Our farm on HR television
Our farm on HR television.
A few months ago, the editor Heide Kegel from HR television called us and told us that she would like to make a documentary about Wiesbaden’s gardens. An inner courtyard garden would still look good in the mix of contributions and whether we didn’t want to be there with our courtyard. Of course we wanted to. We already know a little bit about it. Three years ago there was the great article about the hero at the stove by Nina Thomas in “Hessen à la carte.” And RTL also shot here once. We were still very excited. You talk so much into the camera, afterwards you don’t even know what you were talking about and you only see the finished film when it is broadcast on television. However, Heide Kegel’s team was so super relaxed and personable that we had a lot of fun. And the film turned out so beautiful, shot and edited so lovingly, that I definitely want to link it to you here. Dear Monika from the Country Living in the City blog is also there. The film lasts 45 minutes, so you better have a coffee with it. Or a glass of wine.
We also treated ourselves to the glass of wine after the show. And thought back a few years when we bought the old farm here. Some people thought we were crazy. And we always had times when we were afraid of our own courage. What an effort it was often. Annoying times in rubble and dust. Things that did not go so smoothly and that were now and then much more expensive than previously calculated. There are three lively children who have their needs, two full-time jobs. Pretty crazy. Here you can see photos of the farm without any green plants. By the way, the wrapped sausage on the photo below between the two windows is our olive tree. That was the first plant we bought back then. And we had packed the tree over the winter so that it wouldn’t freeze to death. He didn’t have many leaves back then.
And if you want to see a little more, take a look at this post, there is still something to see inside. Today we are happy that we dared so much. We have already spent an endless number of valuable hours here in the courtyard. We cooked for so many dear people, danced on the tables, watched football in the World Cup studio, celebrated family celebrations, organized workshops, flea markets and also a bar camp. Even the blog might not even exist without Höfchen. And without him we would not have met a lot of great people at all and experienced so many exciting things.
So it is worthwhile to dare to do something, to put your wishes into practice and to shape your life the way you dream. The wine, with which we toasted ourselves, also has a story in which a woman dared to do something.
Beth Liston is the creative mind behind the Dark Horse Wine brand. In order to pursue her passion for winemaking, she ended a successful career in business. She has a weakness for tattoos, dresses in the style of the 40s to 60s and repairs her classic cars in her free time. So just do her thing without worrying what others think of her. I like that. When making wine, she combines traditional with fresh ideas and uses various fermentation and storage methods to get the best out of her grapes. The crisp, fresh rosé is the latest creation from Beth Liston. The perfect summer wine when drunk ice cold. And for us the perfect kick-off wine. On the farm, on courage and ideas and of course on love. Cheers.
