Spring Has Sprung!

(Although it feels as if we've moved straight into summer. 84F today--no fooling. Last Saturday we were cutting firewood. Weird weather.)


  1. Beautiful photo farmgirl! Kind of chilly here in Indiana today.

  2. Lucky you with the warm weather. It's been raining here but finally the sun is coming out. Great photo.

  3. Winter was wierd to begin with -- very mild. It's been warm, humid and windy here. We finally got much needed rain, thankfully.

    Have a great day Farmgirl.

  4. Gorgeous photo.

    We've had the same thing, as far as moving straight from winter into summer. I unfortunately woke up too late today, and now it's practically too hot to work in. Unfortunately, the work still has to be done. :-(

  5. You are warmer than we are in Key West today ! I love spring in the north and your photo is marvelous.

  6. Hi FarmGirl!
    This shrub looks to me like:
    Flowering Quince
    Chaenomeles japonica
    The very early white, pink or red flowers resemble apple blossoms. The flowers are followed by aromatic, greenish-yellow fruit that makes a tasty jelly. This shrub is great for training against a wall.
    Hope that helps, Happy Spring!

  7. yes, quince. we had the same question. lots of jelly recipes. wood is used for knife handles.


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!
