Saturday Farm Photo: Heading Home

Coming Out of the Creekbed On the Way Back from Doing Chores

© Copyright 2008, the award-winning blog where farm work is a lot more fun when you have a trusty canine companion helping out (or at least keeping you company)—and we can't decide what we love more, autumn color or autumn light. But then again maybe they're one in the same.


  1. Autumn color is always welcome. It's the decrease in daylight that I'm having a hard time dealing with. It's dark by 5pm now. Now, if I had a puppy or kitten to cuddle with, I think it would be ok.

  2. I love watching dogs walk home. They have such a sense of pride :)

  3. Love your photos. I follow your blog in Google Reader but didn't know til this AM where you were based. Missouri, I see.

    Born there but have not spent much time there. Am saving for a homestead and Missouri is one of my potential states!

  4. Another beautiful autumn photo of your beautiful area with that sweet, sweet dog - thanks for sharing it with us, and reminding us of what's really important.

  5. Color. But that might just be because autumn around here tends to be sort of rainy, so not so much with the light.

  6. Thanks for your blog---the pictures, the comments.
    Just puts smile in my heart

  7. Hi Farmgirl Susan,

    Lucky Buddy Bear looks like he is having a great time...You always make everything look so special, you have a keen eye for photos.
    I must ask how is your new house and bakery coming along. When are you going to move in....Have a good evening.

  8. I agree with Sharon, how about an update?

    What a lovely photo. My grandpa had a dog named Buddy and our dog was named Henry. Coincidentally, my grandpa's brother was Bud and he was Hank (Henry). Too funny. Beloved companions they were. Farm dogs love to work, need to work, and love you more for it.
    Great picture, it sparked such happy memories for me!

  9. Should the pan be greased and floured?

  10. Such a Beautiful Photo!! I reminds me of my childhood in Iowa :)


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!
