Week Twenty Six

I still can’t believe we only have 4 more weeks of the season. 26 weeks have come and gone. Wow! We’re almost near the end of the season. Saturday’s delivery was smooth and we had a great time having lunch with ‘Opa’ and spending the afternoon with our friends, drinking chai tea and crafting… okay, … Continue reading »

Final score: Guineas-2, Farmer-13

Me and our Guinea hens are through.  I’ve had enough of them and then some!  Their pest control qualities have yet to be determined as far as I’m concerned and their supposed “farm yard burglar alarm”goes off at ear-piercing decibels every time they see yours truly.  They’re not even that good on a plate, though … Continue reading »

OliveYou: Recipes from the Farmer’s Sister

Turnip Thyme! or You Won’t Turn-Up Your Nose to These Turnips! I’ll admit, when my sweet sister Melissa gave me the scoop on this week’s harvest it was met with chagrin. ‘Turnips? Really?’ I believe were my exact words. So I got to thinking…and cooking. Turns out (I’m really on a roll here) that turnips … Continue reading »

I spent Friday rinsing, spinning and bagging the freshly harvested arugula and the Farmer spent the … Continue reading »

Last place in today’s exhibits is a piece of work (pun intended) by yours truly.  This is my dumbed-way-down green house.  If variety is the spice of life sometimes it’s nice to have simplicity as the main course.               This is an actual photo of an actual artist creating a actual … Continue reading »

Week 24

I thoroughly enjoyed joining The Farmer for this week’s delivery. We had a great time catching up with everyone on Saturday morning and enjoying the beautiful weather in Savannah. Gorgeous! We’ve been so fortunate to meet so many people and to enjoy everyone’s company on a weekly basis. The harvest was more or less the same … Continue reading »

OliveYou: Recipes from the Farmer’s Sister

Eggplants! They don’t really resemble eggs much, now do they? Deep purple and glossy, they are very pretty. Eggplants belong to the nightshade family of vegetables, which also includes tomatoes, sweet peppers and potatoes. They grow in a manner much like tomatoes, hanging from the vines of a plant that grows several feet in height … Continue reading »

Week 23: Humbling

The Farmer dropped off veggies alone again this week. Bull Frog and I rested at home, while he recovered from a cold. He’s still coughing a little, but we should be good to go next Saturday. We’ve been swamped here, but enjoying every moment of this life we’re living. I realize more and more just how authentic … Continue reading »

Week 22

Week 22 Bull Frog and I missed the delivery on Saturday morning, because we were recovering from a 2 day visit/stranded in Savannah because of vehicle issues/happy week. Our friends were so gracious to let us spend 2 days and nights in their home, while our vehicle got inspected after it started smoking (the really stinky … Continue reading »
