© Copyright 2009, the flutter by foodie farm blog where this is what you end up with two years after buying a 10 cent impulse packet of bachelor's buttons flower seeds and scattering it in a raised bed in the garden—beautiful blooms that reseed themselves each year and blissful butterflies who come to feast upon them (you know we love our pollinators!). Talk about a bargain.


  1. Beautiful flowers, butterfly and photo!

  2. Ooo, they are beautiful! What a gorgeous color! You certainly did get a lot for your money! I may have to try that, too.

  3. Hey Farmgirl! I have a blog question maybe you can answer. Are you hosted on blogspot/blogger? I noticed you don't have that Blogger banner at the top of your blog and I want to get rid of it on mine.

  4. My Mom grew bachelor buttons when I was a kid. I've always loved their colour.

  5. Okay,. I simply love bachelor's buttons so you made me smile which I needed tonight. Thanks.

  6. The pictures are so simple and beautiful!

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!
