Halloween Night Dose of Cute: Critter Crossing

Critter Crossing

© 2010, the spooky foodie farm blog where, despite local superstition (seriously), we consider it very good luck to have a black cat cross our path—especially one as wonderful as Mr. Midnight, who spent 8 months at the shelter and made several 200 mile round trips to the adoption center at PetSmart before coming to live with us nearly three years ago. I'm so glad he waited. Oh, and that glaring white tub some of you are probably wondering about—it's full of (poorly) sprouted wheat for the chickens, which I showed you a while ago but still need to tell you how to easily grow your own. Thanks for your patience—and Happy Halloween!


  1. I love Mr. Midnight. Black cats are my very favorite and if they are shelter cats that is twice as nice. Abigail is our resident black cat. She rules the house. Happy Halloween!

  2. Hi to Farmgirl from a Polyglot living in France. Your farm adventure is unique and original.I am having a French adventure right now, trying to teach French through my blog. :) Bon courage!

  3. Great photo!!

    It reminds me of something that happened years ago. I opened the screen door to let our cat in and a field mouse ran out the door at the same time. They looked at each other and kept on going. (We later found and closed the entry to the pantry from outdoors that let in the mouse!)

  4. It's so funny to me to see a cat and a chicken so close to each other and then the dog looking on! It reminds me of a cartoon. Love seeing all your pictures and hearing about farm life.

  5. Can't wait to hear more about sprouting wheat. Very interesting! Especially with winter coming up. Thanks for the idea!

  6. It looks everyone is living in happy harmony at your farm. What a wonderful picture. I absolutely love black cats. Always wanted one with green eyes that I could name Sneetch.

    Susan, thanks for visting our site this weekend. We hope you liked it and you will visit it often.

  7. With all our black cats I can't let that bother me either.


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!
