Writings From Windridge Farm:
A New Story Is Up!

Skinny Chip Was Born During My First Lambing Season

I've just posted another chapter from my early years of country living on the Writings From Windridge Farm site. It's called "Midnight Mothers & Minding The Moonsigns: A Busy Spring At Windridge." It's hard to believe it's been six months since I shared the last Windridge story with you. It's even harder to believe that it's been 10 years since I wrote this one. So much has changed--I'm living a whole different life on a whole different farm. But one thing has most definitely stayed exactly the same--springtime is as crazy as ever.

I've put up the entire story at once, so those of you who have been wishing for a longer read will be able to curl up with a cold glass of milk and a slice of cake or a cup of coffee and a little plate of cookies (or perhaps a pot of tea and a couple of cranberry scones?) and settle in for a lengthier visit to the first farm I lived on (back when I really had no idea what I was doing).

Click here to go directly to the new story. Click here to begin at the beginning. And click here if you have no idea what this Windridge stuff is all about but wish you did. Enjoy.

And for the many of you who so kindly keep asking if I have ever thought of putting all this stuff into some sort of book, the answer is a resounding yes! Getting from here to there is, of course, a whole other story, but it is definitely something I really hope to do someday. Maybe once spring is over. . .

  1. Yay! I'm so excited. I love Writings from Windridge Farm!!

  2. Hi, I just made your bran muffins. They were delicious!!!! I feel so healthy eating all that bran. Tee hee!!!


  3. Can't wait to read it! I have farm roots but have grew up in Houston and have lived in NYC for 12 years. Needless to say, I don't know the first thing about farming, but sometimes I ponder the possibility!

  4. um, your link isn't working

  5. Susan - I have LOVED reading your blog ever since I first found it about 6-9 months ago. I read every one of them. But yesterday I went over to Windridge and read it all. I laughed and laughed and laughed. You are such a gifted writer - I hope you do put your stories into book form. I'll buy one, even though I've read all of the stories so far. Thanks for sharing your experiences with us.

  6. Susan - blurb.com allows you the option of creating a book from your blog. I am not sure how it works, but maybe you can figure it out. Just an fyi - I saw it on another blog and thought it would be a wonderful idea. Have a wonderful day.

  7. Hi (it's me by the way!) Can't wait to read new Windridge tales; I have a day off tomorrow so I'm going to save it till then. I am always laughing about 'memom memom puh'. Oh sod it, now I want some. XX

  8. Hooray! A new post at Farmgirl Fare! It TOTALLY makes my day to read something new on your site.

    I'm currently writing my own book and looking around for an agent. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Getting Published, Fourth Edition has been really interesting and helpful.

  9. Yippee!!!! I'm so excited about your new addition to the Windridge Farm chronicles. Keep 'em coming!

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!
