  1. Oh, I love fence photos. I do lots of them on my photoblog....and lonely tree photos too! You've capture the shadow of the fence which makes everything infinitely more interesting.

  2. I just found your site and am really enjoying it. Love the picture!

  3. I love your "eye" and the delightful scenes it recognizes will make awesome photographs. I could decorate my whole house in frames prints of your pictures and be quite happy!

  4. You mean fences have a purpose other than the aesthetic?

  5. Fence work is one of those truly never ending tasks in the country (sort of like laundry?!) there is always some part of the fencing that needs "work" - and it defines that word - ain't no easy fence. What did that Yankee fella say "there is something in nature that doesn't like a fence" - that is a paraphrase BTW.

  6. Yesterday I took a walk around our farm and tried to find a stretch of fence that didn't need fixin'. What I found was lots of crooked and broken, but I had a wonderful walk with the dog. I have a picture of a hay wagon on my blog that goes perfectly with your fence, I posted it yesterday...what a coincidence!
    Your blog is a delight, thank you for sharing your creativity.

  7. Country fences are so interesting! To me they symbolize the beginning of a journey, an adventure, a mystery, the start of a dream... That's why I have one on my homepage.


  8. I love your photo of the fence. It is a beautiful reminder of the art in our everyday life.

    TAG - you are IT! You have been tagged to list 7 Things we don't know about you!

    The rules are on Eastside Farm Chronicles. Have fun with it!

  9. I just love old wood-weathered fences, out-buildings, and the like. We have quite a bit of that out here.

  10. ALLRIGHT!!!! That's how I am going to refer to myself now....
    "Seasoned" and "weathered" rather than old and falling apart!!!
    Oh, I love to laugh on the farm!!!


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!
