Kelly Mason LaBelle’s Photo Blog

kelly the farmerI’m Kelly Mason LaBelle—and I am living the good life! Five years ago, I began working part-time with my two aunts Lisa and Suzanne, simply doing office work.  Over the years, as The Gardener’s Workshop has grown, so have I. Now I’m a city girl turned farmer. My jobs on the farm vary on a daily basis, from soil blocking and packing all the beautiful kits we sell to maintaining our website. Every day is a new adventure that offers an endless supply of photo opportunities.  I will share my favorite photos of our farm and its day-to-day happenings as well as the people (and dog) I spend my days with!

Am I really making friends with this spider!

Like most of us, I was deathly afraid of spiders when I started working on the farm. But I have learned that living with spiders comes with the job! Over the years I have started to tolerate them more and more (with this particular species still being my least favorite).

This big guy is living in the sink of our plant room. Since I have to see him frequently, I gave him the name “Sink Spider.” Now that we’ve been introduced, I can’t do the usual– “HELP! There’s a spider!” I’m just keeping a wary eye on him to give myself some exposure therapy. Until tomorrow, Sink Spider! Maybe—just maybe– we can be friends.
