Blog Day 2005 (Observed)

What are we doing up here? Blog Day is over. She missed it. She's late for everything! And then she goes and sticks us here for no apparent reason. What is she thinking? Why isn't she posting all those recipes she keeps talking about? What kind of food blog is this, anyway? So she picked up a few bales of hay. That was days ago. She should try laying an egg!

Oh no! Do you see what she just said down there? She said "soon." You know what that means. We could be stuck here for weeks! You know what we need? We need our own blog. Definitely. I mean, hens are foodies, too, right? So, do you think is available?

I think you'd better be quiet before she posts her recipe for curried chicken salad!


  1. you definately have to give it up for hens! well spoken.

  2. Haha... Those hens look like little characters that actually would say something like that!

  3. hey farmgirl-
    fyi, i've put you on my blog roll - couldn't resist - what's not to like about a site that glorifies a henhouse full of filthy, squabbling, egg-eating chickens and an oven full of bread?! rae

  4. your comment on my blog was hysterical, thank you! i am also loving your blog, it's fantastic.
    thanks for visiting me,

  5. Too cute - the white chicken looks like one my parents had that wandered around the farm and would chase after cars.

  6. I love chickens! my friends' supply me with a weekly treat of golden yloks and lovely zabaglione! Thanks for showing these lovely ladies. And thanks for visiting me on my site--looking forward to more adventures on your farm. Cheers!

  7. Bravo the hens.
    You are funny and you have a beautiful "feather" according to a French expression which wants to mean : " you have a beautiful writing ".

  8. hee hee, the chickens are clucking about susan behind her back. You better discipline them or else you'll get a mini revolution like the chicken run!

  9. I do a curried chicken salad that I'm inordinately fond of.

  10. Speaking of chickens and eggs . . . . do you need any egg cartons? I hate to pitch them.

  11. Mijo introduces you to me. Your blog, and your life, are inspiring. I will come back for sure

    Have a good day


  12. Hi Shuna,
    Well, I can see whose side you're on. . .

    Hi Cherrybegonia,
    What? You think I wrote that?

    Hi Rae,
    Welcome to the farm! Sounds like you've been around chickens before. : )

    Hi Erica,
    Welcome to the farm! Thanks for your kind words. So glad I discovered Wake Up And Smell The Blog--you are a riot.

    Hi Joe,
    Oh Whitey is a character all right. But please don't give her any ideas--we already have one crazy car chaser around here! : )

    Hi Vanessa,
    Welcome to the farm! Sounds like you have it made egg-wise. : )

    Hi Mijo,
    Not you, too? Oh, but you redeemed yourself with that sweet feather comment. Thank you. I am guessing that phrase was created when people were still writing with feather pens?

    Hi Boo,
    Well, if you've seen Chicken Run then you know what I'm up against here! I loved that movie. My favorite part was when the husband said, "The chickens are revolting." And the wife said, "Finally something we both agree on!" : )

    Of course, Wallace & Gromit: A Close Shave is my favorite Nick Park film. Somebody involved in the making of that definitely has been around sheep!

    Hi Amy,
    That book sounds hysterical, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to delete your comment. The last thing I need is Whitey and the gang demanding electric blankets this winter. I already have to let the sheep in the house to watch "Babe" when it's snowing. . . : )

    Hi Kevin,
    Mmmm. That does sound good (as does the tuna salad parmesan). Very similar to mine, though I've never added coconut. And you serve it in pita bread! Perfect timing!

    Oh wait. Was this comment directed at the hens?

    Hi BB,
    Thanks. I can always use egg cartons. I'm sure the girls will start laying again soon--or their cute little replacement chicks will. . . : )

    Hi Tarzile,
    Welcome to the farm! Thanks for taking the time to write.

  13. Yes, that phrase was created when people were still writing with feather pens.

  14. Hello FarmGirl: I just mean that the photo gives so much personality to those hens!

  15. Farmgirl, I love your sense of "soon"! ...even though it reminds me distinctly of my mother's measurement "some".

    Me: How much flour do I put in?
    Mom: Some.
    Me: How much is "some"?
    Mom: Put in "enough".
    Me: Enough?? As in more or less than a cup? Or is it more or less than a dessert spoon?
    Mom; Yes. Some.

    AAAAAugh!!! :^D


    P.S. I admire you for joining in on the BlogDay 2005. When I saw that I had missed it because I too am late for everything, I just rolled my eyes and hoped I'd be in time for BlogDay2006.

    P.P.S. Also glad to have discovered

    P.P.P.S. And one last piece of verbosity. Those chickens are wonderful.


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!
