of loam soil to wash away. So, the so

Upcoming Town and Municipal elections...

  Titan can be heard snarling and barking like a ferocious wild animal while he sleeps. He is dreaming. About what, I don't think anyone really knows. By day, he is a lovable Labrador quietly nudging for attention. Everybody has dreams. Some dreams we have while we sleep while others dreams while awake. It is these wakeful dreams of what could be, that can drive things forward or possibly into stagnation if they are to wild or ungoverned.  The Town Shelburne has an upcoming election for Town Council. The candidates are projecting what they believe they can accomplish and the towns people are looking for a way forward. Of concern for all are the Budgetary issues. Other common issues look to be available activities for youth, the cost of food, the Rail Trail and the issue of growth. Growth will occur within the area over time regardless of it being managed or not. No one has a crystal ball that sees into the future. Looking into the past to project a future vision can be difficult. M
