© Copyright 2010, the fly by night, nap by day foodie farm blog where poor Serena and her strapping young son have been stuck in a barn pen eating hay for the last two weeks while she's being treated for mastitis (grazing on lush grass promotes milk production—this is no fun for any of us), but Crazy Lazy Daisy and that gorgeous luna moth are hanging out in there by choice.


  1. LOL... oh, I do so love pix of Daisy!

  2. It looks like she is playing hide and seek!

  3. Wow! Seeing a luna moth like that! That Daisy--she is such a sweetie and character. Thanks for all your posts. I live in town and miss the country. They make my day!

  4. I LOVE Luna Moths. When we go to the cabin on the Gasconade we see them, maybe one a year. Gorgeous.

  5. Neat photo of the moth/butterfly!

  6. Daisy is my kind of girl, party all night, sleep all day! She's just resting up to party again tonight.

  7. I love your stories and pictures. We had a wonderful Great Pyr "Sammy" and miss him to this day. Your pictures bring back so many wonderful memories. Thank you!! By the way Sam came from Missour all the way to Ontario Canada as a gift from a wonderful friend in Troy.
    Keep those pictues coming..thanks

  8. Love the photo of the luna with the... sheep? Goats? Beautiful!

  9. I have only seen ONE Luna moth in my entire life and it was drowning in the middle of a lake as I kayaked. I picked it out of the water and took it to land to dry and fly. Great photo

    Daisy might want one of those special big dog hammocks that are easy on the bones and very comfy for working dogs.


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!
