Four Things Found One Day In The Forest: Photo 2 Of 4

Woods, Water, Want To Sit & Stare A While

Lamb Report: The weather is getting warmer, and the humidity level is rising. We have been fortunate to have had a mild May, but it is 87F in the shade today, and the sheep are getting hot. It's high time they were sheared. Current Lamb Count: 22. Number of his legs (not a sheep's leg) I heard our wonderful sheep shearer broke: 1. Number of farmgirls thinking "OH NO!": 1. I have a call into him now.

P.S. Cary is doing just fine. (She is curled up at my feet right now, and The Doodle Monster is sitting on my lap keeping an evil eye on her). I'm thrilled that so many of you enjoyed Chapter One of The Cary Chronicles, but we're pretty busy over here. I don't think--as Stephen and Lindy suggested--that a daily update is going to be possible. Unless, of course, they want to overnight ship us all of our meals. (If you like delicious food and writing and don't know Stephen Cooks and Toast, you're missing out. But I warn you: don't go to either one when you're starving.)


  1. Oh no! Is there an on-call sheep shearer?

    Love the water. The beauty of the outdoors is just breathtaking.

  2. You are so kind. We will all try to be patient while we wait for the next Cara bulletin.

  3. and am here at my floating work and home

    love to furry ones will you

    a big love from france to you as well

  4. Love the photos....remins me of my younger days on my Uncle's farm near Collie, Western Australia.
    Well done.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
