© Copyright 2009, the jackets are now out of storage after last night's widespread frost warning foodie farm blog where it was a nippy 26 degrees (and very white!) at eight o'clock this morning (I didn't have the nerve to check the thermometer any earlier)—but that's nothing for our wooly band of sheep (including seven-year-old Tana pictured above) who chose to sleep out under the stars instead of in their fabulous new barn (pictures of which will be coming soon!)


  1. Brrrr....those photos sure look cold!! The second photo is amazing!!

  2. Frost can make things look so beautiful!

  3. Loved the leaves in the water and the sheep, how can they make their legs be gone like that?! We've had the same kind of weather here too~

  4. that poor little sheep looks freezing! good thing it has a great coat to keep it warm.

  5. I'm sorry, but it was really warm here in California over the weekend. I'm still picking tomatoes and green beans and have poked the tulip bulbs back into the ground 3 times now (the raccoons dig them up) in anticipation of fall. Sometimes it's hard to believe we all live in the same country.

  6. at least the sheep are dressed for the weather!

  7. Chilly! We had to scramble here after two snowstorms in a week. I still haven't found the box with my gloves and mittens:)
    New barn? Can't wait to see!
    Stay warm and cozy......

  8. so not weather for the frost! Last week it snowed. Yesterday? 68 degrees! I don't care what season it is, just pick one already.


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.
