Monday Dose of Cute: It's Monday

The Daily Donkey 23: Monday!

©, the full blown foodie farm blog where it's already been quite an exciting Monday, with a noisy thunderstorm crashing through the farm just after midnight and knocking out the electricity. Turns out the problem was a loose wire just two poles from The Shack, so the guys who had been working on the line since 1am—including spending quite a while stuck in the mud—were very glad to get our call this morning (I couldn't get through right after it happened).

We're the last ones on this line, so we always call in outages. Like our electric co-op tell us, Don't wait for your neighbor to call, because it might just be you! And sometimes it is. Oh, how we appreciate our electricity. Wishing you a power-full week!


  1. What's the mole count?

  2. I've been following your blog for quite awhile - even back before Cary was born! Some of your recipes, the soup with red bell pepper and yellow squash is one example, are ones I make often.

  3. Bert looks just like a Jack Russel in that second pic!

  4. Glad you got your electricity. Have a good week, free of thunderstorms and such:).Looks like your dog had an absorbing afternoon.

  5. Love the Beagle shots as he digs his way to some other world in hot pursuit.

  6. I don't think I could take it without electricity. Those old timers were really tough people.


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!
