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.
The second way..a tad more savage, but equally effective.
1. Take two handfuls of berries.
2. Stuff them in fast...chew.
Allison over at The Life of a Novice! sent me this award two weeks ago. We were just going away, so I am now sending my thanks to her!
I must now share 7 things about myself..
1. I'm eating a Peanut Buster Parfait from Dairy Queen. How very un-organic of me.
2. I secretly have the hots for Kid Rock. He's a red neck beer singing fool, and damn, I like it.
3. I can't keep a house plant alive, and frankly, don't want to.
4. I had a big fight with my husband this morning.
5. One of my favourite movies is Captain Ron.
6. People magazine called three weeks ago and asked if I could style a shoot with Sheryl Crow and Sarah McLachlan - I didn't want to do it.
7. I only have six.
Well it's that time. Time to open up the farm tomorrow. Every Friday and Saturday beginning July 9th from 10am till 2pm until early September.
Ok, you're right, that's not a clock, it's the garlic scale. But it worked for my title - no?
This is my Shabby Shack here at Missing Goat farm. It's seen many photo sessions, renovations, make overs and visitors. We've had parties, cooked in the old stove inside, drank wine, and had pumpkin carving sessions in the fall. Oh, it's also seen a naked Bride and Groom covered in bubbles in the tub we use to have in there. Very long story.
Now, it's also home to this robin and her three wee babes.
Of course, they have nested right by the door.
So, if you live nearby, come visit. The berries aren't ready yet, but we have some of the garlic we grew, jams, chutneys, and an amazing coffee from Nova Scotia that is organic, free trade and bloody tasty!
Berries will be in soon, as summer seems to have finally come the west coast.
