recipes

This time of year, despite the garden goodies we pick everyday, I get in ruts with food. It probably has to do with the busy-ness of the season, but we eat a lot of salads, tacos/wraps and pasta with veggies. I'm looking for some inspiration in the kitchen. Leave a comment with what you've been cooking with your garden goodies! :)

from last week--gettin farmshares ready

strawberries

We don't grow strawberries yet, but love to freeze and can a lot for winter treats. For the past couple of years, I've bought our strawberries from Woods Farm Market. They have some beautiful berries!





Not the prettiest pie in this photo, but delicious with some homemade whipped cream. :)

Joining Soulemama's {this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Out and about

A trip to the "big city".


Their favorite part--the parking garage!

Then a stop at our friends' house to eat a picnic lunch and play.



A trip to the Nature Conservancy in NY to learn about native forests and plant some burr oaks, followed by a hike at Shaw Mountain.

Around the farm

A belated "around the farm" post. I've been busy getting ready for the opening (tomorrow!!) of our new, local co-op!

Z on two less wheels,
peonies from a friend, (my new favorite peony--have to figure out the variety)
our very simple washing set-up,
green garlic,


brassicas, onions and the chicken tractor in the distance,

broilers in the yard,
corn, greens, carrots and more,
and three little farmboys waking up...

suds

Well, my big boy's sick...he rarely gets sick. So when he actually does get something, he's out...like sleeping all day long on the couch, out. But it's given me time to get a bunch of soaps ready...



I'm thrilled that I found a place online to buy ribbon for the old Remmington, the massive non-electric typewriter we stumbled across in our barn!

Around the farm

We've had several storms in the past 24 hours...our pastures and plants needed the rain. It's been such a slow growing season for us so far, with a wet and cold spring, and now a hot and dry June. Hoping these rains help everything catch up.
