Daily Farm Photo: 5/30/06

Morning Sun On Ratty Fence


  1. My goondess you do get up early there. It's only 8:39 am here on the right coast and you have already posted a photo for today. Do you get up with the chickens?? lol! Me too, but no chickens, only the neighbor's motorcycle with HUGE pipes.

  2. There's something quite attractive about your old fence. It seems like a very peaceful location.

  3. Reminds me of a place near to where I grew up, especially in the early morning sun.

  4. I know you're really busy, but you could probably do a line of greeting cards from your pics.

  5. I love the way you see "kodak opportunities". Again a beautiful picture.

  6. There's something peaceful about this picture. I love it!! (Greeting card idea from Steven is a wonderful idea)

  7. Hi Vickie,
    Yep, you gotta get up early to beat the heat--and catch the good morning photos. : )

    Hi Felice,
    I have to admit I have a thing for ratty old fences.

    Hi Nerissa,
    There is nothing like early morning sunlight for magically transforming something mundane into something special.

    Hi Steven,
    Ah, the photo greeting card idea. Thank you--I'm flattered by your suggestion. This idea has been mentioned and kicked around various times since I started this blog, but I've (foolishly) never done anything with it yet.

    I'm busy, sure (who isn't?), but I should definitely make time for something that might actually turn a profit, LOL! Unlike, you know, hugging sheep. Or even raising sheep!

    Hi Baking Soda,
    Thank you. I was thinking of you again today as Snugglebunny was walking through the grass and literally tripping over her twins. I don't know how you all do it.

    Hi Paula,
    Thank you. Yes, must investigate this greeting card idea further this time.

  8. The greens and pale yellows are so nice in that photo!

  9. Hi, I know this is exceedingly off topic for this particular picture, but you were the best person I could think of to ask this question of:

    I'm trying to make yeast dinner rolls. You know the kind, thin faintly chewy crust, big fluffy sweet on the inside. (Like the O'Charley's dinner rolls)

    For the life of me... I keep getting something more like a sweet yeasty biscuit. Still very nice and yummy - but not what I was aiming for. Any advice?

  10. I just came upon your site, and I have bookmarked it and your offshoots in gardening and food - two of my favorites as well. You take beautiful photos and you were very brave to make such an exciting change in your life. As far as I am concerned there is nothing better than having land, and sharing it with fauna and flora!
    Good luck, I will keep visiting.
    Anna Maria

  11. Hi Kenju,
    Thank you. : )

    Hi Bastlynn,
    I'm flattered that you came to me with your dinner roll question. Unfortunately I can't off the top of my head think of a recipe that will give you the results you are looking for, esp. as I don't know what kinds of recipes you're using right now that are giving you the biscuit type rolls.

    I would try checking out The Fresh Loaf site. They have all kinds of recipes and baking lessons and information, plus forums where you can ask for help. Good luck, and I'd love to know if you find the perfect recipe, as now I want some of the rolls you're describing!

    Hi Anna Maria,
    Welcome to the farm and garden! Glad you're enjoying your e-visits. Thanks so much for taking the time to write and say hello. I look forward to hearing from you again. And I agree--there is nothing better than having land and sharing it with fauna and flora. : )

  12. Thank you :) I will most certainly let you know, my roomates are busily munching on the batch I made last night and whining at me to go make more even if they were mess-ups. ;)

  13. all ur photos are very fine

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!
