Ok Ok, I Get it..


Ok, Ok, I won't convert the greenhouse into a chicken coop.  This potato is on your side too.  I pulled it up the other day for dinner, and it seems that his vote is the same as most of yours - he loves the greenhouse too.
I ate it by the way.


The farm is doing really well.  Pies are selling, berries are really selling.



Jams are flying out the door, and I've next to no garlic left.
It's only been two weeks and I have a month to go.  Yikes.


My little Midge has found a love for hammocks...


..and, after a nasty ear infection and trip to the doctor, a love of fruit loops. 
We blame daddy for this.  He will give her anything if she asks.


So, I will counter those fruit loops, with homemade fruit pops,


out to the garden..


mash each fruit separately, and strain the raspberries.  I add agave nectar to sweeten - the amount is up to you - regular sugar will work too, but may be gritty.  I also add a few heaping tablespoons of organic planin yogurt to smooth it out.  Pour in layers into cups.


extra can be made into cubes for snacks or drinks


freeze


There we go.  I feel better and so does she.

Oh well. I was in favor of the glam coop but I understand your decision. It's a wonderful space. Now I can't wait to see what you decide to build for the chickens instead. You are still getting chickens, aren't you? That part of the plan sounded perfect. I do so love my girls.

Such luscious photographs! I especially love the split one of the berries, roses, and the garlic. So beautiful.
Country living at it's best!
And your little 'Midge' is so cute.

Lying in the hammock on a warm summers day, watching the world go by with my cat at hand was a magical way to spend a day. A great discovery for your daughter. Blueberry season here in Sweden. Must go and find some more!

Heather, I love your blog. I am your new biggest fan. Just gorgeous, inspiring photos. I showed your blog to my husband, and now he wants to move to British Columbia. Considering that we are now living in Munich, Germany, that probably won't be happening any time soon - but I do love visiting your blog and dreaming of owning a farm one day myself. What a life you have created! Congratulations and thank you for sharing :)

I'm with the potato. But of course you knew that.

It sounds like summer is treating you well, even with ear infections and fruit loops to battle with...and the farm is doing beautifully. It makes me glad, dear.

You have got the memories flooding back in with your homemade fruitsicles which I used to make when our girls were little. Your little one is such a sweetheart.

Hi Heather!

I just wanted to thank you for the purple blueberries that I bought from you yesterday -- they are fantastic and I am loving every single one! You'll definitely be seeing me again. Also many thanks for the garlic tips... I'm excited to re-plant my crop again this fall, hopefully with more success. :)
