  • Hi Bob the Canadian here.

  • A while ago I did a video where I gave all of you guys a tour of my farm.

  • But it was way back in the early Spring, and I said during that video that I would give

  • you another tour later in the year.

  • Well, today's the day.

  • We're gonna have a look at the farm, and while we're looking at the farm I'll try

  • to teach you some words and phrases to help you learn English.

  • So on our farm we grow what's calledcut flowers”.

  • The flowers that you see here are called zinnias and we harvest the zinnias when you harvest

  • a flower it means you go out and cut them.

  • And we bring them into our barn where my wife spends a lot of time putting the flowers into

  • bouquets, and we sell the bouquets at a local market.

  • I'll get a little closer here.

  • This type of zinnia is called, “Oklahomaand it's a small pink flower as you can

  • see and it's very very beautiful.

  • One of the places where we sell our flowers is on a wagon that we have along the road.

  • If you look out this way you'll see the road, and people drive in during the day,

  • there's not a lot of flowers out here right now, and they'll stop in and they'll buy

  • flowers from us.

  • I'm not sure if you've noticed but you can kind of hear a little bit of thunder in

  • the background.

  • If you look that way you'll see that the sky is very very very dark.

  • And we're expecting a little bit of rain possibly this afternoon.

  • So hopefully I can get this video done before, before that rain comes.

  • So I'm out in the other part of the farm, oh I'm not sure did you see my hat today?

  • It says, “Canadaon it, because I'm Canadian.

  • I'm at the other half of the farm today and I'll turn the camera around in a sec

  • and let you see what I'm looking at here.

  • In this bed we have some more zinnias.

  • There's also plants in this bed that we would call, “weeds”.

  • So a weed is this type of plant, a weed is plant that grows and you don't really want

  • it there.

  • I'm not sure what the word for weed is in your language.

  • We have lots of flowers, but we also have lots of weeds.

  • These flowers here are called, “Sweet WilliamThere another flowers that's quite popular

  • when we sell our flowers at the market.

  • It has a beautiful colour.

  • And I'll take you over this way and we'll look at another flower, I'll show you this

  • side first, these are called, “Lisianthusand lisianthus are just a beautiful flower.

  • They look a little bit like a rose.

  • This is Jen the Canadian, she's the main grower, and those of some flowers that she

  • grew.

  • Just gonna stop for a moment and let you have another look at the sky behind me.

  • You can see that it's quite dark.

  • I think it's gonna start raining probably in about half an hour.

  • I think we're gonna get quite a downpour.

  • A downpour is when you get a lot of rain all at once.

  • So it will be pouring rain in about half an hour and I'll make sure I come outside and

  • shoot some video of that.

  • We grow quite a few sunflowers on our farm, but the way we grow them is pretty unique.

  • Let me, let me give you a just a quick look.

  • So this is a row of sunflowers, and these sunflowers were planted a few weeks ago.

  • And as I walk along you can see that every two weeks we plant sunflowers, so these were

  • planted even longer ago.

  • They're a little bigger.

  • You can see that these sunflowers, the leaves are even bigger yet, and we're gonna move

  • over to the next growing area.

  • These sunflowers are even bigger yet, so they're even a little older.

  • And as we move you'll start to see the sunflowers that are blooming.

  • Now I need to get around to the other side because you can't quite see how beautiful

  • this is.

  • These sunflowers are just super happy and kind of looking at you.

  • So it's kind of fun.

  • It's a really great place to take a picture.

  • I should do that for a sec.

  • So here I am, just kneeling in front of the bed of sunflowers.

  • You can kind of get a sense of,... they just make people happy.

  • I think sunflowers are the flower that make people the happiest.

  • So we really really like growing them.

  • Normally we don't let them open this far, but we have too many this year.

  • We have too many sunflowers so we can't harvest them fast enough to sell them all.

  • So just another look at the, at the sky behind me.

  • It's really starting, really starting to turn black now.

  • Not sure when the rain will start but we'll see.

  • I'll kind of give you a sense of some of the other things we grow you can see all of

  • this green behind me.

  • This is something we call, “Broom Corn”.

  • Now we don't brooms out of it.

  • You know a broom is something that you use to sweep, but this is broom corn.

  • And the end, when you take the seeds off you can use it to make a broom.

  • We primarily use it to put in bouquets as well.

  • People really really liek having them in bouquets.

  • There was just a really really big lightning strike behind me.

  • I think I should probably get inside now.

  • Ok.

  • Here comes the rain.

  • So you can hear it on the roof.

  • You can see my wife Jen the Canadian running by.

  • You can see the big drops coming.

  • In a minute I think I should probably run to the house.

  • Yeah.

  • I should probably get going sooner than later.

  • If you look in the distance you can still, woah, I'm kicking things.

  • If you look in the distance you can still see trees, you can see drops on my shirt.

  • I'm not sure if it's stopping or not but I'm gonna, I'm gonna make a run for it.

  • Aaaaaaah!

  • Ha!

  • Ha!

  • Haaah!

  • Ok.

  • I'm safe.

  • We can watch.

  • And we'll just let the rain come.
