Thursday Farm Photo: A Little St. Patrick's Day Green

Daffodils in the front yard
With a splash of daffodil yellow.

Love looking at these cheerful flowers? They reappear year after year and are all tucked away here.

©, where we don't mark the arrival of spring by the calendar, but by the daffodils. And with 80 degrees today and highs in the 70s forecast for the entire next week, it both looks and feels like it's definitely here.


  1. Hello Dear Susan! You have inspired me to grow many new things I LOVE now, including arugula, fun radishes, aconcagua peppers, dinosaur kale and I am so very grateful. Seeing this gorgeous daffodil (when ours in CT are just beginning to poke out of the ground) reminds me to remind you to get your veg seeds started. You always work so hard at lambing time that you often don't get a change to plant your seeds. I am sending you cheers, hoping you can enjoy self-sown great seedlings this year! I appreciate you so much. Take good care, Cary

  2. Mine have flowered their heads off and are now fading, but I luved them while they lasted.

  3. Oh Susan! Thanks again for sharing 'the gang' with us AND the daffodils (Ineeded that!). Seriously, that Bert is a total hoot, not to mention those sheep and donkeys - all of them are always good for a smile and a chuckle.

    Now, about Nigella's chocolate chip am I ever going to drop some of this winter weight with such lucious temptations as those???? (I don't think I've ever met a chocolate chip cookie I didn't like.)

    Sounds like your weather has improved considerably - ENJOY!


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!
