© Copyright 2008, the award-winning blog where scrolling through the late June archives reminds us that some things do stay the same around the farm - outside right now are little lambs (including Snugglebunny's twins - boys this year) and little chicks (well, not quite so little anymore), strawberry-munching turtles (they're everywhere!), a hungry J2, and a showy mass of cheerful echinacea flowers. Now if only there was a homemade pizza and a pan of blueberry bars in the kitchen.


  1. Those blueberry bars look amazing!
    Do you think I could replace them with mulberries?
    Our little kitchen is overflowing with them. So delicious!

  2. Ohh, blueberry bars! Now I know what to do with the ones I just brought at the farmers market.

  3. Love the antique farm equipment. I wish I knew what A.'s grandfather did with all the tractors on this farm--we don't have a single one. But our lawn tractor doesn't have brakes, even though it's not antique, just old and crappy. Does that count?

  4. We have a 1956 Ford Tractor that usually runs. I call her "Betty." I think the tractor guy down the street has made a fortune from Betty's ailments. Not sure she qualifies as an antique but she does the job we need done; cutting weeds so we don't burn like other parts of Northern California.
