Episode 1 - Winter

That first snowfall sifting through the trees portend a harsh but typical Manitoba winter. Robert and Caroline begin planning for the next winter and by felling and splitting wood and ice fishing for delicious winter pike.

Episode 2 - ​Spring

Spring represents new beginnings. Robert and Caroline feel liberated after the harsh winter, as they enjoy fresh asparagus from their garden and collecting wild spring greens such as the common stinging nettle. They also search for the elusive morel mushrooms.

Episode 3 - ​Summer

Summer is a time of growth and rejuvenation. The garden is in full swing and Robert and Caroline are enjoying those first fresh and young garden vegetables, but preparations for fall and winter are underway. Preparations for the fall hunt have begun; first by some clay pigeon shooting and getting their yellow Labrador retriever, Chase, in shape.

Episode 4 - Fall

Whether it is wild game for the freezer or garden vegetables for the cold room, fall is a time to reap the rewards for all our previous efforts. Robert and Caroline feel an urgency with winter around the corner and are grateful for the good weather that has allowed for an efficient garden harvest.
