Wow.


Where Did All These People Come From? *

I'm thrilled, flattered, and still in a bit of a daze. Farmgirl Fare was chosen by the Blogger.com Team to be the June 15, 2006 Blog Of Note. So we've had a few more visitors than usual lately. Like about 12,000 more. Welcome new readers (please click here for a brief intro to this site) and many, many thanks to the Blogger Team for bestowing this honor on Farmgirl Fare. Like I said, Wow.

  7. what a beautiful picture. The kitty seems to be "ruling the roost" as it were. Your linked on my blog as well. As your blog reminds me so much of where I grew up (central rural Illinois)-I tend to visit often for a taste of my roots.

    Feel free to visit my blog anytime!

  8. Awesome site, Farmgirl! I discovered you through Blogs of Note and would like to add you to my Links list, if it's OK with you.

    I grew up with my grandparents in west central Georgia, and my granddad raised hogs and cattle; Grandma usually had chickens running around the back yard. I've long been away from the rural life, though, even though my sister and I still own land across the road from the old farmhouse. One day I hope to move back there, build a small house, and start an organic peach orchard. I currently live and teach in a small town and have acquired my first chicken, a Rhode Island Red who averages an egg a day.

    Your site's awesome, and your story's really interesting. It tells me that people like us (I'm a college English prof) really can make a living and a life in the country, and leaving the city/academic/artsy life can be a beautiful thing. Keep up the great work.

  15. I have subscribed to your blog so I won't miss anything, and I am looking forward to going back and reading your story from the beginning. And hopefully I will learn something in the process. I only have 6 acres but I would really like to try growing something. Unfortunately, the green thumb in my family skips a generation and I'm the generation it skipped! I also have to figure out how to quit my day job. Great blog-- keep the adorable pictures of Cary coming!

  20. Funny we both left CA for God's country. MO is the nicest place I have ever lived. My wife and I live near Branson in Reeds Spring with two cat inside and one WILD cat outside.
    Yes food becomes a love down in these parts if you have lived anywhere else. Why do you think the food down here, overall, is so bad?

  21. Fantastic, Farmgirl! (but isn't it a little crowded with twelve thousand folks peeking at Cary, poking in the hay barn, and eating your mulberries?)
    Congrats on a great honor and a wonderful blog

  22. Your blog is unlike any other I read and is well written...the well written part is hard to come by these days ! :)

    I have a kitten that looks a lot like yours. I think I've seen a glimpse of what Abby will look like when she grows up :)
