You Can't Have Too Many Pollinators Around

A year of Daily Photos ago:
Camouflaged Garden Toad

Back To The Beginning:
I've posted another story from my early days at Windridge Farm, but since this one takes place in the garden, it's over on my kitchen garden blog. (The rest of the auction story should be up on the Writings From Windridge site soon.) So what do a newly planted clump of lemon thyme and some 11-year-old sugar snap peas have to do with each other? Click here to find out. And click here if you'd like to read more about my initiation into country life.

  1. Wow! I really enjoyed the blog. I kept humming the "Green Acres" theme the whole time I was on here, hope you don't mind. Good for you guys!

  2. I just wanted to say that I love reading your blog and your daily adventures on the farm. I've been a "silent lurker" for a couple of months now and just thought I would finally say hi. :-)

    Oh...and I LOVE your recipes.

  3. Cool Farm blog! I love nature and Farms. I grew up on one in West Virginia!

  4. Hi Reid,
    Ha ha, I love Green Acres. Haven't seen an episode in years and years, but I do find myself singing the theme song and thinking about some of the crazy episodes once in a while. (Which don't really seem so crazy anymore, LOL.)

    Hi Stephanie,
    Welcome to the comments section! So glad you came out of lurkdom to let me know you've been enjoying your e-visits to the farm--and my recipes. Feedback is always nice. Looking forward to hearing from you again.

    Hi Pam Aries,
    Thanks and welcome to the farm, fellow farmgirl!

  5. I just found your blog and I'm speechless. Well, almost.

    I recently moved back to the country. As far as the farm goes, you are pretty much living my dream life that I had to write a paper about (in Spanish!) recently. I love sheep, cats, hay, sky, gardens...

    Your pics are fantastic. I'll definitely be back!

  6. hi....i'm a country girl myself, but that doesn't mean that i still don't envy you! you have a fantastic place here....just thought i'd say thanks for sharing!


  7. Nice butterfly photo, a pearl crescent if I'm not mistaken.


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!
