Feeding Cows Burdock

I grabbed a bunch of Burdock leaves to feed the big Mama cows.

I got their attention.

Their large tongues tug the burdock right out of my hand and they munch it up within seconds. It is a pleasant sound listening to them crunch. They are so gentle and sweet.

nom nom nom!

Second Page Complete!

I completed the second page of my 18 x 24 inch fabric book about the Feathery Ladies at the Wormfarm!

I made some Strawberry Jam for my Momma.  Naomi and I made Strawberry/Rhubarb jam as well. Yum!

A Beautiful Day

Crook sprawled out, absorbing the sun!

Work in progress.

The garden is full and gorgeous! I could never have a summer without growing food ever again.  I see myself always working on a farm, or helping my own little garden grow...or maybe...owning an organic farm of my own someday.  Either way, I have to have my hands in the soil somehow.

Rainbow Chard.

Chard for dinner!

Little apples.

Little pears.

Little squash.

Blackberries are almost ready!

I spotted a little skunk. I got so excited and started to follow her until I remembered they could spray me. I had a terrible image of everyone on the farm laughing at a stinky me.  I decided to let the skunk go.

Sunset Bike Riding and Moonlight Threading

Wormfarm through the trees.

I am sewing the many colors I have seen on chicken eggs.  I intend for the entire grid to be filled up.

Turkey playing in the puddles!

Yolk on Wood

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Fresh local strawberries!

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie.  It is the first pie I have ever made and I can't wait to bake many more.


My pink ride.  Riding down these Wisconsin hills is amazing...going up them...not so much.

Potluck Sundays and Rhubarb

Potluck on Sundays. I made a spinach salad with shiitake mushrooms that I sauteed in lemon juice, kalamata olives, capers, garlic and balsamic vinegar. Threw in some red onion and pine nuts on top.  It was delicious. I look forward to our potlucks each Sunday.

Found some Rhubarb...I think I will attempt my first pie!
