© 2010, the about to probably be snowed in again (woohoo!) foodie farm blog where there's nothing like a little between-the-storms February sunshine to make you think it's a great idea to hang some laundry out on the clothesline rather than risk shrinking it in the one speed (that would be 'flame') dryer—and donkeys rarely pose for photos alone.


  1. Love seeing your donkeys! Not many people seem to have them. I've got three from the Bureau of Land Management. They were captured in the Southern California desert. Would love to compare notes with other donkey owners.


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!
